Food on the Edge 2016 launched earlier this week at Amass Restaurant Copenhagen amidst an evening's gathering of guests, food driven discussions and chef prepared dishes.
Led by the symposium creator and director, JP McMahon surrounded by Nordic chefs Matt Orlando, Christian Puglisi and Sasu Laukkonen the evening was a fitting taster of what's to come later in the year on 24th and 25th October in Galway, Ireland.
Take a look inside the event in this film taken on the night:
Peruvian chef Diego Muñoz was the first official speaker to open the discussion floor for 2016, kicking off with a talk on the sustainability of the fishing industry.
“It's really important that chefs move out of the kitchen to research in order to understand the production process. It's about time that we kept a close eye on our natural resources, they are the core of our gastronomy” Munoz commented.
Other guests included chefs Niklas Ekstedt of Ekstedt restaurant in Stockholm, Syrco Bakker of Pure C Restaurant in The Netherlands, Ross Lewis of Chapter One Restaurant in Dublin as well as Syrco Bakker, the Irish Ambassador to Denmark Cliona Manahan and John Mulcahy the Head of Food Tourism at Fáilte Ireland.
The restaurant kitchen was in full swing during the night's proceedings with Jp McMahon and his Nordic chef colleagues preparing a number of signature snacks during the evening.
