At first glance, he's just a dude with a mop of dark hair who co-owns a restaurant in Turkey and happens to be a chef. In fact, Gokce is also a father of nine, and, most importantly, is known to the internet as #SaltBae, because of the serious sensual way he salts his meats.

#SaltBae is a hash-tag trending on Twitter, and it refers to the nickname the internet gifted Gokce because of how much flair he puts into the act of seasoning and stroking the raw pieces of meat he prepares.

Essentially, he just roams around in elegant outfits with his hair on fleek and cuddles and caresses slabs of meat.
