Food on the Edge – Launch Party, Dublin

The best chefs and foodies from across the world come to Galway each year for Food on the Edge. We were delighted to host the launch of FOTE2016 in Fade Street Social Dublin where Symposium Director, JP McMahon, introduced this year’s speakers.

Food on the Edge is a two day symposium that takes place now annually in Galway, Ireland. It is for chefs & food enthusiasts all around the world who want to create a better global network.

Food on the Edge is a coming together of chefs to listen, talk and debate about the future of food in our industry and on our planet.

This year the symposium takes place on Monday 24th & Tuesday 25th October 2016.
