IT’S not just musician Gary Keane that’ll be flying the flag for Tralee talent at this year’s Electric Picnic (see story here).

Local business, The Gluten Free Kitchen, has been invited to showcase and sell its products at the famous festival.

Doireann Barrett, who owns and runs the cafe, was contacted by well known food critic Sally McKenna who personally invited her to come sell at the festival.

“It’s a great thrill to be asked to come on board, we have to set our minds set now preparation now, which will be difficult because we have never done a music festival before,” said Doireann.

“Thankfully other local businesses are giving us a helping hand” she added.

The Gluten Free Kitchen is based in Ivy Terrace and has been in operation going since 2012.

“We’ll be able to cater for celiacs at Electric Picnic along with health-conscious gig-goers too,” said Doireann. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase our brand nationally and to network,” she added.

The Kitchen will set up in an indoor marquee called ‘Theatre of Food’ from 10am to 8pm, where they will be alongside celebrity chefs such as Darina Allen and Clodagh McKenna who will be doing food demonstrations.

Doireann and one other staff member will head up for the festival in Stradbally Co Laois. It won’t be all work as they will get all access passes for the duration of the music festival.
