PICNICFARE

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

In hon­our of Kelis and her sauces, here are the Ticket’s five favourite food mo­ments from Elec­tric Pic­nics past .

A PIEMINISTE­R PIE

There is noth­ing bet­ter than a steam­ing hot chorizo or chicken pie to drive away the early au­tumn chills.

RATH­MUL­LAN HOUSE CRAB LIN­GUINI

The Co Done­gal restau­rant and ho­tel over­look­ing Lough Swilly is com­ing down with plau­dits, ac­co­lades, gold stars and brass plaques, but it’s a far dif­fer­ent mat­ter cook­ing in a field in Co Laois. Go­ing on our time here over the last few years, they’ve got it spot-on. Here’s hop­ing that pasta dish is back on this year’s menu.

KI­NARA KITCHEN CHICKEN BIRYANI

One of the big win­ners for the Ticket’s team in Strad­bally last year. Juicy chicken bites decked out in lip-smack­ing spices, a big bed of rice, a freshly baked naan bread and a tangy mango lassi to wash it all down.

WING BAR CHICKEN WINGS

Un­til the Ele­phant & Cas­tle de­cides to skip Dublin 2 and high­tail it to Strad­bally, th­ese fin­ger-lick­ing wings will have to do the trick. Long queues last year thanks to their “as rec­om­mended by The Ticket” tagline.

DAVE’S PIZZA PIZZA

If you hap­pen to be pro­duc­ing a mag­a­zine in a shed in the mid­dle of a field in the mid­dle of Co Laois and are starv­ing as the mid­night dead­line ap­proaches, a wood fire pizza from this wee shack gets the thumbs-up.
