It is not mandatory to be ‘Salt Bae 'for treat meat like a lover. He woos her, massages her, seduces her, and the people of the web love him madly. He is Nusret Gökçe and is the co-owner of Nurs-Et, a renowned steakhouse chain famous in Turkey and also in Dubai. But now, thanks to his video Instangram, has become a viral phenomenon all over the world. To make it magical, in addition to his spectacular skill with the knife, is his bold technique for salting the meat. The statuesque pose, the grim expression, the gaze rigorously hidden by glasses with a dark lens, and the panache with which he makes a cascade of coarse salt fall on the steaming meat speak for him. Practically salt the meat as if the salt were stardust. They say he intends to open a chain restaurant in Milan, but at the moment we don't miss it, as starred chefs like specialized restaurants have never been working very well on meat. You can see it in our gallery.

Mauro Colagreco del Mirazur in Menton, he created theComplete Hamburguesa as signature dish of the new chain of hamburgers CARNE in Argentina. Artisan bread, organic tomato, onion and lettuce, meat from grazing farms, cheddar cheese produced by hand, egg from hens raised outdoors on the farm, bacon from pig farms free of antibiotics and growth hormones, pickled gherkins preserved on the day of the harvest: nine luxury ingredients. "I wanted to redefine the concept of luxury, applying the principles of haute cuisine to an accessible and widely consumed food," says Colagreco. The talent par excellence of Italian cuisine, Riccardo Camanini – chef-patron of the starry Lido 84 in Gardone Riviera – reopened the restaurant proposing the ingenious Grilled rib steak in broth, with the cut of meat (the Podolica cow, Slow Food presidium) that comes from the famous butchery of Michele Varvara in Altamura. «I appreciated its flavor given by the richness in mineral salts and the good infiltrations of fat, which make it very succulent when cooked on the grill. We serve it in the center of a cold infusion of chives, bay leaves and rue leaves. " Pure poetry, in the Camanini style.

Veal in three services

If we talk about meat poetry, it is impossible not to take a look at what they are doing in Arzignano i very good brothers Damini – Giorgio in the kitchen, Gian Piero in the dining room and in the cellar – who manage the only starred restaurant in Europe, based on carnivorous cuisine. The novelty in the rich menu of Damini Macelleria & Affini is Calf Up and Down, a 'three services' dedicated to one of the delicate meats par excellence. «The fried head is first steamed in a pepper broth and then served with wasabi mayonnaise and sweet and sour white asparagus. The tail is prepared stewed and becomes the filling of a tigella, seasoned with green sauce. The carré is breaded with water emulsified hazelnuts and rosemary, subsequently cooked in the bbq and served with hazelnut powder. It is a dish that represents me because it uses various parts of the veal, in part not very valued ", explains Giorgio Damini.
