Nepo baby Brooklyn Beckham proved that despite his basic cooking skills he still sees himself as a food connoisseur, as he appeared in a video to promote the Michelin Guide app.
The budding but untalented chef, 24, is the star of his widely criticised online series, Cookin’ With Brooklyn, although it has since emerged he was unable to fry a hash brown without assistance.
In the video, Brooklyn bragged that he spends hours scrolling through the Michelin app to find a list of restaurants with their coveted stars that he wants to try when he goes travelling,
But while he is quick to tell his wife Nicola Peltz about the places he’d love to eat, she is more preoccupied with watching makeup tutorials.
In the video, which Brooklyn posted on Instagram, he said: ‘I find restaurants, obviously through the Michelin app that’s on of my favourites. When I travel I’ve been to some cool places.
‘When you have the app on your phone, it gives you the location, how many stars, hours it’s open. When I tell you I’m obsessed with the Michelin app.

Brutal! The budding chef admitted that while he is quick to tell his wife Nicola about the places he’d love to eat, she is more preoccupied with watching makeup tutorials
‘You know we have six dogs, so we’re up till like 2am, but while my wife, while my dogs are fighting or jumping in the bed, my wife is looking at makeup tutorials, and I’m just, I’m literally just like this,’ before holding up his phone to show the app.
Brooklyn then added: ‘I’m just like ”Nic babe we have to go here,” and she’s just like ”shush I’m watching my makeup tutorials.”
Continuing to rave about Michelin’s app, which offers a directory of restaurants alongside their star ratings, Brooklyn added: ‘It literally has everything.’
The son of David and Victoria Beckham has been trying his utmost to launch a cooking career and has fronted his own food show, Cookin’ With Brooklyn series.
He often takes to Instagram to show off his creations in tutorials, but has been repeatedly roasted by fans for his ‘basic’ skills and use of very lavish ingredients.
In another video to promote the Michelin Guide app, Brooklyn shared why he loves cooking and praised chefs for being so ‘hard-working’.
Brooklyn – who recently insisted he is not a professional chef – admitted he admires the dedicated workers for spending ‘every minute’ mastering their craft.
He also went on to speak about why he loves cooking himself, confessing he likes how there’s ‘always something to learn’ in the kitchen.
Funny: He said: ‘I’m just like ”Nic babe we have to go here,” and she’s just like ”shush I’m watching my makeup tutorials”
Cost: Brooklyn is the star of his widely criticised online series, Cookin’ With Brooklyn, although it has since emerged he was unable to fry a hash brown for one eight-minute episode
‘One of the many things I like about chefs is they are so artistic, they are so hard working, and it’s always every day, every minute of every hour trying to master their craft,’ he said.
‘I love cooking because it’s one of the few things that I do that takes my mind off of anything that’s happening.
‘Being in the kitchen making food is endless, you can do anything. There’s always something to learn.’
The aspiring chef also revealed his favourite cuisines are Indian and pub-style food, before sharing an array of Michelin-rated restaurants he enjoys dining at.
Speaking about his top eateries across Los Angeles, Brooklyn told how he enjoys dining at the likes of Pijja Palace, Saffy’s, Hayato and Osteria Mozza.
The former photographer also reflected on working with American chef Nancy Silverton in his social media series, Cookin’ With Brooklyn.
He said of the experience: ‘Nancy Silverton is my favourite chef, I was lucky enough to film with her and she taught me how to do a blueberry tart, which was amazing.’
In recent months Brooklyn has been trying to kickstart his own cooking career with his own series, and even enlisted a 62-person crew at the eye-watering cost of $100,000 to film him making a sandwich.
In one of the eight-minute episodes, he showed his Instagram and Facebook followers how to make a bagel sandwich with a hash brown, coleslaw and fried sea bream.
According to the New York Post, the video had a team of professionals on hand including a ‘culinary producer’ who approves the recipes, five camera operations and nine producers.
Brooklyn has come under fire recently for his frequently-ridiculed cooking skills. Most recently an appearance on the Late Late Show was slammed by several professional chefs who called attention to Brooklyn’s lack of training and expertise.
A source has said of Brooklyn’s overblown crew for his online videos: ‘It’s unheard of. It’s the sort of crewing you would expect on a big TV show.’
The insider added that each episode of the eight-minute online show, costs $100,000 to make.
In the sandwich video, Brooklyn did not actually cook any of the sandwich but simply spread mayonnaise on the bagel and layed the ingredients on top.
He didn’t know how to fry fish and was also heard asking how to know when a hash brown is finished frying.
In the video, he said: ‘I eat half the fish and then I like, mess it all up and put it in two loaves of bread with the fish, vinegar, salt, mushy peas.’
Speaking to the camera, he added: ‘Coleslaw gives sandwiches a different texture, like a crunchy texture.’
The source said: ‘He is to cooking what [his mother] Posh was to singing. Apparently the guy has to be shown really super basic things and has a cheat sheet of expressions from whisk to parboil, several illustrated with pictures.’

Lavish: His latest comments come after Brooklyn has been slammed in the past for his ‘out of touch’ recipes and last week, he whipped up an enormous steak in a ‘sea urchin compound’
Brooklyn’s family are mentioned in each episode with the source claiming ‘everything he does’ is directed by his parents.
His latest comments come after Brooklyn has been slammed in the past for his ‘out of touch’ recipes, and last week, he once again whipped up an enormous steak in a ‘sea urchin compound’.
The wannabe chef seasoned the mammoth piece of meat before slathering potatoes in duck fat as a side dish.
Brooklyn Beckham’s cooking faux pas’
1. Brooklyn was slated by fans for his ‘raw’ meat while whipping up a Sunday dinner.
2. His salad and plain spaghetti left much to be desired in a silent cooking tutorial
3. He hired a film crew for $100,000 to film him making a sandwich
4. He required assistance with frying a hash brown
5. During a cooking segment on The Today Show, viewers poked fun at his humble breakfast sandwich
He then created a sauce for his swanky meal made from the underwater creatures, known for their distinctive spikes.
Sea urchins are a great delicacy in Japanese cuisine, where they are known as ‘uni’ and often used in sushi.
Only a small part of the creature is eaten, the ‘gonads’ or sex organs, which run along the inside of the shell.
Brooklyn plated up his creation and delicately dripped the compound over the meat before tucking in.
He captioned the clip: ‘Bone in NY strip with sea urchin compound butter and duck fat roast potato’s [sic]’.
In January, the budding cook was slammed as ‘out of touch’ as he used pricey ingredient truffle to whip up a tagliatelle in his latest cookery tutorial.
He took to Instagram at the time to share his cookery tutorial video, which saw him make a creamy truffle tagliatelle.
In an accompanying caption, he gushed over his love of truffle, which he used generously to make the dish, writing: ‘In my kitchen no such thing as too much truffle.’
However, he was slammed by his fans as ‘out of touch’ as they blasted him for using luxury ingredient truffle during a cost-of-living crisis.
Brooklyn has largely been cooking for Instagram videos over the past few years as he shares basic tips with his followers on meals such as burgers and sandwiches.
But he admitted to Bustle in a recent interview: ‘I’m not a professional chef – at all.’
‘I’ve never said that. I never would say that. Obviously, my dad [retired footballer David Beckham] knew what he was doing at a very young age. I’ve only been doing cooking for not even three years.’
