  • Brooklyn Beckham told Insider that his dad David makes the best spaghetti bolognese.

  • Beckham said his dad learned how to make it when they took a pasta class together in Italy.

  • "I would be so excited coming home from school and seeing my dad make spaghetti bolognese," Beckham said.

At the end of the Netflix docuseries "Beckham," David Beckham opens up about his love of cooking. As he discusses his barbecue tent and checks on his roast chicken, a voice interjects.

"Did you put thyme in there as well?" asks Brooklyn Beckham, the soccer star's eldest son.

"Yes chef!" he replies with a laugh.

It's the younger Beckham who's made headlines in recent years for his cooking skills, but the 24-year-old told Insider that his father has taught him a lot in the kitchen.

And Brooklyn Beckham, who sat down with Insider recently to discuss his new partnership with the kitchen-appliance company Typhur, revealed that his dad's best dish is his spaghetti bolognese.

Beckham said his father learned how to make the dish while he was living in Italy to play for AC Milan from 2009 to 2010.

"My dad and I, we took this Italian pasta-making class when my dad lived in Milan," Beckham recalled. "He learned from, obviously, the best place you could learn how to make pasta."

"My dad loves cooking, so he used to cook it all the time when I was a little kid," he added. "I would be so excited coming home from school and seeing my dad make spaghetti bolognese."

Beckham has since taken his dad's recipe and made a few tweaks, which he's working to perfect for his wife Nicola Peltz.

As he continues to pursue his passion for cooking, Beckham said his dad has been a huge source of inspiration.

"Growing up, my dad has always loved being in the kitchen," Beckham said. "And as a very young baby, I was lucky enough to travel with him to different places in the world and try different cuisines. I think my love for cooking and trying different cuisines definitely came from my dad."

When his dad isn't whipping up a great spaghetti bolognese, Beckham said he also makes a delicious Sunday roast — as well as an incredible truffle risotto.

"He actually taught me how to make truffle risotto, which I'm still trying to perfect," Beckham said. "I still need a few more lessons. I don't know what he does to it, but it's just a little bit better than mine."

While Beckham has faced plenty of criticism for his cooking videos, he told Insider he isn't fazed by the haters.

"To be honest, I'm used to the hate," Beckham said. "It doesn't really bother me. Cooking makes me happy. I have more important things to worry about than people saying a little bit of rubbish about me."

Beckham plans to keep improving his skills with the help of Typhur's new line of appliances, which he said has helped Peltz start learning how to cook as well.

"I'm not a professional at all, I'm just starting out," he added. "So I'm just gonna continue doing my videos and see where it takes me."
