AFAM – Coconut: Roundup

Here it is, the roundup of AFAM – Coconut. I knew this fruit is quite popular, but your response was truly overwhelming. Soon after I announced the theme, coconut-y creations from around the world started pouring in, not limited by cuisine or course, just what I was expecting. We have a total of 105 entries, with 2 or even 3 entries from some bloggers. I thank each one of you for your support and enthusiasm, which made hosting this event quite a fun.

The entries are categorized into various heads for easy reference. They are further arranged in the order in which I received ‘em. The event logo on the left plane will bring you to this page for future reference. Visit the gallery to feast with your eyes.

Last, but definitely not least, a big thanks to Maheswari of Beyond The Usual, for conceiving such a brilliant idea and allowing other bloggers, including me, to have the pleasure of hosting this event.
