Food, Booze & Shoes
This is the final round-up of Sydney food bloggers and their Crave Sydney International Food Festival activities.

It's been a great four weeks that have just flown by!

Let's Do Brunch
Café Ish by Chris & Tim (The Way It Crumbles)

Markets & Precinct Promotions

Food, Booze & Shoes
Special Dinners
There are still a few Tomislav Just Desserts posts rolling in from Helen (Grab Your Fork) and Phuoc (Phuoc'n Delicious) - this was a popular event!
Monica (Love My Foods & Sugar) went green and sustainable with a 100 Mile Dinner at Bistrode CBD while Fouad (The Food Blog) shared is murky family history in a post about the Dagdeviren and Sivrioglu Dinner at Efendy.

Sugar Hits
Wowzers, Sydney bloggers love their desserts:
Azuma Kushiyaki and Old Sydney Holiday Inn by JNYW (The Food Zoo);
Bistrode CBD and Sheraton on the Park by Monica (Love My Foods & Sugar);
Guylian Café, Radisson, Sheraton on the Park  and Old Sydney Holiday Inn by Mademoiselle Délicieuse (Spoon, Fork & Chopsticks).

Spoon, Fork & Chopsticks
Talk & Taste
Helen (Grab Your Fork) learnt all about Molecular Gastronomy at the Chef's Armoury educational event.

Love My Foods & Sugars
I am sure there are loads and loads of events and posts that I didn't manage to find for these round-ups, but based on the ones I did get hold of I think we can enjoy some fund facts.

This year 46 food bloggers have blogged about their involvement in 124 events including:
• 10 brunches
• 14 precinct festivals and markets
• 15 hats off, drink & dine and special dinners
• 20 lunches
• 29 sugar hits

All that was worth around A$5,500 in spend (not including all the $$$ potentially spent at the markets, festivals and precinct events). And I'm sure some of you took part in events you didn't blog about (I did).

We're no small army of customers, promoters and broadcasters!

Here are the other weeks for your reading pleasure:
Sun 10-Oct-2010 (Week 1)
Sun 17-Oct-2010 (Week 2)
Sun 24-Oct-2010 (Week 3)

Until 2011!
