This hot chef is the internet's new obsession

If you've been on Twitter in the past week, your timeline has likely been cluttered with "Salt Bae" videos. But whom, you may ask, is Salt Bae?

Salt Bae is the nickname for chef Nusret Gökçe. He often salts and cures meats, and has a penchant for posting sensual videos of his work on social media:

Gökçe has been sharing videos on his Instagram account for the past year, but the internet as a whole caught on last week. He's now been immortalized in the aptly named #SaltBae meme. His videos don't only show his talent, but his passion for cooking:

The chef owns a restaurant called Nusr-Et in Turkey, and has nine children. He always makes time, though, to show off his skills.
