Celebrity chef Nusret ‘Salt Bae’ Gokce has given his staff a bizarre demonstration on how to wash plates and pans in his restaurant.
The chef, who is known for his exaggerated and highly stylised method of preparing food, made a performance of cleaning his crockery.
The footage, which has been seen by more than 5.6 million people on Instagram, shows Salt Bae cleaning a plate, describing it as ‘like a diamond’.
Wearing his trademark darkened John Lennon shades and white tee shirt, the Turkish celebrity tosses the plate from one hand to the other before showing the results of his work to a dozen members of his staff.
He subtitled the video ‘In business you must know every details… from A to Z, okey? #okey? #saltbae #Saltlife #salt’
In the footage, Salt Bae advises his staff ‘focus, clean all the time’.
At the end of the short video, members of staff give Salt Bae a round of applause.
