Gordon Ramsay, the Original Salt Bae

This Video May Prove Gordon Ramsay Is Actually the Original Salt Bae

A man truly before his time

The Salt Bae meme has been such an explosion that the Turkish chef is opening a restaurant in NYC. However, one Redditor claims Gordon Ramsay is the original Salt Bae and this video with Conan (from 2011) proves it. Chef Ramsay uses the iconic technique that sort of resembles throwing a basketball to which Conan brilliantly exaggerates. The truth is, almost every cook is taught to season from afar (at least a few feet) so the salt granules will evenly disperse on the food. So maybe, the OG Salt Bae is actually Escoffier?
