Brooklyn Beckham snubs traditions and cooks Brit fish and chips for Thanksgiving dinner

Brooklyn Beckham ripped up the unspoken rule book as he prepared a proper British tradition for his Thanksgiving Day dinner with wife Nicola Peltz.

The aspiring chef and son of Victoria and David Beckham, 23, treated his wife to the hometown dish as the couple's pal Selena Gomez joined the party.

Nicola's brother Bradley also joined in the celebrations as the group clearly snubbed the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, opting for the battered treat instead.

Brooklyn, of course, took charge of the kitchen and could be seen in a sweet video clip shared to Instagram, preparing the popular seaside British cuisine.

Instead of Turkey, the former pro footballer's son began beating eggs to make batter for his dish as he appeared in good spirits settling into family life across the pond.

Taking time out from the kitchen, Brooklyn penned a sweet tribute to his wife on Instagram, writing: "Today I am so thankful for my absolutely gorgeous wife."

"Love you baby. Thank you for everything you do x you’re the best," he added.

His rogue dinner decision could be a hint at Brooklyn's previous plans to open a 'British-style restaurant' in Los Angeles – where they could serve cod and chips.

After revealing that his love for cooking sparked during lockdown and that his speciality was bangers and mash, Brooklyn detailed his plans in an interview with Vogue in September.

Sitting alongside Nicola, he said: "I would love to have my own restaurant at some point. I am thinking a real British Pub in LA.

"I haven’t found anything that really reminds me of my favourite pubs in London."

"I really fell in love with cooking in quarantine. My favourite dish to cook is bangers and mash. My favourite ingredient is thyme," he added.

Brooklyn, who previously tried his hand at professional photography, launched an online culinary series called Cookin' With Brooklyn in December last year.

However, Brooklyn is frequently-ridiculed for his "basic" cooking skills. Critics claimed that "he is to cooking what Posh Spice was to singing".

One insider has claimed that each episode of the eight-minute online show costs $100,000 to make and there's a huge crew involved.

The source said: "It's unheard of. It's the sort of crewing you would expect on a big TV show."

In one video Brooklyn struggled to fry fish and was also overheard asking how to know whether a hash brown is correctly cooked.
