Into the North

Into the North–Live well, eat well–the Icelandic way

This book is both a practical cookbook and a culinary history of Iceland, told through recipes that give the reader a glimpse into the daily hardships and unique history that have shaped the cuisine of the country over the last eleven hundred years.

Some of the recipes have roots in traditions that go back many centuries, while others are more recent additions to the family recipe collection, inspired by locally and seasonally available ingredients in Iceland. The reader is invited to take a tour through, the changing seasons, roam the green meadows of the summer countryside, escape into the rugged wilderness, climb volcanoes and glaciers, and sail the rough seas that surround Iceland.
