Marmite was invented in the late 19th century, when German scientist Justus von Liebig found out that brewer’s yeast could be concentrated, bottled and eaten. Who would have thought that this extract would achieve such impressive status today in the UK, Australia and New Zealand?
Marmite is to the UK, what Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans are to the US. To celebrate the iconic Marmite brand, these Pop Art inspired printed box canvases and framed prints have been produced, ready to spread out onto your wall. The depiction is retro, but the colours are refreshing. Do you love them or hate them?
*Rare domestic goddess alert*
Marmite is such a versatile product – spread it on your toast, pop it in pasta sauces or make (my favourite) Marmite puff pastry bites: roll out some puff pastry, spread Marmite all over, fold up the pastry, cut into small squares and cook for 10-15mins. Leave out to cool for 10 mins and bingo, party snack sorted.
The Original Marmite Art promotion at ACHICA is on until 7am Wednesday 21st December 2011.
