Brooklyn Beckham defends himself after cork is spotted floating in his food
| Last updated
Brooklyn Beckham has responded after eagle-eyed social media users spotted a wine cork floating in his food.
The 24-year-old aspiring chef, who recently said food was his ‘passion’, shared a snap of himself cooking up a storm in the kitchen while wearing a sling holding one of the smallest pups I’ve ever seen.
In another shot, he could be seen drinking a glass of red wine, while the pooch - a rescue named Peanut - watched on.
Captioning the shots, Beckham wrote: “Daddy day care [heart emoji].”
But some fans were less interested in what he was cooking and more intrigued by the fact that there was a) a cork in his scran and b) a dog in the kitchen very close to where he was cooking.
One wrote: “Erm don't choke on the wine cork.”
Another said: “Are you supposed to cook with the cork in the pot?”
While a third commented: “There’s a cork in your pot …. & dog hair about to join.”
Someone else asked: “Why are you cooking the cork for bro?”
A fourth follower quipped: “Cork-vin chicken?”
However, Beckham - who is the son of footballer David and fashion designer Victoria - revealed there was a legit reason behind the floating cork.
In an update to his Instagram Stories, he shared a screenshot of some text that explained: “More research ensued and we found information that the addition of wine corks added to the cooking liquid ensured a more tender dish.” So that’s his followers told, then.
During a quick Q&A with his followers, Beckham replied to a question asking him if he was a chef, to which he replied: “NOPE X but food is my passion.”
This isn’t the first time poor Becks has taken a roasting over his cooking - earlier this year, he was criticised for sharing an ‘out of touch’ recipe featuring pricy truffle as a main ingredient.
The pasta dish was made with truffle cream sauce, topped off with a heavy serving of fresh truffle shavings.
Accompanying the video Beckham wrote: "In my kitchen no such thing as too much truffle."
But, considering a single truffle can range from being around £20 to literally hundreds, it's no surprise a lot of people won't be trying this recipe for themselves.
Taking to the comments section, one person wrote: "I wish I could afford the idea of 'no such thing as too much truffle'."
"We're in a Costy Livs Crisis Brooklyn," said another, while a third added: "Completely out of touch."
