Sydney Xmas Food Blogger's Picnic 2010

Camembert with Cranberry Sauce and Walnuts from Georgia at Bakery Bookery.

The Sydney Food Bloggers' Xmas Picnic 2010 was such a blast! It was such a lovely feeling to unwind for an afternoon - especially when that new job has me so beat all the time! It was just food and friends, and a much-appreciated chance to chill out.

Orange and pistachio cupcakes from Angie at Angie Lives to Eat.

Mini chocolate Christmas puddings from Vivian at Vxdollface.

 Chicken drumlettes from Josh and his mom at Belly Rumbles.

 Strawberry Santas from Ayana at Absolutely Ayana.

Springrolls from Julie at I Dream in Chocolate.

Salmon Quiche from Clarissa at Eat My Shots.

Slow Cooked Ribs from Billy at A Table for Two.

Macaron tree from Cleony at I eat sweet.

Pork and Brie rissoles from Simon at The Heart of Food.

And then there was the Kris Kringle!! Everyone had to bring a gift worth not more than $10, and contribute them to the pile. I contributed some homemade jam (which I had second thoughts about after I saw all the other cooler things that came out of the pile) that Peter got. I'm so glad that he liked it! =)

There were also Ninjabread cookie cutters that everyone fought over.

Thanks to Chocolatesuze and Grabyourfork for organizing!! I had a lovely time. =)

P.S. Sorry for the rather taciturn post. I was just really exhausted for the most of it. Also sorry that I don't have everyone's dishes down pat!! If you'd like to pop me an email or a comment 'claiming' your dish, please do and I'll make the edits. Thanks guys!

Your cheese bread was AMAZING! I'm so happy you brought it along. Hope you get a bit of a break over X-mas and a chance to unwind. So lovely to meet you in person at the picnic.

Yep, my dish was indeed pork & cheese rissoles. Brie cheese if you wanted to be precise.

Love the tagline for the ninjabread men :)
