This toddler has inspired many with his hilarious cooking adventures.
While you’re having the age-old debate of what you should have for dinner this weekend, this three-year-old toddler has taken social media by storm with his creative recipes and incredible craftsmanship in the kitchen.
While we’re still debating if we should cook spaghetti
bolognaise or whip up hamburgers for dinner, three-year-old Ilirian Kameraj from
Great Neck, New York has garnered over three-million followers on TikTok thanks to his hilarious skills in the kitchen.
Throughout the pandemic, Ilirian’s mother, Dorentina, has turned her son’s meal prep time into impressive cooking demonstrations on the social media app, with her son donning an adorable chef’s hat.
Throughout the past year, Ilirian and his mother have cooked up dishes like roast chicken, beef Wellington, spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, pumpkin pie, steak and potatoes, and egg frittatas.
While the child creates some incredible dishes with his mom, it’s his hilarious (and often messy) approach to cooking that has struck a nerve with so many viewers.
In one video, for example, Ilirian cracks open an egg only for the yolk to fall onto the counter before adding some flour into the mixing bowl and getting it everywhere. The child also made countless viewers laugh by splattering batter everywhere, getting flour in his hair, and his ninja-like crushing skills.
His favourite dish to make? Roast chicken! “We've made it four times already. He likes to marinate it, he loves massaging it. And he loves putting all the stuff inside it,” Dorentina says. She adds that the videos started as a way to keep themselves busy during lockdown but the moments were so funny that she started sharing them on social media.
Dorentina explains that kids can accomplish so much in the kitchen if parents give them a chance to get involved. However, she explains that safety comes first, so she keeps her son away from knives and uses a chopping machine for vegetables instead.
“I showed him how to use it, and he loves slamming it,” she explains. “Now he has to use it always. I can’t touch it — if he sees it out in the kitchen, he goes and gets it.”
