Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe became a meme sensation in January after a video of his flamboyant salt sprinkling went viral on social media. The trained butcher inspired scores of memes and parodies, many of them used to describe ways we add flourish to our everyday lives. The chef owned two steakhouses (one in Turkey and one in Abu-Dhabi) at the time of the meme's explosion. He's since opened a location in Miami for anyone interested in experiencing his graceful seasoning stateside.
