Quarantine New Zealand customer turns boring meals into culinary creations
A quarantined guest at a hotel in New Zealand spent his time turning boring meals into culinary works of art.
Sam low is currently on day 13 of her two-week quarantine at a Wellington hotel.
For the past two weeks, Low, a barista and coffee artist, has been quarantined after a flight from Melbourne.
And with so much free time, the 28-year-old – with just a pair of chopsticks and a new chef’s knife – has passed the time by reassuring his meals.
He explained the reason for his reassignment decision to his 10,000 Instagram followers.
“I’ve always found food preparation and plating to be incredibly therapeutic, an outlet for my creative mind,” he says.
“It was important to me during my stay in quarantine in a hotel, especially when there are so many negative posts with managed isolation blogs and social media posts.
“I wanted to shed some light and be positive by being grateful and grateful for what the New Zealand government is doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
Low said he went into quarantine with his own dishes, cutlery and extra seasoning in case he needed it.
Some of the dishes he’s transformed include pancakes, waffles, pancakes, lamb shanks, and pasta.
But it wasn’t just the re-plate of his food that kept Low occupied.
The 28-year-old also carved animals from apples.
With his new, very sharp knife, Low carved a swan and a crab out of apples.
“I didn’t think the first thing I would use was to carve a green apple swan,” he said of the knife.
