David Beckham was in Modena recently and stopped by Massimo Bottura’sCasa Maria Luigia, and rather than simply enjoying his meal and posing with Bottura for the obligatory photo, it seems the former footballer got stuck in with some plating as well.
Not only do Bottura and Beckham share a love of football, but they both have a passion for Maserati cars - photos of the former England footballer posing with his Maserati Mc20 at Bottura’s B&B Casa Maria Luigia were all over Italian media.
