It is not a secret for anyone in Venezuela that many of its inhabitants are suffering the consequences of what is considered the worst economic crisis that the country has gone through. Among the Venezuelans is the issue of food because, in these last six years, the Venezuelans have suffered a considerable decline in their daily diet, where cases of malnutrition and death due to starvation have increased in the last three years.
However, this seems to be something that does not go through the head of the national president because on September 17, a series of videos were leaked to social networks where he, his wife, and their work team could be seen enjoying a luxurious dinner in one of the most expensive restaurants in Istanbul, which belongs to the famous chef Nusret Gökçe, better known as “Salt Bae” because of its peculiar way of spicing up food, and if that was not enough, it was the same who attended them.
The cost of this dinner of excess is incalculable because not only were they enjoying excellent lamb served by the owner of this restaurant, who is known worldwide, but also because at all times Nicolás Maduro and company were escorted by the Turkish military enjoying a show of exclusivity and waste.
On the other hand, this brought consequences for the famous chef because he was harshly criticized for offering such an exclusive show to who is considered a dictator and while the president of Venezuela enjoys his kitchen, there are hundreds of Venezuelans who are going to sleep without dinner and even without having eaten throughout the day. That is why the chef “Salt Bae” deleted the videos and photos that went up with Nicolás Maduro and company but has not spoken about it for the moment.
