She’s the supreme ruler of food Twitter. She’s the fast food loving, avocado-swimsuit wearing, cookbook writing powerhouse that has basically taken over the internet and won our hearts in the process. She’s Chrissy Teigen. Her love of McDonald’s is already well known, but now the Sport’s Illustrated model has once again teamed up with the fast food chain to bring you an awards season commercial, which takes place at an a nondescript awards ceremony where the audience is in need of a snack during the (often overly long) proceedings. Teigen knows the solution: the McDonald’s $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu. To celebrate the release of the commercial—which will air during the Academy Awards—Teigen chatted with Food & Wine about her favorite McDonald’s meal, the menu she’d love to curate, where she eats after award shows.

I get it with hot mustard because hot mustard is my favorite McDonald’s dipping sauce.” READ MORE “Food & Wine Interview”
