Galway Food on the Edge-Future of Food

Kicking off today @FoodOnTheEdge #FoodSymposium #Galway #FOTE2015 where coming together of international chefs & food innovators for 2-days Mon 19th & Tue 20th Oct 2015…

The aim of the symposium is to challenge our perspective on food and our connection to it. There will be approximately 40 speakers over the two day symposium, all chosen for their innovation, passion and influence on today’s food culture. Each speaker, with their own unique perspective, will talk for 15 minutes on the cultural, social, environmental and educational aspects of food.

The mission of Food on the Edge is to create a benchmark for best practice, in terms of food, its culture, and the people who produce it. Chefs everywhere have a responsibility to be the avant-garde of food education, whether in the context of fine dining or street food. We all need to eat better and in order to do this we need to debate this on an open platform.

This year our theme is the ‘Future of Food’. Our speakers will each present on this topic, in personal and political ways. These talks promise to excite and inspire, to bring you to the point of something new, to take you to the edge. The event will take place in the Spiegeltent, Eyre Square, Galway city.
