If you were in Centennial Park on Saturday you may have come across a group who seemed to be posing for their group photo a bit differently… heh heh yes that’s right dudes it was the second annual Sydney Food Bloggers Christmas Picnic co-hosted by Helen from Grab Your Fork and I and oh thank you weather gods for it was such a beautiful day! Over 60 bloggers descended on Centennial Park, bearing food, drinks, picnic rugs and of course cameras 😛 [Photo credit: Simon from The Heart of Food]
Food glorious food! Ok I didn’t end up taking too many photos cos I was too busy eating and talking heh my bad! But just like last year there was waaaay too much food with too cute to eat cupcakes, meatballs, xmas puddings, cheesecake, salad, white chocolate wontons, meringues, cheese bread, ribs, chicken rolls, dumplings, cheese, prosciutto, marshmallows, quiche, turkish delight, chicken, and plenty of soft drink to keep up energy levels.
Billy’s ribs were finger lickin good and disappeared fast!
This awesome macaron tower was made by Cleony and ain’t she a beauty! It was a work of art and each macaron tasted like rainbows and happiness! My fav was the caramel oh baby
Helen had organised the Sydney Food Blogger Olympics and participants were randomly chosen and put in teams for the chopsticks challenge, taste test challenge, and the plating and photography challenge which ensured much laughter and egging on from the audience.
And then the Evil Kris Kringle game! Bloggers were instructed to bring a wrapped gift worth about $10 and with numbers drawn outta a bag we took turns to either pick a pressie from the pile or STEAL someone else’s ohoho faves this year was the Cakewich, Ninja cookie cutters, gingy spatula and tea subs
There may or may not have been some wine involved…
