POMKOMMERS

POMKOMMERS

When I moved to Rotterdam I ate my first Pom sandwich. For me, Rotterdam is inextricable linked to Surinam ‘toko’s’ (a toko is a little food shop). For an exhibition in the Historical museum I showed the map of Rotterdam by the
location of Toko’s in every street. The letters on the pom-stuffed cucumbers shape the names of different Rotterdam toko’s. The formed names give shape to the Rotterdam streets while the tablecloth functions as a map. Every toko has it’s own (family) pom recipe. Eating different ‘pomkommers’ is having your own Rotterdam pomtasting.
