Brooklyn Beckham lands on cooking show after being mocked for sandwich tutorial


Brooklyn Beckham wants to be a chef so badly that he made it into a TV series.

The 22-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham has teamed up with Facebook Messenger to make eight episodes which will be streamed through their Watch Together service.

Cookin’ With Brooklyn will follow the young star as he meets some of the world’s top chefs, including Nobu Matsuhisa, famous for his celebrity-favorite Nobu restaurants.

Inspired by her encounters, Brooklyn will then recreate dishes for her friends and family to try.

His fiancée Nicola Peltz will appear in a segment called Date Night With Nicola, while Brooklyn’s little brothers Romeo and Cruz will also appear on the show.

In a trailer to promote the first episode, which drops today, Brooklyn is seen chopping cilantro followed by a close-up of his arm tattoos.

Speaking to the camera, he said: “My name is Brooklyn Beckham and I love to cook.

“I’m not a chef yet. This is the start of my culinary journey. I love cooking for the people I love and enjoy spending time with.

“I’m going to work on my a**e and see where I go.”

At the end of the 37-second clip, he adds, “I got goosebumps about this, but I’m so excited.”

In a recent interview with US VogueBrooklyn – who previously worked as a model and photographer – said he started cooking during the lockdown.

“Quarantine hit and I was cooking every day, just having fun. Nicola started filming me and I started posting it, and people started to really like it.

“Then I was like, you know what, I can actually do something with this. I’ve never enjoyed doing something like this so much.”

Explaining why he enjoys cooking so much, Brooklyn said he finds it “really therapeutic and calming”.

He shared one of his favorite things to do is Italian food, especially fresh pasta from scratch.

Before making the new series, Brooklyn mocked for appearing on the Today show in America to make an “English breakfast sandwich”.

The dish — a bacon, sausage and egg sandwich — wasn’t even cooked live on the show, just put together by Brooklyn for the short segment.

He even claimed that the “recipe” had been in his family for generations and that he learned how to make breakfast from his great-grandmother.

Fans were quick to criticize her cooking skills, with one saying, “Brooklyn Beckham went on TV to show off her cooking skills and made…a breakfast sandwich. I finished!”
