Food on the Edge 2019 is a go.
The first set of speakers for what is one of Ireland’s ‘must attend’ food events of the year have also been announced.
Alex Atala, Ben Shewry, Leonor Espinosa and Daniel Giusti are the first chef speakers destined for Galway this autumn.
Via the official announcement, this year’s theme is all about migration.
“Our theme this year is migration, with regards to how food travels and how that affects people’s perception of food”, says founder and host JP McMahon.
“We will also carry forward previous themes, as well as bringing back past speakers.”
What is Food on the Edge?
If you’re coming to it fresh, the two days event boils down to a series of 15 minute talks and panel discussions – and heaps more.
There are also masterclasses, with an artisan food village on site for both days.
It’s not just fans of food that head to Galway – you’re talking the creme of chefs around the world, food thinkers, lovers, producers, makers and shakers.
2019 also sees popup events in London (May) and Dublin (August).
When is Food on the Edge 2019?
As with previous years, it’s an October outing for 21-22 October in Galway city.
2019 marks a fifth consecutive year for the event. If you were holding out for the Galway Food Festival, you might shift your attention to Food on the Edge instead.
Early bird tickets will set you back €350 for the full event, with talks of an installment plan in place to spread payments.
Prices go up to €400 from 1 July.
