Who ate all the pies?

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

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).
