Of course, Baevsky needs ingredients in order to make delicious meals so when going grocery shopping, she decided to bring viewers along with her as she restocked her customer’s pantry.

In the clip, the chef is inside the luxury LA supermarket Erewhon which has "niche, locally produced, organic foods catering to a wealthy clientele" and videoed someone taking snaps of her half-full shopping trolley.

"What was in my $3,515.09 Erewhon Cart for a client?” the on-screen caption read, before listing a number of ingredients including sea moss gel, rainbow carrots, organic juices, dragon fruit, purple artichokes, and vegan paleo doughnuts.

Someone else added: "Wait until they find out about Aldi."

"Did it come in gold bags? This has to be a joke," a fourth person commented.
