For the Love of Food – a Food Bloggers’ Potluck


When Wendy of Table for 2 or More invited me to join a food bloggers’ potluck, I said I would love to join but the venue is quite far for me (takes more than an hour’s drive). Then I immediately replied again “Well, for the love of food & meeting bloggers, I will be there!”

Hosted at Swee San of The Sweet Spot‘s beautiful house, it was a gathering full of laugther, feasting and exchanging food stories.  I tell you these bloggers are all very talented cooks, how fortunate I am to know them 🙂

Even though the theme for this potluck is tapas or small-portioned finger food, we all went back fully stuffed. Let the photos of the amazing array of food do the talking

  6. I never thought I’ll get to eat grape leaves ever! Thank you for the experience.
    LOL, we have always prepared too much food, the spread this time is a lot smaller than previous pot lucks where most of us prepare more than 3 dishes, LOL!
    Let’s just say, we’ve learnt it the hard way.

  7. Wow, that’s quite a feast! Everyone brought such fantastic dishes to share. Such fun to be with other foodies : )

    • Yes Liz, it was indeed a feast even though we are told to bring just 1 portion per person for each dish. luckily we are able to finish all! Indeed to so much fun with foodies that cook.. 😀

  8. So fun!! Everything looks amazing.

  9. WOW, what a feast over there! I never had the chance to meet any of my blogging friends till now, just chatted via phone. Hope to meet them soon after seeing your post! 🙂

    Mouthwatering dishes I would say….heaven!

    • Yes, it’s indeed a feast, but luckily we are already warned to just bring 1-2 piece for each person, so all the food were finished on the spot, no need to pack home 🙂 It’s different with chatting online. You ladies should organise a potluck too, it will be more fun than just meeting over tea 🙂

  10. How cool is that! I wish I could meet up so many food bloggers at a time with all those delecacies! Jsut recently I met my first blogger here in my near. Was pretty exciting. =)

    I am melting when I am looking at all those amazing treats. Dragon fruit jelly? Dried Prawn Sambal Cucumber Cups? Count me in next time, if I am around! 😉
