Horta and Mash, Andrew Rewald.

Recipe: Horta & Mashed Potato by Andrew Rewald

Horta is the Greek name for a meal of foraged wild greens popular in rural Mediterranean cultures. It is made from any seasonal edible plant, boiled into a pulp-like broth. Known as a soothing medicinal comfort food, the residual bitter liquid is prized by the elderly as a restorative broth. A generous dose of fruity virgin olive oil and lemon juice balances the leafy bitterness.

NIRIN AT HOME | Hybrid Plant Exquisite Corpse Drawing

Each of our education packs will include an at home activity aimed at repurposing, reusing or recycling items found around the home. This week, the team at the National Art School have prepared a drawing activity.

NIRIN AT HOME | Hybrid Plant Exquisite Corpse Drawing

An ‘exquisite corpse’ is a drawing game developed by artists in the Surrealism movement. A drawing is passed around between a group of people, folding and hiding sections for others to complete, so that when unfolded produces a bizarre, unexpected and wacky artwork. Learn more about them here.
