Centennial Park, NSW, Australia
Hot Luck Picnic
A casual picnic to celebrate Simon's birthday from The Heart of Food brings me to Centennial Park on a very hot Sunday reaching temperatures well over 30 degrees. I could tell the heat took it's toll on even the most passionate food lovers appetites who tried to stay cool under the very large tree — but there was no escaping the ravaging heat wave. On the menu were plenty of pastries and cakes from Brasserie Bread which makes one of my favourite Orange and Almond Friands. Today I get to try the Flourless Brownie which I now add to my list of favourites. The Summer Tarts looked great and I tried I bit of each which were good. The Coconut Teacakes were also very good which unfortunately didn't fair as well in the heat as the icing slowly started to melt away. A huge box of different breads big enough to feed a small army was on standby to go with the BBQ sausages and salads. Besides the overwhelming heat it was a lovely day to spend with friendly faces and indulge in some delicious food.
