Victoria Beckham has eaten the same meal every day for 25 years, says David

Not such Posh tastebuds!

David and Victoria Beckham have been married for more than 22 years.

And for all of that time, plus some, Posh Spice has had a rather, un-posh palate, according to her hubby.

Former England captain, Beckham, spoke about the couple’s culinary differences on the River Cafe Table 4 Podcast, revealing that while he enjoys the finest of cuisine, his fashion designer wife, has scoffed the same plain meal for a quarter of a century,

“I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to try it,” he explained.

“Unfortunately I’m married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years.

“Since I met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that.”

The 46-year-old said the one time Victoria broke her streak was when she shared something that was “on my plate” while pregnant with Harper, “and it was the most amazing thing”.

“It was one of my favourite evenings. I can’t remember what it was but I know she’s not eaten it since.”

Given Post likes to keep it plain, Goldenballs goes all out in the kitchen when she’s away.

Recently, he told the podcast, he made himself one of the best meals he’s had in ages.

“I was in isolation for five days because I’d just been to Italy so I came back and on one of the last days Victoria’s parents had a party and I couldn’t actually go to it. So everyone was out of the house and I secretly loved it,” he said.

“I literally had two of the most amazing cuts of meat. One was a T-bone and I had some English wagyu, I poured one glass of the most amazing red wine that I treated myself to because I was on my own looking forward to watching the football in the afternoon on my own. So I set the barbecue up.”

He continued: “I think there’s nothing better than when you have time to get everything right.

“I had a nice tomato and shallot salad and the meat and a glass of wine and it was the most amazing meal that I had for a long time. Those are my most amazing afternoons and evenings.

“The wagyu was quite thick and I don’t like to brag but it was cooked to perfection.”

Beckham said he put it on the grill for six or seven minutes either side, seasoning it with salt and pepper.

“I like my meat rare, medium at a push, but more rare and it came out perfect. And it was only me in the house so I ate it all.”

While Beckham’s second-oldest, Romeo, 19, is following in his football boots and made his professional debut in September last year, his oldest, Brooklyn, 22, has swapped his camera for the kitchen of late and even has his own cooking show, Cookin’ with Brooklyn.
