Sydney Food Bloggers Picnic


We all know the first rule of Fight Club.

It appears the annual Food Bloggers picnic organised by Chocolate Suze and GrabYourFork has the same rule. A secret location we set and we even went as far to hide our faces in the group photo.

The photo was tongue in cheek, although there are some bloggers out there who like to keep their identity hidden.

After a tortuous training run in the morning I arrived with only an hour to go. However, it being a food bloggers picnic there was lots left to eat and Simon's pop up bar was still in full swing. 

The food blogging community is something I really value in Sydney. It's fantastic to attend events like the picnic, Eat Drink Blog conference and just meet up with fellow bloggers for dinner. It's something I doubt exists in London in the same way.

Group photo, just to prove we aren't pretentious!

Thanks to Helen and Suze for organising!

Hat Tip to The Heart of Food for the first and final photos.
