    How to Cook dishes from Iceland


    Iceland Iceland is an island in the Atlantic Ocean located between Europe and Greenland. The island has many links with Scandinavia, which began with early settlement by Norwegians in the 9th century.

    Some popular Icelandic recipes and dishes include:
    • Bjugu - Smoked sausage.

    • Fresh fish - The waters around Iceland are rich with many types of fish, and fresh fish are eaten all year round. These include haddock, halibut, herring, plaice and shrimp.

    • Hákal - Fermented meat from the basking shark. It has a strong pungent smell and is a very much an acquired taste.

    • Hamborgarhryggur - Salted pork ribs.

    • Hangikjöt - Smoked lamb or mutton. It is cut into slices which are eaten on bread, or eaten with bechamel (white) sauce, green peas, and potatoes.

    • Jólagrautur - A traditional dessert eaten at Christmas. It is made from rice pudding with raisins, cinnamon and sugar.

    • Laufabrauo - A tradition bread, originally from northern Iceland, but now common throughout the country. It comes in thin round flat cakes which are fried, and is often eaten during the Christmas period.

    • Skyr - A type of strained fresh cheese that is made from skimmed milk. It is unique to Iceland. No flavors are traditionally added to skyr, but instead it is mixed with other foods, such as porridge for breakfast, or with fruit for dessert. Today, however many commercial manufacturers skyr do flavor their product with berries or vanilla.

    An unprecedented look into the food and culture of Iceland, from Iceland's premier chef and the owner of Reykjavík's Restaurant Dill.

    Iceland is known for being one of the most beautiful and untouched places on earth, and a burgeoning destination for travelers lured by its striking landscapes and vibrant culture. Iceland is also home to an utterly unique and captivating food scene, characterized by its distinctive indigenous ingredients, traditional farmers and artisanal producers, and wildly creative chefs and restaurants. 

    Perhaps no Icelandic restaurant is as well-loved and critically lauded as chef Gunnar Gíslason’s Restaurant Dill, which opened in Reykjavík’s historic Nordic House in 2009. North is Gíslason’s wonderfully personal debut: equal parts recipe book and culinary odyssey, it offers an unparalleled look into a star chef’s creative process. But more than just a collection of recipes, North is also a celebration of Iceland itself—the inspiring traditions, stories, and people who make the island nation unlike any other place in the world.

    Contemporary Nordic Dishes Inspired by Tradition

    In From the North, Katrín Björk celebrates the flavors of her childhood with fresh ingredients and unique twists. Her modern techniques make traditional Nordic cooking simple and approachable, no matter how far south your kitchen.

    This versatile collection can be used for unique lunches, casual dinners or elegant holiday meals. The Rack of Lamb with Seaweed and Almond Crust combines the cozy comfort of Katrín’s familial kitchen with the standout taste of the Nordic Seas. Culinary adventurers won’t need a parka to experience Danish Crackling Pork with a side of Sugar- Glazed Potatoes. Try stunning fish and shellfish dishes like Pan-Fried Haddock, updated with tangy grilled rhubarb and rosemary, or Blue Mussels simmered in a Nordic white ale and brightened with fresh fennel. Celebrate the summer months with Icelandic Skyr Cake, made with traditional thick yogurt and scattered with fresh berries; and there’s nothing better than Whole Roasted Goose with Prunes, Apples and Cinnamon to bring a feeling of hygge to your holiday table.

    With helpful tips on how to select the freshest fish, preserve ingredients safely and bake the rustic bread essential to any Nordic meal, it’s easy to make these dishes your own. Though Katrín isn’t afraid to break a few rules in the name of convenience and flavor, her recipes remain rooted in the connection to nature and family that is at the heart of Nordic life.

    Selected as one of the New York Times best cookbooks of Fall 2018

    This alluring, elegant cookbook by Nevada Berg, one of today's most celebrated food bloggers, features recipes and beautifully photographed dishes that delve into the heart of Norwegian food culture.


    Named by Saveur magazine as the 2016 Blog of the Year and Best New Voice, North Wild Kitchen and its author Nevada Berg have become one of the best-known voices of Norwegian cooking around the world. Written from her 17th-century mountain farm in rural Norway, Nevada Berg's blog and Instagram feed are brimming with gorgeous--and achievable--ideas for home cooking and entertaining. Berg is a self-taught cook, and her simple and charming approach focuses on seasonal food prepared without a lot of fuss. With dozens of mouthwatering recipes for Norwegian-inspired dishes, this book features equally enticing photography of the food and the country's landscape. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Norwegian food culture--foraging, fishing, and farming; hunting, harvesting, and camping; baking, grilling, and frying. Along the way, Berg comments on the unique pleasures of Nordic life as she tends to her chickens, explores the outdoors, or sets a welcoming table. Berg is both inviting and entertaining as she weaves her own experiences into each recipe, delivering a beautiful collection of good food and great living from the heart of Norway.
