Britain’s most trusted food expert has delivered a call to action for self-awareness and confidence in the 21st Century in her new book.
We know science is awesome, as are its achievements. Yet so far scientists have managed to sidestep the most awesome reality of all, the true nature of human life, the source of their own genius. How is it that in the overwhelming immensity of the cosmos, on microscopic earth, human beings exist? We have not yet looked reality in the face and perceived the nobility and grandeur of who we are, each of us having a responsibility in the universe and being part of a vast and continuing process, which can only emerge from the shadows and darkest corners of our thought when we step aside away from all the noise. You Matter: The Human Solution encourages people to think more deeply about the phenomenon of existence, what it means to be a unique human person, and how in unity with one another we can build a future in these uncertain times.
Delia is Britain’s best-loved and most trusted cookery writer and football club owner. Delia has worked with food for over fifty years, writing columns and books and broadcasting culinary science from the ground up in a practical, accessible and straightforward style. She was appointed Companion of Honour in 2017 for her contribution to cooking and cookery education.
Our guest interviewer for the evening is historian and biographer Midge Gillies. We’re delighted to welcome both her and Delia to Ely for what promises to be a stimulating and thought-provoking evening.
