Next stop Preston

Next stop Preston to cook in a private home, so these two characters get to visually represent the city (big fan – I’ve posed for a photo on this bench trying to match Wallace – a bit like posing in Morecambe by the Eric Morecambe statue). The films poke fun at the Yorkshire – Lancashire border, which my home town sits on in the middle of the Pennines, but thankfully we don’t currently need passports and food checks to cross over. Wallace and Gromit are credited with saving Wensleydale cheese and kick-starting a bit of a British cheese renaissance – last week (also in Lancashire) I served up a cheese board that featured local cheeses from Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria and thankfully, unlike these two, didn’t forget the crackers.
