David Beckham shows off Christmas cooking skills

David Beckham has been cooking up a storm ready for Christmas.

The retired football legend has been busy preparing a beef stew for his wife Victoria Beckham and their four children – Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and five-year-old daughter Harper – from a special family recipe perfected by his mother Sandra.

David shared a video taken by Brooklyn on his Instagram account of him cooking up the creation, which has a whole can of Guinness poured in to make up the sauce.

In the clip, the ex-England captain can be heard asking his oldest son: “What are we making, Brooklyn?”

He responds: “Beef stew.”

The Manchester United star then adds: “With Guinness.”

David, 41, accompanied the video with the caption: “Preparing the beef stew just like mum used to make it … Not as tasty but not far away … Plus dumplings mmmmmm oh and a little Guinness (sic)”

The hunk also tagged his close friend, TV chef Gordon Ramsay, into the post so he could see his pal’s culinary skills.

David and Victoria will be spending some of the festive period with Gordon, 50, and his wife Tana – who also have four children, Megan, Matilda and twins Jack and Holly, together – as they are all going to five-star luxury resort Amilla Fushi in the Maldives to see in the new year.

Victoria’s Spice Girls bandmate Mel C will also be joining them and providing the entertainment for the two families on New Year’s Eve.
