Chocolate Brownies

We recently held our 4th Brussels Food Friends blogger event on Saturday 28th March 2015 … and this one was just as awesome as the previous 3 (ok, I might be a little bias on this whole community… but trust me when I tell you that the attendees, goodie bag & workshop were all FANTASTIC!).

The workshop held on the day was given by Iris of SWONDERFUL – helping bloggers with food styling for Instagram & for their blogs using either cheese & breads, etc or chocolate brownies & berries… Composition was completely up to the blogger pairs during the practical portion of the day. If you are interested in seeing some of the pictures – just use the hashtag #BxlFF4 on Twitter & Instagram for some awesome shots!

And for this event – I baked a batch of (aforementioned) chocolate brownies…. which were devoured on site or taken home wrapped up in foil…something I am very proud of! They are deliciously squidgy – can be made in advance and last for at least 5days (if they are hovered up by friends and family). In fact – I would go as far as to say that they taste better on day 2 & day 3…..

I didn’t get a chance to take a picture or two on the day – as I was faffing around co-ordinating and chatting… but Alexia of Must be Yummie  very kindly shared her workshop image with us… pretty tasty looking, eh?
