David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay are reportedly teaming up for another collaboration.

Rumor has it that David Beckham is working on another concept with British chef Gordon Ramsay, as The Sun and Mirror both report that Beckham wants to open a chain of "pies and mash" cafés.

Business wise, this makes perfect sense, seeing as the Beckham and Ramsay names are definitely draws; their joint project Union Street Cafe received 1,200 reservations in the first 30 minutes last Wednesday.

According to an unnamed source, "[Beckham is] a great cook and has learned how to do French and Italian over the years but his favorite is British. He loves a pie," the Mirror reports. According to the Independent, the duo registered the name "PM (Pie and Mash) Restaurant" with the Intellectual Property Office in 2010. Now the pair is reportedly scouting locations, according to the Mirror.

More unnamed "friends of David" told the Independent that Beckham is looking to launch the chain in London, then expand it worldwide. "David and Gordon agree there's a gap in the market and they want to bring it to the rest of the world," the Independent reports. Perhaps that'll be that Vegas concept they denied earlier this year?
