    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.

    Product Description:
    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.

    Kindle Edition

    Traditional Icelandic Food II: A Gastronomic Guide to Iceland
    Product Description:
    Icelanders have survived in Iceland because of the fish in the sea but it hasn't been easy to survive, especially since the nature has been very harsh. This book explains what the Icelanders have been eating in order to survive, the cultural meaning of the food, explanations how the food is prepared and cooked adding related folklore and amusing but practical information in case you want to taste or try cooking yourself. This book, part II, is focusing more on cakes and bread than the first book but it's also focusing on all kinds of traditional food. The book doesn't contain any photos, just explanations and amusing stories about Icelandic food and a few recipes.
    All the stories in this book and the previous one are published in paperback called Traditional Icelandic Food - A Gastronomic Guide to Iceland. The paperback is available in bookstores in Iceland, soon through Amazon as well.
