David Beckham has taken a liking to an Italian delicacy called "little bum" - which is made from pig's bottoms
David Beckham likes eating "little bum".
The soccer superstar, who is currently playing for Italian team AC Milan, reportedly has a huge appetite for Culatello - which translates as "little bum" - an Italian delicacy made out of pig's rears.
David - who has been in the European country since January without wife Victoria - was first given the food by his club's former manager Carlo Ancelotti, and the pair have been spotted eating it on a number of occasions.
A source said: "David can't get enough of this fine delicacy. It's got a much lighter and less meaty taste than most other prosciuttos. He's dying to get Victoria to try some."
Culatello is a refined type of prosciutto - the Italian word for ham - made from heavier pigs and cut to a fraction of the thickness of normal prosciutto and aged. It is most commonly served as a starter with melon or figs.
Victoria, 35, may soon be able to try the delicacy herself, as she is set to move to from Los Angeles to Italy with the couple's three sons - Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, six, and four-year-old Cruz - to join 34-year-old David.
A source said: "Victoria loves America but all the flying back and forward is starting to take its toll, and being apart from David has been really hard for them both.
"Victoria hated the idea of moving to Milan at first, but she's warmed to it. Plus, she doesn't want David to be away from her and the kids."
