What do you get when you mix one of the world’s best food photographers, a hugely well respected music journalist & a top rock & roll chef to the stars, add a heaped spoonful of Heston Blumenthal then stir in a large amount of the world’s best musicians?

You get LOVE MUSIC LOVE FOOD ….

….A journey with a charitable aim started at the Lowry Hotel, Salford, & ended with Juliette Lewis wrapping her legs round a Gibson guitar dripping with chocolate in Miahaus studios, Los Angeles, LoveMusicLoveFood is the lovechild of award winning photographer Patrice de Villiers.

Inspired by an aftershow conversation in the Lowry Hotel bar with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy who divulged that he makes his own pasta, the kernal of the idea was borne, to combine the epicurean delights of food & music in a collection of sumptuous, surreal images portraying the great, good, up & coming of the music industry with the food they love, or as in Noel Gallagher’s case, beverage, with his beloved Yorkshire tea.

To make that idea a reality , Patrice enlisted the help of many talented individuals , generous companies and with the goodwill of over 60 artists and their mgmt/PR teams, LoveMusicLoveFood now exists 2 years later in exhibition and bookform. The book includes interviews by celebrated music journalist Andrew Harrison, recipes by rock & roll caterer Sarah Muir and a foreword by Brit superstar chef, Heston Blumenthal. And the force behind it all comes from her desire to produce something extraordinary for an extraordinary charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.

Teenage Cancer Trust is a UK based charity & many of it’s core supporters can be seen in LoveMusicLoveFood : The Rockstar Cookbook, from it’s most vocal patron, Roger Daltrey, to Paul Weller, Kasabian, Kelly Jones , Brian May Siouxsie Sioux, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah even Sir Cliff Richard features as well as US stars such as Brandon Flowers and the list goes on.

What Teenage Cancer Trust do:

Every day in the UK, six young people are told they have cancer. Usually placed on a children’s ward or with elderly patients, young people often feel extremely isolated whilst being treated for cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust believes young people shouldn’t stop being teenagers just because they have cancer. So the charity builds units in NHS hospitals that offer young people specialist care, bringing them together so they can support each other in an environment suited to their needs. As well as specialist units, Teenage Cancer Trust also funds a number of services all with the same goal – to help young people fight cancer. These include clinical and research staff, an education programme for schools, family support networks and an annual conference for young cancer patients.
