Reykjavik’s Food & Fun Festival

Submitted by on February 24, 2015 – 8:49 amNo Comment

iceland_reykjavik_food-and-funChefs from the United States, Scandinavia and the rest of Europe will join forces with Iceland’s best restaurants for the Food & Fun Festival set for February 25 through March 1, 2015, in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city.

This year’s competitors include Hussein Mustapha, chef de cuisine at Mielcke & Hurtigkarl, a “conceptual gourmet” restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark; Adam Dahlberg from Adam & Albin Matstudio, a “gastronomic hotspot” in Stockholm, Sweden; Robin Gill of The Dairy and The Manor in London, England, and James Beard Award winner Douglas Rodriguez from the U.S.

Each chef is assigned to one of the participating restaurants, where they prepare a special menu consisting only of Icelandic ingredients. The menu is then presented by the chefs to the public during the festival week. Among the restaurants hosting festival events this year are Dill, Apotek, Kjallarinn, Lava at the Blue Lagoon and Smurstodin.

On the last day of the festival, the chefs compete head-to-head with three courses, again all made solely with Iceland ingredients, such as Arctic char, grass-fed lamb, fresh caught cod and haddock, local plum tomatoes from a geothermal greenhouse, and an Icelandic yogurt called skyr.

Food & Fun 2015 is sponsored by its co-founder Icelandair, The City of Reykjavik, Promote Iceland and Iceland Naturally.
