Chrissy Teigen sure knows the way to her man's heart: Food!

The Sports Illustrated model may jet around the world for her sexy photo shoots, but when it comes to dinners with husband John Legend, Teigen prefers to dine a la casa.

"I love cooking—I'm obsessed with it," Teigen, who will judge MTV's new show Snack Off, told Us Weekly in May. "I used to watch Top Chef for fun, but then my best friend and I started going through refrigerators to use what we had to compete against each other."

When it's just the newlyweds, who tied the knot in 2013, Teigen relies on hearty choices. "He loves osso buco. Men love meat, and John loves my recipe—it's very spicy," Tiegen told Us. "I also make lamb a lot. He's easily impressed."

Another menu item Teigen is adding to her repertoire is sushi. "I'm trying to experiment more with seafood, because I've always been scared of it," she explained.

To become more comfortable, Teigen asked Chef Roble Ali, star of Bravo's Chef Roble & Co., for assistance.  "I had a sushi night at my house and invited my girlfriends. Roble came over and taught us how to make sushi—I got inspired. I have an amazing spicy tuna recipe," Teigen told Us. "It's fun and so easy to make."
