Cape Town - The first man to capture the collective internet's attention in 2017 is Turkish butcher and restaurateur Nusret Gökçe.

The sexy man has been dubbed 'Salt Bae' by social media users around the world because of a video of him cutting up a large piece of meat and salting it in a way that can be described as very...passionate.
