Yum! Thanks for the splendid & delicious pics!
This is my fave video of all time: Inspired by Iceland
It really is such a beautiful place. I was lucky to have lived there as a child, but wish I would have been a bit older so I could have experienced more.
Fantastic! Iceland has long been on my short list of places to go next. Food looks awesome - I would so absolutely eat all of that. I spent a lot of time in the very rural German villages in my childhood, and if you are used to eating some of that, you are good to go in Iceland for the most part!
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
Sjavargrillid , a Chef who worked as part of his training at Aggi Sverrisson's London restaurant Texture. It was fantastic food.
My food ... well, it's just what I knock up in the kitchen.
Yeah ... I'd finished a jar of pickled beetroot and thought it a shame to throw the remaining liquid away without doing something with it. In went a couple of eggs and topped up with water. Left for a few hours ... coloured eggs!
Icelands new range of ready meals have come on a long way since the last time I went in there! Not sure about whale or shag though. Shag must have been incredibly fishy tasting?
I'd love to go to Iceland (the country). They have gyr falcon, harlequin duck and Barrow's goldeneye (another duck) plus lots of wild areas where I bet no one has ever climbed. And the sea kayaking is meant to be fantastic too!
But you can keep Bjork!!!
... I like Bjork, so thank you ... I'll keep her.
Whale was very much like beef with a curious smoked flavour. Yes, shag was very fishy ... odd to eat meat that tasted like that.
Icelanders also do a "haggis" which is somewhere between Scots haggis and black pudding. I didn't get a chance to try any while I was there, though.
I miss Iceland. I went there for a week in the summer as a kid, and I've always wanted to go back. Maybe spend a full year or so. We were lucky with the weather, but still - to anyone who want to go there, I say do it. It is incredibly beautiful. In the area where I was, they had these huge fields of blue lupin flowers, to bind the loose sand and make the soil easier to grow in for the grass - they grew on the mountains in such amounts that they looked almost like rivers. It was pretty magical.
Funnily, though.. food-wise, what I remember most were their ice cream. Their soft ice cream were the best I've ever tasted, even when I bought it from places where'd you expect it to be.. well... commercial.

Just another excuse to go back pjgh - although I dont think places like Iceland need much of an excuse.
