Brooklyn Beckham is venturing into the cooking industry and has recently launched a new cooking show. And according to reports, costs a staggering $100 000 (± R1.5 million) to produce each eight-minute episode.
An expensive flop for the Beckham’s
The 22-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham latest passion seems to lie with cooking, however, the internet feels that he should maybe stick to modelling and photography.
“Cookin’ With Brooklyn” is available to stream on Watch Together via Facebook Messenger’s streaming service. And according to reports, the show has a whopping team of “62 professionals” to help Brooklyn “demonstrate how to make a sandwich”.
For the eight-minute episode, it’s reported that nine producers, five cameramen and a culinary producer were needed.
“It’s unheard of. It’s the sort of crewing you would expect on a big TV show,” a source told the New York Post.
“Cookin’ with Brooklyn” has one problem – he can’t cook
In one of the episodes, Brooklyn sets out to make a traditional British fish and chips with his own spin on it – sea bream topped with a hash brown and coleslaw into a bagel.
The only problem? Brooklyn does not seem to make or cook a single element of the dish. The only thing he does is spread aioli mayonnaise on the bagel and lay the pre-made ingredients on top.
“He is to cooking what Post was to singing.”
And when it came to the main component of the dish – the fish – Brooklyn had no idea how to batter or fry it. He was also clueless when it came to the hash brown.
“Apparently the guy has to be shown really super basic things and has a ‘cheat sheet’ of expressions from whisk to par-boil, several illustrated with pictures.”
