Date: 23 February 2008
Time: 7.30 pm - 11.00 pm
Venue: Sid's (of BigBoysOven)
Theme: Chinese New Year (technically)
Food bloggers, chefs and their families.
The menu consisted of local/international fares. Fusion included.
As all the dishes were distinctively flavourful and scrumptious, classification of level of deliciousness was impossible. For the mains, an interesting observation was the ability of the dishes to complement each other, in an arbitrary manner. For example, the chee cheong fun with the curry sauce or the pasta with the roasted meat or the white bread with the caramelized meat. The desserts, which ranged from tiramisus to desiccated coconut coated nian gao to Chinese New Year cookies, provided a good finish to the meal.
The noise level, though bearable, was still high due to the laughters and interesting conversations (sharing of recipes and travelling included) among the attendees.
Unanimously, the fun level was high. The session was extended until 11.00 pm as there were many unfinished storytellings, post-potluck activity plannings and doggie-bagging of the unfinished portions of the dishes.
Overall, the potluck has exposed attendees to many interesting (and new) aspects of food as all were of different backgrounds and interests. A sense of camaraderie was also felt among the attendees. At the time of departure, there were already talks of organizing another similar event in the near future.
Deepest gratitude to the organiser for the desserts as well as time spent in realizing such an enjoyable event. And not forgetting the attendees for the interesting ideas and jokes as well as Teckiee for the additional photos to complete report.
