This event has been and gone.
Join BBC broadcaster Cerys Matthews, as she takes us around the world, celebrating her love of food and music.
With a childhood spent foraging and learning to make flapjacks and nettle soup, followed by a life of touring as a musician around the world and delighting in the delicious local delicacies discovered along the way, a love for food and cooking has always been central to Cerys Matthews’ life. And now, to mark the publication of her glorious new book, Where the Wild Cooks Go, she is bringing her culinary learnings from around the globe to Salford.
Cerys will be sharing the flavours, ingredients, cocktails and tunes that have inspired her over a lifetime of cooking and travelling. She will indulge us with some poetry readings and a sprinkling of singing, playing a few of her favourite songs from the countries that she has visited.
Cerys Matthews first achieved fame as lead singer of the group Catatonia. She had an equally successful parallel solo career duetting with Tom Jones on the perennial classic Baby It's Cold Outside and with Space on The Ballad of Tom Jones, plus three critically acclaimed solo albums Cockahoop, Never Said Goodbye and Don't Look Down. Nowadays you're more likely to find her hosting radio shows on both BBC 6Music (Sunday mornings) and BBC Radio 2 (Monday evenings).
