Brooklyn Beckham has landed himself in the middle of a furious foodie frenzy after baffling Today show viewers by appearing on a live cooking segment – during which he simply ‘assembled a sandwich’.
The 22-year-old photographer appeared on the US programme on Wednesday morning, when he shared his ‘recipe’ for an English breakfast sandwich, a dish that he ‘learned from his great-grandma’.
Explaining that he developed a passion for cooking while in lockdown, during which he began posting videos of himself whipping up different dishes on Instagram, the eldest child of David and Victoria Beckham then ran hosts Hoda Kotb and Carson Daly through his sandwich-making process.
But while the Today hosts were quick to praise his simple creation, viewers were up in arms over the decision to feature such an easy-to-assemble dish, with many branding the clip ’embarrassing’ and ‘painful’.
