Best-selling cookbook author and lifestyle blogger Roz Purcell has collaborated with Just Eat to create a tasty new vegan burger for Electric Picnic.

The Natural Born Feeder has co-created the limited edition burger in partnership with festival fave Box Burger, alongside Ireland's leading food ordering and delivery app.

Even better news: You can have your chance to win sold-out VIP camping tickets by tapping the Just Eat app.

The burger is made in partnership with head chef Mitch Clarke from Box Burger, and served exclusively from ‘Flavourville’ at the Just Eat Retreat.

Roz’s limited-edition menu offering includes a delicious satay patty with sweet mango slaw served in a fluffy vegan brioche, and we're drooling already.

The Just Eat Retreat is celebrating its sixth year at the festival, with Box Burger, Platform Pizza, Daata and Arctic Stone all joining the foodie fun.

Roz’s gorgeous Vegan Box Burger is just one of the specialist cuisines topping the Flavourville bill, but we're possibly the most excited to taste the dish.

Arctic Stone, Ireland's first and finest hand-rolled ice-cream, will be serving up a host of gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan friendly flavours, while Platform Pizza deliver a slice of plant-based heaven with their Vegan Pizza. 

Roz describes the meal as the ultimate festival feast; 

“I'm so excited to be partnering with Just Eat and Box Burger for this year's Electric Picnic festival.  As a big lover of Box Burger’s vegan menu, a fan of Just Eat and a regular Electric Picnic festival goer it’s so exciting to be able to order something at the festival that I've created. The burger is delicious and whether you're vegan or not, you'll love it!”

Back by popular demand, the Just Eat Picnic Porters will be stationed at the entrance of the Stradbally site to help guests bring their belongings from the car to the campsite.

Once again, all voluntary tips and donations received will go towards Just Eat's charity partners; Peter McVerry Trust.

Last year, picnic-goers generously donated over €800 of vital funds to the organisation.

Just Eat is also giving 10 lucky customers the chance to win a pair of VIP weekend camping tickets to Electric Picnic (which is sold-out as you may have heard).

Find the VIP Pass to Flavourville in your Just Eat order and you and a friend will be heading to Stradbally in style.

Simply tap the Just Eat app for breakfast, lunch or dinner delivered straight to your home or office from now until Thursday 22 August and be in with a chance to win.

The line-up this year is looking sweet, savoury and spicy; All you need to do is order a meal to possibly snatch tickets worth over €300? Damn, that sounds delish to us.


While the months are getting colder, our palettes are still craving a cool, frozen sweet treat. 

Luckily, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to confectionery, but at this time of year, we're out to treat ourselves with something special. 

Rolled ice cream is not only delicious, it's also the most Instagram friendly dessert we have ever seen.

Arctic Stone is our ride or die when it comes to the icy delicacy –  and as their rolling videos portray, the technique takes major skill. 

A bit of history on the process, rolled ice cream is regularly served in Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, and the Philippines – originating in the Thai capital.

The technique involves pouring the sweet liquid onto a freezing plate, before the expert rollers use some major skill to carefully shape the now-forming ice cream.

Arctic Stone was inspired by the popular rolling method after founder Caolán Cullen was enchanted by the method during his travels.

He knew he needed to take the concept back to Ireland, where he could improve the technique by using the most delicious Irish ingredients.

Back in the Emerald Isle, Cáolan started brainstorming, and came up with Arctic Stones signature flavours – and the genius idea to build a business around the foodie treat.

A cold plate was sourced, and with the addition of Cáolan's brother Tom to the mix, the rest is history. 

Dubbed an innovation dessert, rolled ice cream is gaining huge popularity in Ireland thanks to Arctic Stone, and with their diverse flavour range, it's not hard to see why. 

From the Muy Bueno, which incorporated the holy grail of chocolate bars, the Kinder Bueno, to Berry Necessities, a fruity burst of summer berries, there is a roll for every palette.

They also regularly try out vegan flavours, with their recent Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake proving to be a hit.

As well as being vegan friendly, one of the company's main priorities is being environmentally aware, with Cáolan being strongly opposed to the use of single use plastic.

So since day one, all of Arctic Stone's packaging, spoons, straws, cups, etc are all 100% certified compostable and eco friendly. Swit swoo. 

The lads now have two locations in Dublin, one in Blackrock market, where you can find them rolling from Wednesday to Sunday, and in People's Park Dun Laoghaire, where they set up shop on a Sunday. 

However, Cáolan is already planning on expanding nationally, and has set his sights on opening stores in Galway, Cork and Belfast – all at the ripe old age of 24. 

So look out, the ice cream innovation could soon be rolling into a city near you.
