A taste of #SaltBae
Have you recently been seeing photos of random people sprinkling salt on their dishes in a ridiculously flamboyant way? Do any of these photos happen to include #SaltBae in the caption? Are you as confused as I am? Okay, great, let’s dive in.
After working with local restaurants and catering teams for over a year now, I can confidently say that I know my fair share of chefs. Some are goofy and lighthearted, others are extremely serious, but the best part of my job is that none of them are like Nusret Gökçe. This guy, let me tell you, is a character all his own. At first glance, he just looks like a narcissistic butcher from Turkey, but his flamboyant seasoning style (paired with obnoxious good looks) has caught the attention of the omniscient internet folk, and they have inevitably managed to make him and his technique virally known as #SaltBae.
If, for some reason, you’d like to see this seasoning superstar in action, 32-year-old #SaltBae currently has six restaurants across Turkey and three restaurants in the UAE, all bearing his name (Nusr-Et). I personally felt #SaltBae’d out after just browsing a few, but the internet is full of GIFs, memes, videos and articles for your perusal and entertainment, so have at it!
