Nottingham’s favourite dish is…

Good old Spaghetti Bolognese.

Closely followed by Pizza, roast dinner, cottage pie and korma/fish pie.

Over 55% of Nottingham parents say they are passionate about cooking and more than 62% spend more than 30 minutes cooking their family evening meal . Great stuff.

On a less positive note over half of Nottingham parents sheepishly admitted sticking to what they know because those dishes were simple and easy to make.

C”mon Nottingham time to be more adventurous!
