Who ate all the pies?
For Picnic-goers, the food stalls are an essential part of the weekend’s appeal.
Indeed, The Ticket at the Electric Picnic carried a rake of food reviews in the Saturday edition.
But Paul Mc was not a happy camper with this. “I read the Pieminister review in The Ticket and screamed ‘no, the queue’s gonna be massive!’.” And he was right. As Colm from Eyebrowy put it: “Queues are like league tables – and they don’t lie. By the looks of them this weekend, EP punters are putting Mr Pieminister’s kids through college.”
Other gourmet treats winning over our readers included “the Real Gourmet Burger and Paulaner beer” (Liam); “the mint chocolate fudge from the farmers’ market, free Glenisk vanilla yogurts and the wine stall where a glass of Riesling could be got for ¤4.50 and where you could get gorgeous cider” (Portixol); “freshly battered, strangely unspined fish and chips from the Sea Cow people” (Nigel).
