About The Cook And Dine At An Icelandic Family Home Experience


An Authentic Icelandic Meal

Learn how to prepare 2-3 dishes that are easy to replicate at home. Our kitchen is large and open, and you’ll have the opportunity to try your hand at preparing foods like salmon salad, fresh greens, or dessert.

A typical meal at our table includes slow-roasted meat, often Icelandic lamb which is organic and exclusively pasture-raised, local fish like Atlantic salmon that is served raw, smoked or baked, potato dishes, and bright, fresh vegetables.

We love to cook at home and good cooking has been in the family for generations. A home cooked meal, the food Icelanders eat at home, is completely different from what is found in local restaurants. At home, many meat dishes are slow cooked in the oven and are served simply with potatoes and fresh vegetables that are grown in greenhouses using geothermal energy. The greenhouses afford fresh produce year-round, even in the cold, dark winter.

The dishes we would cook and enjoy together at home could vary and therefore change according to seasonal availability. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

We are musicians who love to sing. I am learning opera and my partner sings with two choirs, so don't be surprised if we treat you to a song or two!
