Table d’hôtes en Islande

Posté le : 19 avril 2016

Sur la route entre deux tournages de séquences, nous nous sommes arrêtés à Blönduós au nord-ouest de l’Islande.
Notre fixeur Fridrik nous avait préparé une surprise. Un déjeuner chez Gisli Egill Hrafnsson et sa femme Inga Elsa Bergþórsdóttir. Ils nous ont accueillis en famille et nous ont fait déguster des plats typiques de la région.

J’ai tout spécialement apprécié leur maison très lumineuse qui donne sur la mer. J’ai eu l’impression d’être chez moi. Un joli moment de partage avec les Islandais.
Une bonne adresse que je recommande. Gisli et Inga sont très sympathiques, d’autant qu’ils parlent aussi français.

Inga Elsa Bergþórsdóttir et Gísli Egill Hrafnsson

Ils sont passionnés de gastronomie et ont décidé de communiquer cette passion par l’édition de livres et l’accueil d’hôtes. Tous les étés ils accueillent les touristes dans leur maison d’hôtes. Ils leur font découvrir les plats typiques confectionnés à partir des légumes de leur potager, de la cueillette et de la pêche.
