As I am eighth in the long line of Sainsbury’s TTW graduates I was expected to follow their lead and have Bloody Mary oyster shooters- I went expecting the worst but they were surprisingly tasty! As there is no photographic evidence, I’ve been informed that I will have to have some more another time!
