Here's the round-up of food blogging activities for week three of the Crave Sydney International Food Festival.

Bilson's by Monica
Week three is still pretty busy, but it means that next week is your last chance to snap up the tasty festival treats and cheap deals.

Cocktail of the Month
Gourmantic (Gourmantic) is drank up at Monkey Magic with a cocktail made with gin, cucumber, honey and absinthe.

Hats Off Dinner
Monica (Love My Foods & Sugar) made it to one of the famous Hats Off dinners, this one on Nouvelle Cuisine at Bilson's Restaurant. Some pretty tasty photos.

Thelma & Louise Mademoiselle Délicieuse (Spoon, Fork & Chopsticks)
Let's Do Brunch
D (Here Comes The Food) had a great meal at Efendy, Monica (Love My Foods & Sugar) tried out the 'sunny' Hyde Park Barracks Café, Mademoiselle Délicieuse (Spoon, Fork & Chopsticks) experienced a north-side brunch at Thelma & Louise Café and Penguin (Penguin Says Feed Me) staked out Café Ish.

Let's Do Lunch
It's tagine at Sean's Kitchen by Aimee (Aimee Chanthadavong) and crispy-skinned chicken at my own lunching experience at Guillaume at Bennelong.

It was a village atmosphere at the Summer Hill Grand Food Bazaar by Lisa (Lisa Perkovic)

Pub Grub Pies
One of the little known additions to this year's festival is the interesting pub pie special which I have been spending quite some time searching out. First at the Lord Nelson Brewery and then a Balmain and Rozelle pub pie crawl visiting the Riverview Hotel, the Welcome Hotel, the Royal Oaks Hotel and the 3 Weeds.

Tomislav by Billy (A Table for Two)
Special Dinners
Franz (Australian Gourmet Pages) had a great time at the Young Chefs Dinner at Rockpool Bar & Grill , Jane (Jane Cooks Live) supported sustainable cooking at the 10 Mile Dinner at Dank Street Depot while Billy (A Table for Two)Suze (Chocolate Suze) and Monica (Love My Foods & Sugar) were all at the amazing Just Desserts dinner at Tomislav. I have my eye on this restaurant. It looks fantastic.

Grace Hotel by Ffichiban (Here Comes The Food)
Sugar Hits
These dessert plates are still as popular as they are every year with visits to Bacco Chifley Plaza by Monica (Love My Foods & Sugar), The Westin by Aimee (Aimee Chanthadavong), Azuma Patisserie by Lee (The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry), Monkey Magic by Gourmantic (Gourmantic) and a strong effort put in by Ffichiban (Here Comes The Food) with three hits in one night at the Grace Hotel, Bacco & Shangri-La Hotel

Talk & Taste
The bubbly Jayne (Champagne Jayne) posted a video on her subject of passion and expertise, champagne.

Grace Hotel by Minh (Eat Show and Tell)
