Cook and Dine is a distinctive opportunity to participate in preparing and enjoying a good Icelandic style 3-course gourmet meal with fresh local ingredients under the supervision of skilled and entertaining chefs. Afterwards there is plenty of time to enjoy the result in relaxing atmosphere accompanied by a well-earned glass of wine. It’s is acooking class, tasting session and gourmet meal, all in one package!

For the Cook and Dine workshop we bring you to our friends at Salt Eldhús (e. Salt Kitchen) to enjoy an Icelandic cooking class, tasting session and gourmet meal. Salt Eldhús has offered varied cooking lessons to Icelanders and foreign visitors since 2012. We love Salt Eldhús because it employs a select group of trained chefs and passionate gourmet cooks and offers intimate and inviting environment for their guests. Owner and CEO of Salt Eldhus is Sirrý, a chef, food-writer and former editor-in-chief at the leading Icelandic food & wine magazine Gestgjafinn.

The approach is hands-on and interactive allowing you to immerse yourself into Icelandic cuisine, food traditions and culture. Icelandic fish and free roaming lamb take center stage in our Icelandic style cooking classes. Furthermore, you will sample local specialties such as home made Icelandic rye bread, dung smoked Arctic char, dried Atlantic wolffish, smoked free-roaming lamb and selected local beer. The class does not require any prior culinary experience and is enjoyable for gourmet cooks and novices alike
