A Wetherspoons chef who shared the kitchen secrets behind some of the chain’s food on TikTok has been suspended from his role.

J Salsa, 19, uploaded videos of himself preparing a chicken curry in the microwave and cooking customers full English breakfasts, paninis and deep fried halloumi chips.

The clips have been viewed by millions of people, with many shocked to discover that their favourite meals had been prepared in the microwave. The kitchen worker revealed that only meat and eggs are cooked fresh on-site.

But now he has uploaded a new video to say his account was found by JD Wetherspoon bosses, who then notified the management at his pub.

He told his followers: ‘My managers had a meeting with me today about the whole thing, the whole situation.

‘They were really calm about it to be honest, they understood and I sort of explained my point of view, that it was a mistake and I didn’t mean to cause harm to the company.

‘Long story short, I’m suspended until my disciplinary meeting, where I will find out if I get fired or not.’

J Salsa added that he had more clips to share with his fans, but said he would wait for the outcome of his meeting before posting them.

His most popular video so-far is him creating a korma curry, which has been seen by 1,300,000 people.

He starts the video’s voiceover by saying: ‘First things first, warm up your defrosted chicken curry in the microwave for about two, three minutes, along with your rice for another two minutes.’

J Salsa told The Sun the meals are usually defrosted a ‘couple days before’ they’re used and are microwaved once a customer orders them.

He went on: ‘People were shocked over the videos but I thought it was obvious. The curries are microwaved. How do you get a curry in five minutes for five pounds? They’re quite nice even if they are microwaved.’

The kitchen worker, who says he is a filmmaker at heart, first began filming the TikToks when he was bored during a shift. He posted the videos on an account with no followers, but began receiving thousands of likes within hours.

Wetherspoons has had a strict no social media policy for its pubs since 2018, and doesn’t hold a presence on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook accounts.

Admitting he was likely to be fired, J Salsa said: ‘I like my job and most of the pubs treated me pretty good.

‘I enjoyed working there so it’s a shame that I’m most likely not going to be working there. I feel like I’m excited for what the future has got in store.’
