Kiwi Barista Transforms Hotel Quarantine Meals into Fine Dining Dishes

Sam Low decided to make the move back home to New Zealand from Melbourne earlier this month.

To pass the long hours in quarantine at the Grand Mercure in Wellington, the latte art and barista champion has been deconstructing his meals and putting them back together, making them more appetising to eat.

Mr Low decided to deconstruct and re-plate every single meal the hotel provided him with, quickly attracting an audience on social media and it wasn't long before Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern cottoned onto Mr Low's skills and shared them on her own platform.

The images have now gone viral and Low’s creativity has been shared by publications around the world.

Check out some of his handy work.
