They say variety is the spice of life, but it seems that doesn’t apply to Victoria Beckham, according to her husband, David.
While many of us might have the same breakfast every morning, Posh Spice has apparently stuck to the exact same dinner for the past 25 years.
David Beckham opened up about his wife’s unwavering culinary routine, expressing his desire for her to break free from the monotony and try something new.
The couple, who have been married since 1997, seem to have reached an impasse when it comes to Victoria’s fixation on this staple meal.
Despite his hopes for change, Victoria has remained steadfast in her commitment to consuming the same dinner night after night, much to the frustration of her food-loving partner.
During an appearance on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast last year, the former footballer expressed his enthusiasm for exploring different foods—an experience his wife has yet to embrace.
Beckham shared, “I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to try it.”
He then pointedly revealed, “Since I met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that.”
He reminisced about a special moment during Victoria’s pregnancy with their daughter Harper, when she actually shared a dish from his plate.
Beckham cherished the memory, stating, “It was one of my favorite evenings. I can’t remember what it was, but I know she hasn’t eaten it since.”
Despite their divergent culinary preferences, Beckham hasn’t let this hinder his own passion for cooking.
Even during times of illness, food remains his escape. He recounted preparing meals during a period of self-isolation after a trip to Italy.
He said, “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.”
Beckham then described indulging in two incredible cuts of meat, a T-bone steak and some English wagyu beef, and treating himself to a glass of exquisite red wine while looking forward to watching football on his own. He set up the barbecue, enjoying the solitude and relishing in the experience of getting everything just right.
“There’s nothing better than when you have time to get everything right,” he emphasized. “I had a nice tomato and shallot salad, the meat, and a glass of wine. It was the most amazing meal that I had for a long time. Those are my most amazing afternoons and evenings.”
