Posted By: Staff

London, Jan 19 (ANI): Soccer ace David Beckham has revealed that he desperately wants to learn to how to make pasta.

Beckham - who rejoined Italian side AC Milan this month - has enrolled for a culinary school in the city.

The footballer had his first three-hour lesson of the professional cookery course this week and is keen to test his new skills on top chef Gordon Ramsay.

"I have joined a culinary school and I'm on a course that entails 120 hours of lessons and cooking," the Mirror quoted Beckham as saying.

"It's something that I have always wanted to do. I have always loved cooking. Now I'm Italy, I want to learn how to make amazing pasta.

"It's gone from a small ambition of wanting to learn how to make pasta to the extreme of doing this course that professional chefs do. It's something I'm passionate about.

"I did the first three hours the other day. I learned how to make fresh pasta, ragu, carbonara, fresh tomato sauce and I am doing a risotto in a few days.

"I don't know about cooking for a group of people at a dinner party quite yet but you never know. I'm really pleased about it.

I'd love to cook for Gordon. One day, I will definitely cook for him," he added. (ANI)
