The Picnic!

Thanks to everyone who came along to the picnic.  Although the weather wasn't kind to us, and it ended up being an indoor "picnic", that didn't get in the way of a terrific afternoon of food.  Here's what we ate (until our stomachs could take no more):

Red velvet cupcakes

Chicken and tarragon pie

Beetroot and goats cheese tart

Gazpacho with pide bread

Goats cheese and herb quiche

Ricotta almond slice with passionfruit jelly

Beef and horseradish choux pastries

Spicy Dr Pepper pork with BBQ corn salsa

Crack pie

Limmer's gin punch jellies

Cherry tomatoes with goats cheese and capers

Korean pork pancakes with spicy sauce

Swan shaped choux pastries

Swede and potato pasties

Cherry strudel

Sorry there weren't more photos, but I was too busy eating!  Seeing as we had so much amazing food and everyone had a great afternoon, we'll definitely be doing another one later in the year.

Also, we were lucky enough to have Fiona from Tiffin along to the picnic, and you can read more about it (with better photos) on her blog here.

Hope to see you at another Gastronauts event soon - looking like our next dinner will be on 19 May 2012.
