In 2021 the first edition of SONMAT took place. This year we are back again with a tasteful programme. Immerse yourself on Sunday 16 October in culture, philosophy and science in the café of Kunstencentrum VIERNULVIER in Gent.
Did you know a dish tastes different depending on who prepared it? Tender hands can bring out comfort from a dish like magic, but the handflora from the chef also literally influence the flavour of a dish. Our language has no word for it, but in Korean there is: 'sonmat', meaning hand-taste. So through food we connect and give a bit from ourselves to others. That is exactly what SONMAT wants to do: explore, taste, smell and share different hand-flavours.
