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.
Sonmat Talk & Tasting
Start Talk & Tasting 15:00, start film The Host 16:45 @ Theaterzaal in Kunstencentrum VIERNULVIER
The Korean Moon Sung Hee is known as 'natural food researcher' who cooks, studies, teaches and writes about natural vegan food. With a deep faith in people, nature and how food can harmonize, Moon Sung Hee was involved with several social projects about food, published different cookbooks and runs a cooking studio with her daughter. During the SONMAT TALK & TASTING we want to give the Korean cultchef a platform to share her philosophy and food. We will begin with a talk, demo workshop and tasting (light meal), afterwards there is space for a personal meet & greet.
