Sydney’s Food Blogger Christmas Picnic

Sydney Food Blogger's Picnic

I somehow managed to earn the right to be a food blogger for some reason. How else, did I manage to score an invitation to Sydney’s biggest food blogger event last Sunday? Organised by the lovely Helen and Suze, it was the biggest gathering of foodies I have ever encountered. The group met in Hyde Park and as I scanned the park, all I had to do was keep my eye open for a mountain of food and 50+ cameras.

Or in this case, plenty of cameras being pointed to the mountain of food…

It was quite amazing to be surrounded by so many foodies and although I don’t know the majority of those present, the conversation came easily. Towards the end of the afternoon, we each selected a present from the mound of Kris Kringle gifts, with one particular gift being coveted more than normal. I managed to take a quick snap before it was claimed by another hand. All in all, a fun afternoon and thanks for organising such a great event ladies!

Sydney Food and Wine Fair

High Tea

It’s nearly the end of Good Food Month, unlike previous years where I circled each week to pay homage to the god of gluttony, this year I’ve only managed to go to the Sydney Food and Wine Fair, but it’s definitely one not to miss.

Hyde Park was bustling by the time I arrived around quarter to 12. The queue for vouchers was already snaking its way close to St James, but after $20 lighter I met up with some friends and we followed our collective senses to the tastiest looking stands.

My highlight of the day had to be the rather deceptively innocent looking blue crab sandwiches. Pillowed between the two pieces of bread, the crab was subtle but refreshing and would not look out of place if served for High Tea.

Talking about High Tea, the Tea Room also had their own stall. For 3 vouchers or $7.50 you get a plateful of a selection from their High Tea menu minus scone.

Pork Pie

Wandered off and bought the Delicious showbag which was a bargain at $5.00, but we missed getting the mushroom burger because of the insane line up, though all in all we did ended up eating through a good amount of tasty bits between us.
