Reviews

"A must do when in Reykjavik"

"To put it simply, this was one of the best events we've done travelling abroad. Our host was so engaging and wonderfully knowledgeable, taking us through the history of Iceland via the dairy industry and cheese creation. You will not go hungry, as there was more food on the table than we could have possibly eaten."

"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."
