Nordic ... kept Primal
We had a wonderful trip up to Iceland a week or so ago, via Copenhagen and back through Stockholm.
I've always been big on Nordic food, but this was a trip above and beyond ...
... back home, I'm all fired up and ready to hit the kitchen.
Here's some snaps:
Amuse bouche of parsnip cream ... Icelandic ash salt over.
Icelandic Sheep Soup.

Food porn. You are cruel and malicious :P
Heh, they all look worthwhile preparing myself. Cheers!
Thanks, chaps ...
I think I've always eaten more towards Nordic. I love fish, pickled fish, pickled things ... eggs, smoked salmon, caviar and so on. Iceland completes my visit of all the countries which might be called Nordiscandiwegian. I loved the place! We'll definitely be going back, maybe end of summer.
I have been thinking about taking a trip there. Was all of this great looking food expensive? Makes me so hungry just looking at it.

I wouldn't say any more expensive than any other European capital city. Certainly cheaper than Norway, cheaper than London or Paris, on a par with places like Stockholm. You can find cheaper cafes and you can find really fly restaurants.
