The aim of the symposium is to create a benchmark for best practice, in terms of food, its culture, and the people who produce it and is the brainchild of JP McMahon, owner of the EatGalway restaurant group which includes Michelin-starred Aniar Restaurant in Galway. JP is also the “Cook It Raw” Ambassador in Ireland, which has seen him attend and participate in international food events in USA, Mexico, Finland, Canada and other countries.  It was through this involvement that the idea for “Food On The Edge” was sown.


JP said: “Through Cook It Raw, I met many amazing, innovative chefs from all over the world. They are at the top of their game, many of them Michelin-star and often double Michelin-star standard. Their drive to constantly test boundaries with food and food sustainability and then share that knowledge is inspirational. “Many have never been to Ireland, let alone Galway, so given the beauty of our rugged location and the food provenance we have here it was an easy task to ask them to speak at Food On The Edge and visit”. Speakers and attendees confirmed for the event reads like a who’s who in the restaurant world. Flying in from San Francisco, Mexico, Singapore, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and many other places not least, the UK, they are coming to converge, speak and attend the event.
