London influencer spends £10,000 a month on food but refuses to cook
| Last updated
Despite his hefty spending, Cosmin Cernica says he refuses to cook as he hates the smell of it in his home.
The 29-year-old splits his time between London and Dubai, keeping his 104,000 Instagram followers updated with his various travels.
But rather than cooking or even allowing a chef to come to his home, the self-confessed gourmet foodie instead chooses to eat out or order in.
Considering he enjoys snacks like caviar, truffles and champagne, it's no surprise his food bill is sky high at the end of each month.
Speaking to Newsflash, he said: "I don’t like cooking and I don’t actually like the smell of food being cooked in my house, so the only options left are to either order in or to go out - which I do five-six times a week when I am in London and every day when I am in Dubai.
"Going out to restaurants for me is not only about the food, but more about the experience - I am very particular with the places I go."
When he does order in, Deliveroo just doesn't cut it - instead Cosmin orders from a luxury food app that delivers gourmet dishes from fine dining restaurants.
"I love a truffle breakfast, if it’s weekend that will always be paired with champagne," he said.
"I also love salmon sandwiches topped with caviar, they are my go to breakfast.
"Even if I order all the time I try to eat reasonably healthy so I would never order something from McDonald’s let’s say."
If he does fancy something dirty, he'll order a 'Wagyu burger topped with Oscietra Caviar and 24K Gold leaf' from his favourite chef in Chelsea, Mr Z.
Not only is the food fancy, but the influencer - who owns social media and digital marketing agency C&C Studios - likes the fact that the chef 'always delivers his food in a Mercedes'.
Although he admits he's not a 'health freak', he says he has 'limits and rules' when it comes to eating.
"I try to eat organic, I try to eat sea food and vegetables as much as possible but of course I love my champagne and sweet treats," he added.
"I do buy a lot of chocolate, the Chocolate Hall in Harrods is my guilty pleasure, I once spent £2,000 there in one go."
To those who think £10,000 a month on food is far too excessive, Cosmin said: "I don’t feel like it’s too much.
"It is just a number and I feel like food should always be top quality, it is at the end of the day a necessity and I would rather spend more on super high quality food rather than something else."
As for how he's able to spend so much, he continued: "I run a boutique Social Media and Digital Marketing agency, we operate in Dubai and London and it specialises in luxury brands.
"I am also a luxury lifestyle (influencer) and I work with different brands of digital campaigns.
"This autumn I am lunching a jewellery line called MIN with gender fluid pieces made in Dubai."
