Leaf lettuce bolting

My leaf lettuce is about to bolt. It has grown a big stalk but no flowers yet. Can I cut back the stalk and continue to grow the lettuce?

If you cut it down to about 5 cm from the ground, it should re-sprout new baby leaves, not many, but enough for a few pickings.

Otherwise let it flower, the bees will be pleased bees indeed.
