Iceland is one of the world’s last great wild sanctuaries with dramatic lava ﬁelds, spectacular, glistening glaciers, bubbling hot springs, and lush green pastures. Yes, it’s cold, but so is ice cream and a host of other fabulous things in life. And what’s more, the country has quite the sensational little secret: extraordinary cuisine. The food is fresh, unique and intensely satisfying (just look at Erika’s post on skyr below) and the Icelanders’ pursuit of sustainable agriculture and ﬁsheries has built a foundation for their remarkable foods. Iceland’s deeply-imbedded traditions blend well with modern technology — a unique combination applying to its cuisine as well. This mixture of new and old makes for an outstanding and memorable gastronomic experience. Oldways, David Rosengarten and Erna Kaaber invite you to join us on this incredible culinary travel opportunity!
