Two Tasty Tales From Museum of Broken Relationships’ Brilliant Project

Zagreb, May 13 – As part of the Museum of Broken Relationships’ art project Zagreb’s Upper Town: Change of Heart on Sunday, May 15, the Upper Town will host two interesting gastronomic projects – The Little Market from the Attic and Table, lay yourself!.

Partaking in the Change of Heart project, The Little Market from the Attic will be held at the Vranyczany meadow transforming it for a day into a place of encounters, mingling, tastings and exchange of organic food, kindness and creativity. All those interested in healthy grocery shopping with a view of the city can visit the market between 10 am and 5 pm where they will be welcomed by small producers of local and organic food from various regions of Croatia.

Some of the manifold organic groceries available for tasting and purchase are green vegetables grown on eco farms, asparagus, strawberries, black garlic, cow and goat’s cheese, aronia berry juice, ghee butter and GheeKiriki, eco honey, home-made vegeta, olive oil, Indian specialities, Super Hero butter, seedlings, home-made ashwaganda, mandarin marmalade, tofu and seitan.

In addition, four small tables for two will be laid at four secret locations where Irina Ban and Bistro Fajn will prepare four traditional Zagreb dishes with a modern twist. By calling a special radio programme Upper Town visitors will get the chance to win a table at 1 pm, 2.30 pm, 4 pm and 5.30 pm. Each location will serve a single dish, and the lucky winners will get the chance to taste the Bistro Fajn’s Sweet’n’Fajn duck with roast beetroot and orzo, (F)eingemachtes soup, Strudel with Fajn cream and Fajn-štrukle with celery garnish. Naturally, these fine dishes will be accompanied by fine wines.

The prize will be up for grabs for all listeners of The Radio That Once Was which will air exclusively for a day in the Upper Town area on 93.9Mhz as part of the Change of Heart project marking the 90th anniversary of the Croatian Radio.

Change of Heart will introduce a series of creative workshops and interventions with the aim of evoking memories related to the Upper Town spaces juxtaposing their present and their past. The mapping of intimate stories and experiences will serve as a reminder that the Upper Town is far more than a tourist attraction or a political hub.

This following Sunday all are invited to take part in renewing the relationship between Zagreb’s inhabitants and its heart-shaped centre; to go to the (Little) market; to take a walk with Barica who will reveal the Upper Town’s big secrets; to exchange memories for flowers at Sjećarnica set up as an homage to Floraart, first held in the Upper Town in 1966; to visit the exhibition Marija Braut’s Sound Images, recreating the bygone spirit of the Upper Town at a time when its streets were full and its life force was bohemian; to learn what Krleža and Matoš would have said to one another had they ever met; and also to connect with others by jointly raising their heartbeat while taking part in the activities of the Social Muscle Club.
