North: The New Nordic Cuisine of Iceland by Jody Eddy, Gunnar Karl Gíslason
English | ISBN: 1607744988 | 2014 | EPUB | 352 pages | 41 MB
An unprecedented look into the food and culture of Iceland, from Icelands premier chef and the owner of Reykjavíks Restaurant Dill.
Iceland is known for being one of the most beautiful and untouched places on earth, and a burgeoning destination for travelers lured by its striking landscapes and vibrant culture. Iceland is also home to an utterly unique and captivating food scene, characterized by its distinctive indigenous ingredients, traditional farmers and artisanal producers, and wildly creative chefs and restaurants.
Perhaps no Icelandic restaurant is as well-loved and critically lauded as chef Gunnar Gíslasons Restaurant Dill, which opened in Reykjavíks historic Nordic House in 2009. North is Gíslasons wonderfully personal debut: equal parts recipe book and culinary odyssey, it offers an unparalleled look into a star chefs creative process. But more than just a collection of recipes, North is also a celebration of Iceland itself--the inspiring traditions, stories, and people who make the island nation unlike any other place in the world.
