Kicked off by Eat Galway‘s (Cava, Aniar, EAT) JP McMahon, the reading back of #FOTE2016 tweets show really positive takeaways from those in attendance this past week.

I’ve it marked in the diary for next year for sure.

What’s Food On The Edge All About?


Food on the Edge is a coming-together of top international chefs for a 2-day Food Symposium in Galway city on the Wild Atlantic Way. It takes place over two days every year in October. Food on the Edge is a not-for-profit conference seeking to make good food accessible for everyone.

The aim of the symposium is to challenge our perspective on food and our connection to it. Approximately 50 chefs speak over the two day symposium. All are chosen for their innovation, passion and influence on today’s food culture. Each speaker, with their own unique perspective, talks for 15 minutes on the cultural, social, environmental and educational aspects of food. The emphasis for the talk is on their visson for the future of food and how we can make things better on both a local and a global level
