David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay are known to be great pals, since the pair became close after relocations to the US, and now it’s been reported that the former LA Galaxy star will be cooking for the renowned (and fussy) chef.
Gordon, who makes a living by critiquing other people’s food, is apparently going to be the guest at the Beckham’s home in Hertfordshire this year, where David will be hitting the kitchen and cooking up a feast for the family.

The Daily Star claims that the father-of-four hasn’t only got skills on the pitch, but also in the kitchen, as he’ll be making a three-course festive delight – and we’re not talking turkey twizzlers and a few pigs in blankets – apparently, he’ll be cooking a turkey with all of the trimmings.
''Most people would run a mile rather than have Gordon at their table but David is determined to give it his best shot,” a source told the British newspaper.
''He's been taking cookery lessons and finally feels ready to whip up a lavish spread.''

This year, the Beckhams will be entertaining 12 people with Gordon, his wife Tana and their four children as well as Beckham’s brood.
''He knows Christmas Day is a big deal, so is naturally a bit anxious. But he's raring to go,” the source added. ''Gordon's told him organisation and preparation are the keys to success. Victoria has even agreed to lend a hand.''
According to the report, this festive feast will take place at the couple’s Hertfordshire home, despite recent reports that Victoria has been spotted house-hunting in London for a new base.
