(CSE:READ) (OTC:LEBGF) (FSE:D0T) ("Legible” / “Company”), a global digital reading platform, eBookstore and e-publisher known for its innovative offerings, is excited to unveil the exclusive launch of iconic former supermodel Cristina Ferrare's first “Living Cookbook”, My Model Kitchen - Volume 1: Pasta.

I am dedicated to working with the entire forward-thinking team in bringing to life My Model Kitchen, the first-of-its-kind multimedia cookbook, to the public. Timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day and my love of cooking, I thought it only appropriate to time the release of Volume 1: Pasta to be today!”


Deeply rooted in her Italian heritage, the book opens with an homage to Cristina’s Italian family, setting the stage for a culinary journey showcasing a variety of pasta dishes, each representing the rich culinary traditions of Italy's diverse regions. From her mother's hometown of La Spezia in Liguria to her Nona's roots in Tuscany, she brings to the table a symphony of flavors and techniques. These recipes, passed down through generations, are a testament to the importance of family in the Italian way of life.


My Model Kitchen - Volume 1: Pasta is the first in a series of 15 Cristina Ferrare Living Cookbooks to be released bi-monthly exclusively via Legible’s Unbound membership service, which offers access to a vast selection of best-selling eBooks and audiobooks from major publishers and distributors, and compelling Legible original content. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced chef, these recipes will guide you through the process of creating authentic Italian pasta dishes in your own kitchen.


Kaleeg Hainsworth, CEO of Legible, said: “Cristina Ferrare's personal stories and family history bring a unique warmth to each dish, making this cookbook not just a guide to Italian cooking, but a passage into the heart of Italian culture. This is also a perfect opportunity to launch our large promotion campaign for a special annual membership offer in parallel. Please join us on in celebrating the release of this culinary treasure.”
