What were your food influences when you were growing up and what kind of food did you eat at home or with your family?

When i grew up Dunedin city wasn’t the Culinary mecca that is today. So i remember alot of very boring meals. Meat and 3 vege type shit.

One thing i had EVERY single day was Cheese and branston pickle in some form or another on bread.
