Attendees heading to Food on the Edge next Monday and Tuesday will be happy to learn that Magnus Nilsson formerly of two Michelin-starred Faviken will be on the stage. The amazing line-up of speakers is not the only thing to be excited about, however, here is a little more of what attendees can expect:
The Masterclasses are always in demand so we urge you to get in early. Masterclasses this year include The Future of Experiential Food Tourism and panel discussion curated by Failte Ireland, or how about hearing how wine is made on Mount Enda? Honest2Goodness is hosting winemaker from the region Agatino Failla of Benanti winery. Matt Orlando will talk to JP McMahon about Culinary Waste, while craft gardener Martina Dunne of Airfield Estate will host attendees on a tour of the estate and its produce. While San Pellegrino will host Selassie Atadika’s masterclass.
Eoin Cluskey of Bread 41 is doing a pop-up bakery on site so attendees will get a freshly baked pastry and, as always, the team from Gather & Gather Ireland will knock it out of the ballpark, or, in this case the Estate, with the lunch offering. In the past, attendees have enjoyed main courses like free range chicken, yeasted roasted Jerusalem artichoke, fermented puree, pickle, kale, and roast monkfish on the bone with organic potatoes, kale, golden raisin verjus and capers and baked celeriac, pickle celeriac, seaweed emulsion and hazelnuts. The sumptuous salads of previous years included harissa roast heritage carrots, rose, labneh and smoked almonds; and barley, wild mushrooms, herbs, caramelised onions. Who said salads were boring!
La Rousse will be hosting the ever-impressive Irish food producer’s village featuring the best food producers Ireland has to offer. See the full line-up here. While Heavy Man Films, are back on dry land after filming the heroic rowing of Damien Browne, will be capturing the electric excitement of Food On The Edge.
Finally, after the two jam-packed days of talks and events the speakers this year will head off on a post-event ‘Cultural and Culinary Excursion’ supported by Dun Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council, The Fáilte Ireland Dublin Region, Bord Bia and Wicklow Naturally. While the iconic Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire will be hosting the 2022 speakers.
