Salt Bae is the chef you need to know! Even if you don’t actually eat his food, Nusret Gökçe, also known as Salt Bae, has made a name for himself on social media. Salt Bae’s video of how he dashes his prime cut meats with seasoning went viral as he let salt run down his forearm and onto the freshly cooked and cut meat. He has instantly turned into a popular meme where people are recreating the “salting” in many different ways to entertain their followers of social media.
Salt Bae is normally found sporting a low ponytail, a clean cut goatee, a see-through white tee, a black vest, round sunglasses, chef pants, a black watch, and he is almost always salting some kind of prime cut meat. This chef is known for more than his delicious meals—he is the meat-salting master!
Salt Bae is the social media sensation and meat monger of the chef world. Salt Bae’s real name is Nusret Gökçe. He is a Turkish chef and restaurant owner of Nusr-Et Steakhouse restaurants in Turkey and Dubai. Salt Bae became popular on social media when he posted a video of himself slicing a chunk of meat into beautiful pieces. He then got his name by the way he sprinkled salt down his forearm and onto the slices of meat in his video- this is how Salt Bae reached the entire social media world.
Nusret Gökçe is the father of nine children (yes, really), and his food fans travel from all over the world to try his prime cut meats and salty flavors! He is usually found with his hair pulled back in a low ponytail, sporting a fancy goatee, and wearing a (tight) white tee under a black vest. If you are a world-renowned salty chef then you definitely need an outfit that matches your “taste.”
