Alongside Wanderdad’s beloved king prawns mum would serve up her piece de resistance – smoky Oysters Kilpatrick straight from the oven. The smell of that heady mix of Worcestershire sauce, barbecue sauce and bacon always evokes those special mornings; torn wrapping paper strewn around the room, laugher and cheers and fun.
