Student Watches Cooking Video and Actually Cooks the Recipe

After spending most of his life aimlessly scrolling through cooking videos for entertainment, a student has made the leap to actually cooking a recipe from a video that he watched. 

In an interview with the Critical Tribune the student, who wished to remain anonymous, disclosed that upon watching a 15 minute Youtube video on how to cook a chicken cordon bleu, he actually went out and bought some ingredients and then cooked the recipe for his flat. 

“It’s incredible,” he said. “You just buy the ingredients, follow the steps, and it produces a meal with multiple flavours. It’s a lot of work but the results might be worth the grind.”

His flatmates were left stunned by the move, they said. “Usually he just cooks chicken drumsticks or fully phones it in and buys us value pizzas from Domino’s.” While the meal was a success, it has set a dangerous precedent in the flat, the student said. “It tasted mean, but it was exhausting to actually cook several different components of a meal. Next time I’m definitely going to do one of the classics, the flatmates can get fucked if they think I’m doing that again.”
