It was that time of the year again for Sydney’s food bloggers to unite and celebrate what we all have in common. Our massive love for food! This is the 5th annual Sydney Food Bloggers Christmas picnic that the awesome Chocolatesuze and Helen of Grab Your Fork has organised. Despite of the gloomy wet weather prior the picnic meet-up, these two stayed positive and fought through. They even organised tents for the humans and food just to make sure this celebration went on. As we finished setting up the tents (big props to Rosa for her girl scout skills!), the sunshine finally made its appearance like it never rained!
A giant box containing 25 kgs worth of Jurassic pork crackling shards courtesy of Mr Crackles was the first to appear at the food altar. People started to arrive and next thing you know, there was an abundance of food and drinks. After eating, drinking and mingling, we proceeded to do the traditional Evil Secret Santa event (one doesn’t like the present they have opened, one can steal someone else’s present).
Here are some of the people and food:
|Lemper by Irene (of Irene's Getting Fat)|
|Macarons by yours truly hehehe|
|Cheese, bacon and veggie slices by The Suz Chef|
|Honeycomb by Man Craves|
|Santa deco-roll by Absolutely Ayana|
|Choc fudge brownies with caramel by My See Food Diet|
|Pulled lamb by Jeroxie and homemade picnic bread by Crunchy Tiger|
|Pandan chiffon cake by Angie Lives to Eat|
|Just like Mel (The Adventures of Miss Piggy), we absolutely loved the pork cracklings!|
|White choc raspberry muffins from The Chronicles of Hilda and crab meat and cucumber sushi from My Hunger Will Go on|
|Fruit skewers by Corridor Kitchen|
|Love Swah's gorgeous coconut and pineapple cupcakes|
|Vegetarian marshmallows from Spoonfuls of Goodness|

|Scrolls cheesy scrolls from Penguin Says Feed Me|
|Ando's (The Lam Stock) sausage rolls got demolished coz they so good.|
