A former soap star turned award-winning cheesemaker is set to give a talk on Lancashire recipes in Preston.

Sean Wilson, who played Coronation Street’s Martin Platt for 21 years, will be talking about traditional northern dishes and signing copies of his new book, The Great Northern Cookbook, at the Museum of Lancashire.

The event is free and will run from 1pm until 4pm on Sunday.

The Great Northern Cookbook contains more than 90 recipes including soups, stews, pies, and hotpots.

It accompanies the current Channel 5 series of the same name, in which Sean takes viewers on a guided tour of the region’s culinary highlights.

Sean said: “This journey has given me the exciting opportunity to bring my cooking life full circle and to introduce people to the very best recipes from the north of England.”

Charlotte Steels, Lancashire County Council’s manager at the MOL, said: “We’re all looking forward to welcoming Sean to the museum.”

The event will also include a small marketplace where people can buy goods.
