As the account continued to snowball, the former teacher landed a lucrative cookbook deal and decided to quit his job to focus on his passion.

According to symmetrybreakfast.com, the book will be called CookLoveShare, and will feature Zee's favourite breakfasts, including South Indian idli, Dutch poffertjes, and Sicilian gelato con brioche.

Our peanut butter on toast pales in comparison.
