Is Brooklyn Beckham trying to be Salt Bae?

Is Brooklyn Beckham trying to be Salt Bae? Aspiring ‘chef’ debuts same black gloves in cookery video as he jumps on TikTok trend… months after his famous family all mimicked the restaurateur

Brooklyn Beckham has appeared to channel viral TikTok sensation Salt Bae by sporting a pair of black gloves in his latest cookery tutorial.

The aspiring chef, 23, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a video showing how to make a traditional Sunday dinner ‘Michelin style’.

He was joined by former Michelin cook Kevin Lee to present the tutorial, which saw Brooklyn get a roasting as fans claimed the beef was too raw when it was plated up.

In the video, Brooklyn sported a grey hoodie with the sleeves rolled up and initially went gloveless as he started preparing the meal.

But he then appeared to channel the Turkish butcher – who shot to prominence for his skillful meat-cutting – as he put on a pair of black gloves for hygiene reasons to cover the beef in a thick layer of butter.

Brooklyn and the rest of the Beckhams have proven themselves to be long time fans of the internet sensation, as they have been seen doing their best impressions of the restaurateur and visiting his eatery in the past.

Black gloves in cooking videos have become a viral TikTok trend and though it is not clear who originally started the craze, it is thought to be Salt Bae – whose real name is Nusret Gökçe.

The chef was forced to start wearing gloves to cook to avoid a health code violation at his New York restaurant back in 2018, according to GQ.

Article 81 of New York City’s Health Code prohibits bare hand contact with food that’s ready to eat, prompting him to introduce the new measure.

Salt Bae then chose to cook wearing black gloves, which have now become an iconic look synonymous with the star, with more video chefs also starting to choose the same colour gloves.

And Brooklyn has been the latest to adopt the recognisable look, after proving himself to be a longtime fan with his amusing impression of the talented chef.

Sprinkle: Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe, is known for his iconic salt sprinkle in his TikTok cooking videos

Back in January 2018, Brooklyn met Salt Bae while dining at his NYC restaurant NUSR-ET and was seen mimicking the chef’s iconic salt sprinkling move.

Brooklyn, who was a photography student at the time, showed himself attempting to pull off his well-recognised salt sprinkle, before panning the camera to show Salt Bae himself by his side.

Brooklyn seemed enticed by the expert skill as he turned to the camera in disbelief while simply stating: ‘Amazing!’

Huge fans: And his admiration for the cookery expert seems to run in the family, as David had also attempted the iconic sprinkle just days earlier

And his admiration for the cookery expert seems to run in the family, as David had also attempted the iconic sprinkle just days earlier.

While dining with his chef pal Gordon Ramsay and his family, David took some inspiration from chef-turned-viral-sensation Salt Bae as he was seen doing the infamous elbow scattering.

Captioning the video ‘Nice Try’, the sporting star gave his best attempt at the infamous sprinkle, but it turned out more of a mess than success, missing the base completely with slices of banana hitting the counter top.

Meeting: Just weeks after his impression, David then had the pleasure of taking his wife Victoria and kids Romeo, Cruz and Harper to Salt Bae’s eatery NUSR-ET

Documenting the meal on Instagram, he was seen being fed steak from a perilously sharp knife by Salt Bae himself, before his younger brood also had a go at the Instagram sensation’s famous salt sprinkling technique.

In a clip shared to Salt Bae’s own page, David’s sons Romeo and Cruz alongside daughter Harper were seen giving his famous culinary move a try as they proved their longtime adoration for the star.
