On Saturday, December 6, 2008, the Penang food bloggers had their third gathering with a potluck theme whereby everyone brought along their own food. With all the food laid on the table, it indeed look like an international buffet spread. There was a wide selection of delicious and addictive food which will definitely please every palate.
This nicely decorated and unique dish was prepared by Criz Lai. It has a combination of Spicy Chicken & Abalone Salad, stir fried Jack Fruit Pork Strips and Sambal Prawns which were very tasty and appetizing. He also gave out to each of us a pair of chopstick as a souvenir.
Lilian Chan brought with her the ingredients for her specialty Smoked Salmon with homemade Focaccia bread, and prepare the dish there and then. Do check out the recipe for this yummy bread at her blog.
Allen Ooi with a creamy pot of Mashed Potatoe which is laid along with the ingredients for the cheese fondue.
Jason & Gill, the couple prepared the Salsa Salad, Lemonade Drinks and the Cheese Fondue. Indeed nice experiencing dipping pieces of Baguette and Roast Pork in the homemade cheese fondue.
Steven Goh – brought along a pot of flavorful Kimchi Fried Rice which easily goes with any dishes.
CK Lam contributed a colorful palate of Sushi Rolls with varieties of Chopped Baby Octopus Sushi, Fish Roe Sushi, Crab Stick Sushi and Unagi Sushi.
Cheesecake Brownies and Lime Pie prepared by Lingzie. I like the chocolate cheesecake brownies which was rich in chocolate, definitely is the cake for a chocolate lover like me.
We were lucky to have bloggers that took the time to travel back from KL to join us in this gathering. This time around, we have Ken Chan, Rebecca and Min.
