This year’s 2010 Brickworks Slow Food Picnic was a resounding success. Good Food Revolution sent Jamie Drummond to capture some of the action on his “Dadcam” and he swears that it was “the best Slow Food Picnic EVER!!!” Looking at his pictures it certainly appears that way…

Thank you to all of the farmers, chefs, producers, and suppliers who took part and special thanks to the Picnic committee for making it happen.
