There is something special about food cooked at home. Something beyond the way it tastes. Home food is about a familiar scent, a secret technique, a pleasant memory, an emotion. A caring parent making soup in the kitchen, or the way bread smells fresh out of the oven. A memory of going fishing with grandpa, or the delicious pickle only grandma can make. Where are these foods from? Do these sentiments have national borders? Does food have a home, a nationality?
The exhibition features 8 personal stories and portraits of individuals living in Estonia.
Exhibition ’Home(of)food’’ is open for visitors in Tartu Market Hall in spring 2021. The exhibition features 8 portraits and personal stories about home-made food and homely tastes of different people living in Estonia.
The exhibition project is funded by Centre for European Policy Analysis.
