In the early 1980s, inspired by his grandparents’ wholesome cooking and Keith Floyd’s onscreen flair for French cuisine, a young Sean Wilson embarked on a gastronomical tour of France that kindled a lifelong love affair for food cultures from around the world.
Soon after, in 1985, he landed the life-changing role of Martin Platt in Coronation Street as part of an influx of new characters to update the show for a modern audience. He played the role to acclaim for over twenty years in a television phenomenon that often attracted twenty million viewers.
Since treading Corrie’s cobbles for the last time, Sean has continued to pursue his passion for food. He has worked in Michelin-starred restaurants and has presented his very own Channel 5 cookery show, Great Northern Cookbook. A connoisseur of cheese and a champion of local ingredients, he runs his own artisan cheese company and produces his handmade, multi-award-winning Lancashire cheeses in the beautiful surroundings of the Forest of Bowland.
From the nation’s favourite soap to the nation’s favourite cheese, in Cheddar Gorged Sean hopes to inspire you with his Cheddar-themed recipes and the centuries-old culture of this world-famous cheese.
