Food4Good No2 event became a reality on Saturday the 8th of March at Cheapart with 16 food bloggers cooking a non meat savory menu and a no eggs and butter sweet buffet for their guests and donating the amount raised at the Association Together for Children (see what happened at the 1st F4G here).

So much joy once again, too tired afterwards, agony for the success of the event and finally so much satisfaction that everything worked out so good!

I’m so glad to meet in flesh people I only know on line, when old and new friends join the event and when I get to know new ones there! At this F4G event, we cooked our dishes in couples. Sο sweet Nikoletta of yummymommy and me, cooked this delicious black eyed peas’ salad with roasted red sweet peppers, olives and sesame oil dressing. And what’s more Nikoletta had the idea of serving them into dough cups -that her husband kneaded patiently the night before!
