Brooklyn Beckham’s 8-minute cooking show ‘costs £74,000 an episode and has a crew of 62’
BROOKLYN Beckham’s eight-minute cooking show costs £74,000 per episode.
Cookin’ With Brooklyn sees the aspiring chef, 22, whip up some of his favorite dishes on Facebook Messenger’s Watch Together streaming service.
Dishes include a stacked bagel with hash browns, tortillas and juicy steaks.
His Facebook show is said to have a team of 62 people working on it, including a food producer, five cameramen and nine other producers.
A source told the New York Post, “It’s unheard of. It’s the kind of crew you’d expect on a major TV show.”
The photographer has no formal cooking training, but Gordon Ramsay is a family friend who taught dad David many tricks over the years.
And part of the Brooklyn show sees him receiving lessons from world-renowned chefs like Nobu Matsuhisa – the mastermind behind Japanese restaurant Nobu.
But although he is new to the field, he is committed to perfecting his craft.
He said in a trailer for the series, “My name is Brooklyn Beckham and I love to cook.
“I’m not a chef yet. This is the start of my culinary journey. I love cooking for the people I love and enjoy spending time with.
“I’m going to work my ass off and see where I’m at. I get goosebumps, but I’m so excited.
Last year, Brooklyn appeared on The Today Show in the United States to make a classic breakfast sandwich.
But the segment was criticized by many who claimed it was just punching objects between pieces of bread.
Brooklyn’s idea for his cooking show came from cooking for his fiancée Nicola Peltz.
He said: “I’ve always loved food and obviously when quarantine hit I really started getting into it.
“My fiance [Nicola Peltz] started filming myself and I started posting it and it’s just something I like to do.”
