Brooklyn Beckham has hit back after he was slammed for having a cork in his pot as he cooked one of his dishes.
His latest effort, spaghetti bolognese, also sparked debate when his baffled followers spotted that a wine cork had been left in the pot.
“Is the cork added flavour?” wondered one confused fan, while another asked: “Why are you cooking the cork for bro?”
However, the star has refused to take it lying down and has shared a snippet of an article on his Instagram Story, which suggests the cork trick is a real technique.
“More research ensued and we found information that the addition of wine corks added to the cooking liquid ensured a more tender dish,” it said.
Beckham, 24, also shared a message telling his followers how he felt about cooking.
A fan asked if he was a chef, and he replied: “Nope, but food is my passion.”
Celeb chef Gordon Ramsay has previously defended Beckham, saying that he "didn't ask for that level of intrusion from having famous parents".
Ramsay, who is a friend of the family, told MailOnline that he was happy that Beckham was pursuing cooking.
“Even as a 12-year-old, whilst playing football, Brooklyn was always excited about food," said the cook and TV star.
"So I'm pleased that he has gone down that road and he's found something he really enjoys doing."
