About Nusret (SaltBae) Gökçe

If you somehow haven’t heard, chef Nusret Gökçe—better known as Salt Bae—won the internet in 2017. Perhaps you’re not one 16M+ people who viewed his “Ottoman Steak” Instagram post, but you may have seen football players (in both Europe and the US) striking Nusret’s salt pinching pose after scoring, or a shirtless Justin Bieber going viral doing the same. With world-renowned steakhouses catering to celebrities from Jay-Z to @djkhaled (and a NYC location opening soon), it’s easy to imagine how he accumulated nearly 10M followers on Instagram. Not only does Nusret create some of the web’s most legendary cooking videos, he is a ridiculous athlete and stylish dresser. He frequently posts videos of his workout routine, his soccer skills, and dapper selfies. Salt Bae truly is King of the Meats.
