Thank you so much for participating in this.
When left to your own devices what do you choose to eat?
Also in answering another eGulletaire's question you invoked both Marcella Hazan and your Mother ... a righteous combination ... what characterizes the cooking of Bolton?

Partially it depends on how one feels upon waking, there can be some particular thing on your mind that has to be pursued.
Then there's picking from the kids tea...partial to a fish finger or fish cake...there's something irresistible about the childrens tea!
Or, the exciment of creating something of a delicious nature from whatever happens to be in the kitchen at home...
...and Chinatown is very nearby.
What characterizes the cuisine of Bolton? Well, by Bolton one means the local food culture of Lancashire, still and area that retains an indigenous and recognisable food culture (Lancashire cheese, Hotpot, Blood pudding, tripe..the list goes on) which is unusual in an age of centralisation of politics and gastronomy.
