Brooklyn Beckham’s Cooking Has Come Under Fire Again For Putting A Wine Cork In His Bolognese

March 30, 2023 / Posted by:

Ok, everybody simmer down. Brooklyn Beckham’s getting roasted again for his questionable culinary skills after he posted a picture of himself in the kitchen holding a puppy in a sling while stirring a pot of what looks like high end dog food with a wine cork floating in it but which I’ve been assured by The Daily Mail is supposed to be Bolognese sauce. But really, what harm has he done? He’s just a 24-year-old kid making himself a pot of sketti as an excuse to open what is probably a $600 bottle of Merlot on a Wednesday afternoon. Lord knows he’s not cooking for anybody but himself and the puppy. You think his wife Nicola Peltz Beckham would deign to put anything that comes out of that kitchen in her mouth? Ha! Let my boy enjoy his hairy sketti in peace!

The offending photo is captioned “Daddy day care” and in the next slide, puppy still in place, Brooklyn sips wine from a fancy glass while looking at his phone. Apparently, folks were all up in his business and questioned not only his kitchen hygiene but also his choice to include the wine cork in his sauce. Never one to take an insult to his cooking prowess lightly, Brooklyn posted a response in his stories, claiming the addition of the cork creates a “more tender dish.” Which is apparently untrue, but it does sound like something a wizened old Italian nana would say, so again, I ask, what harm has he done? According to the Daily Mail:

The eldest son of Victoria and David Beckham, 24, who has developed a passion for food, took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off his questionable culinary skills.

He filmed himself trying to cook up a spaghetti Bolognese but he came under fire when fans spotted a wine cork bizarrely sitting in his simmering sauce.

In his latest post, Brooklyn defended his technique as he shared a sentence from an article which read: ‘More research ensued and we found information that the addition of wine corks added to the cooking liquid ensured a more tender dish.’

However, the Naples Daily News article adds that most chefs use the niche method for octopus dishes, while pointing out that experts have argued about the technique.

Though there is much debate around whether the cork method works successfully, it is a niche technique sometimes used for octopus and squid – not for other sauces.

Sure, it’s pretentious, but again, sketti boy is the only victim here. And maybe Peanut. That’s the puppy’s name. Peanut! It’s nice to see that Nicola is letting him get a head start on that family he wants so badly. Here’s the post that caused all the fuss.

I love Peanut and think if Brooklyn wants to take this cooking thing seriously, he needs to pitch a show called Stirring it up with Sketti and Peanut. I would watch that!
