The format is relaxed and informal and includes Icelandic history, food traditions and culture, some language familiarisation and sharing a meal which always involves making and eating pancakes in the Icelandic way.  If you choose an afternoon for this, then the traditional Icelandic afternoon tea includes geothermal spring bread, home baked cakes and sheep’s head with tea coffee and Icelandic beer.  During tea, you’ll find out about the history of cakes and bread in Iceland, where oven baking was not available until relatively recently.
