Cool Cuisine

“Think Nordic but even nicer…” enthused Diana Henry in the Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine (12 January 2014), following a trip to Reykjavik to check out the food.  “The shellfish and lamb are the best I’ve ever tasted.” In the decade since the much-lauded, two-Michelin-starred Noma opened in Copenhagen, and with Icelandic chef Agnar Sverrisson expanding his empire in London, Scandinavian […]

Earth cooking

Baking food in the ground is part of Iceland’s cooking history and ‘hot-spring’ specialities have become a popular modern addition to many a restaurant and hotel menu. During my travels in Iceland, I’ve been lucky enough to sit on the red lava slopes of the Eldfell volcano and eat, straight from the tin, steaming ginger bread baked there in the […]

How to find real Icelandic Cheese

Like all the best things about Iceland, home produced Icelandic cheese doesn’t generally leave the country, you just have to go there to. At Keflavík airport there’s a small selection of foil wrapped soft cheeses on sale, but if this is the sum total of your cheese experience at your point of departure, there’s so much that you’ll have missed!  […]

How to make a volcano cake

Here's an idea for home cooking with some Geography! It's an experimental recipe rather like the real thing, can you predict where the lava will start to flow when the eruption begins? The steps for making the cake are based on a recipe I found in Iceland some years ago, and there's masses of scope to make create something really spectacular!

Icelandic Food Heroes at London’s Borough Market
