Karmakamet Conveyance ‘APPRECIATION’ Tasting Menu
Karmakamet Conveyance introduces a second tasting menu on the 14th August 2020, their second since launching in Bangkok in November 2019. The ‘APPRECIATION’ Tasting Menu allows diners to explore taste and emotions, not by written word or story format but by visual imageries juxtaposed to Chef Jutamas “Som” Theantae’s menu creations.
Chef Jutamas “Som” Theantae creates a menu in which we may face our own perceptions. The idea is that sometimes people seek excitement in life and food may give us that excitement, even at the moment they may not feel right about the dish that is in front of them, at that given time. Like looking back at an old picture or listening to a song which may have moved us in one way before may have a different effect when we reflect on it in the present time.
“People can look back and realise that moments in life are happy moments. Maybe one day, come to appreciate what was once thought to be deeply profound feeling, is now providing so much light and happiness. All moments in life will give us something, life is about appreciation. So, all can be good. Experiencing new stuff can be food for the soul. Food is art.”
The Karmakamet Conveyance APPRECIATION Tasting Menu experience could be likened to listening to music without lyrics, or images without words, in the end, it’s not important what the song title or name of the drawing is about. What someone may believe is the artist’s message is actually an interpretation formed from oneself, the same could be said of art.
“Like a painting at a museum, when you really look at it, absorb it, you experience it in your own way, with your own interpretation. This is using your own visual senses to stimulate art. At Karmakamet Conveyance we use taste as a form of experiencing art.”
Chef’s Jutamas “Som” Theantae’s message to those who dine at Karmakamet Conveyance is to allow themselves freedom to appreciate the forms and shapes of the images in partnership with the tastes in which she and her team have created.
“It’s ‘food for the soul’, people can just enjoy it. The picture, what does it mean? The name? What does it mean? Because it’s supposed to be all about me, and they can not understand all about me, they have to think about themselves, they can have their own moments. I hope it will be fruitful and that they will enjoy themselves dining at Karmakamet Conveyance.”
(All quotes by Chef Jutamas “Som” Theantae)
Taste can be very subjective, it depends greatly on each person’s experience, upbringing and background. So the benchmark we use in deciding which dish or menu is right to service us, is love and happiness. – Chef Jutamas “Som” Theantae
