‘Read the room – pretty distasteful putting this up while most people have to quarantine without even being able to open a window never mind cook a meal,’ wrote another.

‘Gee must being doing it tough in quarantine,’ a third sarcastically wrote.

‘Lucky you, I had to do mine in a room with no fresh air and my view out the window was a brick wall,’ one Aussie wrote. 

Others took the opportunity to compliment Mr Morrison on his cooking prowess,  with one even suggesting he go on the popular television show MasterChef.

‘Good job, looks amazing. Keep up the good work!’ one said.

‘Take care! Sir, you need a thermomix for Christmas!’ another suggested.

‘Like a chef! Don’t forget the beers!’.
