David Beckham, the English former professional football player and current president of Inter Miami CF and co-owner of Salford City, recently disclosed that his wife, Victoria, has been consuming the same meal for a staggering twenty-five years.
During his appearance on the River Café Table 4 Podcast, Beckham revealed that Victoria Beckham’s diet solely consists of grilled fish, steamed vegetables, and a strong aversion to culinary experimentation.
“I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to try it. 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, and steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that,” he said.
According to David Beckham, his wife only deviated from her usual meal when she was pregnant with their daughter.
He expressed his fondness for staying home and indulging in culinary experimentation within the confines of his kitchen.
“Pretty recently 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. I literally had two most amazing cuts of meat. One was a T-bone and I had some English wagyu,” he said.
David added: “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.nI 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.”
During a podcast interview, Victoria revealed her aversion to oily food and her preference for cooking meals without butter or sauces.
She said: “To most restaurants, I’m probably their worst nightmare. I love some steamed vegetables, some balsamic vinegar, and then to season myself. I like things to be cooked in a very simple way. I don’t like oil or butter or sauces. This is where I sound even more boring in the food department.”
In addition, the 48-year-old mentioned her go-to comfort food: a simple piece of salted whole-grain toast.
“I like whole grain toast with salt on it. It’s that carbohydrate that makes you feel comforted, and I love salt. I don’t like fancy cakes; on my birthday every year, I have a piece of fruit cake and call it a day,” she added.
