Food on the Edge sponsored by S.Pellegrino returns on 22 and 23 October, with some of the biggest names in food heading to Galway on Ireland’s rugged West Coast for the two day symposium.

Over 50 top chefs and food leaders will be speaking at the event, which this year takes ‘Conversations’ as one if its central themes, alongside the ‘Future of Food,’ as a way to expand on some of the issues raised at previous editions

Speaking at the event’s national launch in Dublin, chef and organiser JPMcMahon said: “I think it’s very good to sometimes talk through some of the issues and the problems, whether they are mental health, food waste, or education on the chef’s side and also the food education of our children, and that plays into who we are as a society.” The event this year will be dedicated to the memory of the late Anthony Bourdain, who died in June. 

Early bird tickets priced at €300 are still available for the event until 31 August.

Speakers this year include Albert Adria of Tickets, Ana Roš of Hiša Franko, Andoni Luis Aduriz of Mugaritz, Clare Smyth of Core, Malena Martinez of Mater Iniciativa, Matt Orlando of Amass and Will Goldfarb of Room 4 Dessert.
