Delicious Iceland celebrates the luscious cuisine and dazzling natural beauty of one of the most memorable places on Earth. Chef Völundur Snær Völundarson has worked in top restaurants all over the world, from Iceland and France to Chicago and the Bahamas.
In the book he shares his innovative recipes and, along with fellow writer Haukur Ágústsson, gives an engaging overview of Iceland’s traditional food culture with many recipes based on fish and game. And he had done so with a stunning mixture of his Icelandic heritage and expanded culinary talents; he roasts venison over molten lava flowing from fiery volcanoes, poaches Atlantic salmon over steaming geysers and has scaled sheer, rocky sea cliffs gathering sea bird eggs to turn them into fantastic dishes.
Through Hreinn Hreinsson’s gorgeous photographs, the reader can experience these remarkable dishes, as well as the stunning landscape and wildlife of Volundarson’s beloved Land of Fire and Ice.
Volundarson has a reverence for the ingredients of his native cuisine which he prepares and presents simply to highlight their inherent flavour and beauty.
Delicious Iceland: Tales of Unique Northern Delicacies is more than a cookbook; it’s also a glorious culinary and cultural tour of Iceland.
This book is ideal for those looking for something a little different.
