The NEW Foodie Box!
The food culture of Iceland has despite it's "rotten-shark-sheephead" reputation become quite a thing thanks to what many attribute to the "New-Nordic" cuisine awakening.

Reykjavík Grapevine wrote article about the book 2019 when it won the third place at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2019 for desserts. Excerpt from the article:
The book is much more than a collection of recipes (although there are plenty of those). The pictures show the surrounding landscape changing from summer green to winter white, and traditions like the annual sheep round up, the swimming pool coffee club, and the local “day of the accordion.”
It’s a heartfelt tribute to the building, the community, and the town. “That’s the reason we included more than just recipes,” says Isobel. “The funny thing,” adds Janne,“is that locals have started to ship the book out to their relatives and friends elsewhere. The book has become a documentation of life in Þingeyri. We didn’t anticipate that.”
Taste of Iceland is a culinary journey through pure, fresh and sustainable Icelandic cuisine. Leading the way is Úlfar Finnbjörnsson, often nicknamed “the Wild Chef” due to his passion for hunting and all that Icelandic nature has to offer.

We have not found a decent way to send Icelandic skyr or cheese abroad as it heavily depends on refrigeration. But we found this! A local startup that has turned skyr and cheese into delicious snacks! They are healthy, fun, convenient and sustainable.

Geothermal production method since 1753
The unique geothermal production method was first tried in 1753 and has since been carefully preserved in Iceland and Denmark.
