A British chef in hotel quarantine in Canada has divided social media after he whipped up all kinds of delicious meals – using the hotel iron.
Jago Randles, from Cornwall, created his Isolation Kitchen TikTok videos from Gec Granville Suites Hotel in Vancouver while isolating.
The 23-year-old’s videos include burgers, noodles, tacos and toasties using the hotel iron and the coffee maker.
In one of the videos, he makes a creme brûlée, complete with caramelised strawberries.
He also always uses baking paper on the iron, to avoid getting it dirty.
The chef also uses the coffee pot to cook liquids and steams vegetables in the coffee maker.
He has racked up nearly 70,000 followers, although TikTok was divided over whether it was genius or rude.
One person wrote: “I’ve seen hot dogs done in the kettle but this is next level hotel camping.”
Another person said: “Man’s out here cooking with an iron, eating better than I do.”
Many frequent travellers, including cabin crew and pilots, also praised his talents: “As a flight attendant, this is amazing.”
Not every agreed, in particular hotel staff: “I work at hotels, please don’t do this.”
Someone else said: “I guarantee the room still smells.”
Another person added: “Finally proof I can show my husband why we don’t use coffee makers in hotels.”
Speaking to Washington Post, the chef explained that he had a huge bag of cooking gear with him as he was visiting Canada to cook at a mountain resort in Whistler.
He also explained, now out of quarantine, that he had no complaints from the hotel while testing his cooking skills.
