The national launch of Food on the Edge 2019 took place on the afternoon of Monday August 26 at Dylan McGrath's Fade Street Social restaurant in Dublin.
The main theme of Food on the Edge 2019 is migration. The two-day symposium will examine "how food travels and how that affects people's perception of food", while also continuing to explore the future of food.
Founder and symposium director of Food on the Edge JP McMahon stated, "There has been a natural evolution within Food On The Edge over the years which reflects the changes in food culture on a global level. We have seen a progression away from simply talking about food to recognising the power of food as a tool for social change.
"Food on the Edge is the avant garde of Irish food culture. We bring some of the best chefs and industry professionals together to inspire us to change the way we think about food in Ireland. We bring them also to showcase our beautiful country with its rich history and heritage. It is an ongoing dialogue between us and them, transforming and developing the future of our food and food culture on this island."
Food On The Edge 2019 will take place in Galway on October 21 and October 22, and will include 15-minute talks, panel discussions, masterclasses and networking activity.
