The move that started it all...

Salt Bae, the culinary mastermind behind Nusr Et and the creative force behind this year’s infamous "salt" meme, is back. And, this time he’s cooking and dancing a lot to Luis Fonsi’s hit-song “Despacito”.

We’re well aware that dancing to the biggest song of the year is no big deal, it’s not so much his moves that we’re admiring but his ability to multi-task – we struggle with just cooking...

If you’re unfamiliar with Salt Bae, here’s what you need to know…

Nusret Gökçe shot to international fame earlier this year after an image of him sprinkling salt on steak went viral.

Before becoming an internet sensation (the simply yet effective stunt earned him an impressive 8.5million Instagram followers) , the 34-year-old was mainly known for his successful chain of Turkish steakhouses, Nusr Et.

Gökçe has a serious royal and A-list following. Leonardo DiCaprio caused something of an online frenzy when he was spotted dining at Gökçe’s restaurant in Dubai while His Highness King Abdullah II Bin Al Hussein of Jordan hosted Bae at his home in Jordan earlier this year.
