Reviews

"A delicious and informative lunch"

"Our host was a lot of fun, passionate about cheese, and very informative. We learned about skyr, cheese and their history in Iceland.
We got to sample a variety of cheeses, along with accompaniments, and it was delicious. 
I would definitely recommend it to family and friends."

"Special lunch"

"I didn't know that there is anything special about cheese in Iceland.
When I saw that Creative Iceland offered a cheese tasting, I thought it was worth exploring. It certainly was. There seem to be many unique aspects of Iceland and the story of cheese (and skyr) is one of these. The cheese tasting, actually a cheese lunch (including other special food of the country) was an opportunity to learn much about the country. Eirny, the hostess, is very knowledgeable not only about cheese and skyr, but about her country. An all around learning experience and culinary delight.
I would definitely recommend it to family and friends."
