On Wednesday this past week, Good Food Month came to an end for another year.
In the last few days some eager foodies managed to squeeze in a little more gluttony and here are the results:
JenJen from Milk and Cookies ventured out last weekend to the Sydney Food & Wine Fair in Hyde Park. Her photos capture the festive atmosphere of the event, snapping people, greenery and a game of oversized chess, not to mention a gorgeous Bathers Pavilion almond tart with fresh berries and cream.
Emily (aka Pickles) from Pickles Perks also indulged at the Sydney Food & Wine Fair and her photos highlight the extensive and diverse food options on the day: burgers, lemongrass and prawn salad, cupcakes, lemon tarts, bbq quail and pork sausages and sauerkraut . . . to name just a few.
While Emily and Jen were busy eating at Hyde Park, I was in Surry Hills watching the butchers at Hudson Meats deconstruct a spring lamb. I learnt all about carving as well as where the various cuts of meat come from and what happens to the waste. It was so educational that I’d recommend to everyone.
Kat from Coffee Habits took one more Sugar Hit, this time at the Shangri-la Hotel. The Chocolate Lovers Plate contained a Trio of Rhubarb & White Chocolate Gelato; 70% Excellence Macaroon w Raspberry Ganache; and Roast Banana Gianduja Mousse w Coconut Crisp. Read over her post to see just how much she enjoyed this one!
My last GFM activity was Let’s Do Lunch at Bécasse, where I melted over the divine slow roast rump of rose veal w crushed potatoes & warm vinaigrette of spring vegetables. Not to mention the vanilla & cardamom pannacotta w blood orange granita and the musk stick soufflé w yoghurt ice cream & cantaloupe coulis. Food orgasm!
So that’s it for Good Food Month 2007!
