Competition time - yay! I have FOUR amazing hampers up for grabs!! I cannot express how grateful I am to the following businesses that have so generously donated to this food filled extravaganza!
Fallon & Byrne - they have offered a wonderful hamper for this competition giveaway, filled with Gluten Free goodies. In it would be a combination of their own housemade produce as well as other Gluten Free brand names that they carry in the Food Hall. It will be presented in a beautiful wooden box. I can personally vouch for how amazingly delicious Fallon & Byrne produce is. This hamper will be made up fresh for the winner, so whoever gets this hamper will have an amazing feast of food to look forward to.

Next up is a superb hamper from Áine Hand Made Chocolates. It's times like these I wish I could enter my own competitions! To quote from their website ' Áine Hand Made Chocolate - the luxurious taste of heavenly hand made Irish chocolate from award-winning Master Chocolatier, Ann Rudden. This truly is chocolate as it should be - mouth watering, melt-in-the-mouth magic... Our chocolate is made using fresh Irish butter and cream and a couverture blend with a high content of cocoa solids. And because we believe that everybody should share in the tempting taste of our hand made chocolate, it is all gluten-free and there are sugar-free varieties too...' YUMMY!

You can buy their amazing chocolate in Avoca stores, Fallon & Byrne and many other gourmet food halls and cafés around the country. Just amazing quality. Go ahead and spoil yourself!

There is an incredible hamper from Barry's Tea. I mean you need to drink something to wash down all that amazing food and chocolate that's up for grabs! What a better way than with Barry's Tea. This hamper is jam-packed with Barry's Tea goodies - A tin of their classic blend tea, a box of gold blend tea, a tea caddy with their loose leaf gold blend, two Barry's Tea mugs (tea is always best drunk in good company!), an amazing range of their fruit & herbal teas and a thermal travel mug... again, I wish I could take part in this giveaway competition! What a prize.

So how do you go about entering this giveaway? Here's what to do...
The aim of the game is to promote Irish business and gluten free brands that are available in Ireland - these brands don't necessarily have to be Irish.
First, you have to 'like' my facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/TheGlutenFreePhotographer and/or 'follow' my blog - points at right hand side of this page at the 'Followers' section.
Then either e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, post a comment on my facebook page or comment on this blog post with a suggestion of either a gluten free/coeliac friendly brand that has not already been featured in my 'Off The Shelf' page AND/OR name a restaurant/café/hotel/B&B/bakery/catering service anywhere in the 32 counties of Ireland, that is great for coeliacs and is not already featured on my 'Eat Out' page. I'm not talking about somewhere that only has a salad or omelette on the menu that is listed as a dish that is coeliac friendly, or a café that may have a piece of brownie or one piece of cake that is suitable for coeliacs - what you recommend has to be genuinely coeliac superb. A place or service that really is fantastic for the gluten free foodie, with a wide range of menu options or services for the coeliac or gluten intolerant.
If you are already following my blog or you are on my facebook page, you can enter by just submitting your suggestion to me, as above.
I'm going to run this competition for 2 weeks and everyone who enters will be automatically put into a draw and the winners of the hampers will be decided from that.
So get your thinking caps on!
Closing date will be Friday 20th May 2011. The four lucky winners will be announced on Saturday 21st May 2011. Only one entry per person.
