Only days to go for purchasing Early Bird tickets for Food On The Edge 2019, with the special, reduced-priced offer due to end on the 31st of July.

The global two-day food symposium consisting of 15-minute talks, panel discussions, masterclasses and networking activity is taking place on the 21st and 22nd of October in the National University of Ireland, Galway. Organisers say tickets are selling fast, with a sell-out show last year and the year before.
Food On The Edge founder and symposium director JP McMahon said, “I would encourage people to get their ticket early. We have an excellent line-up this year and tickets are going to be in high demand. More names are being announced in the coming weeks, some of whom are highly anticipated and will draw some interesting debate and discussion.”
This year the theme of the global food symposium is migration, with regards to how food travels and how that affects people’s perception of food, and we will also be carrying forward previous FOTE themes. Speakers already announced include cult chefs and stars of the Netflix series Chef’s Table, namely Brazil’s most influential chef Alex Atala of D.O.M, and New Zealand-born Ben Shewry of Attica restaurant. Columbian chef and winner of 2017 Best Female Chef in Latin America Leonor Espinosa of Leo Cocina y Cava will be attending as well as trailblazer Daniel Giusti, former head chef of Noma in Copenhagen, who set up Brigaid, a project which puts professional chefs into public schools to transform and rethink school food.
The Early Bird two-day ticket rate for Food On The Edge of €350 ends on the 31st of July, after which the Full Price two-day ticket rate kicks in of €400. Tickets can be purchased online at www.foodontheedge.ie.
