The coronavirus lockdown has inspired many people around the world to take up cooking and baking at home and sharing their recipes on social media. Now, a new chef is taking the social media by storm.

A 1-year-old chef has garnered 1.4 million followers on Instagram since starting his cooking tutorials, "Kobe Eats", in February. “Hi I’m Chef Kobe. I like to cook, eat & explore in the kitchen!” his bio says on Instagram.

Most of his videos, which show him helping with the preparation of different recipes, have over 1 million views, with one video seen 3.4 million times. Kobe’s favorite thing to make is “anything with cheese, because he gets to eat it," his mother Ashley Wian told CNN.

In one video, he helps his mother cook butter chicken. "I made butter chicken & naan with my mom! She helped a lot with this one because there was lots of work to be done on the stove .. I made a few mistakes but that’s okay, it was a lot of fun to make this!!! I especially loved the part where I ate naan. A lot of it. I love naan," the caption reads.  

The videos began in February, Wian told CNN. The idea was to share with friends and family his excitement in the kitchen. He had just 200 followers till April 15 but then the jump was sudden, Wian told CNN.

Wian and Kobe's father, Kyle, are proud that their son is making so many people happy at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc around the world.
