MEET THE NATIVES
LOCAL HABITS AND LOCAL FOOD
THE STORY OF ICELAND FROM THE VIKINGS TO MODERN TIMES THROUGH FOOD AND FUN
In this entertaining workshop in Reykjavik you´ll learn about the history of Iceland, the Viking settlers and the origin of the Sagas, while getting familiar with the Icelandic name system and some common phrases in the "unpronounceable" Icelandic language. All this together with assortment of traditional Icelandic dishes.
We believe the best way to learn about culture and history is through food. To taste traditional Icelandic dishes, make yourself the unique Icelandic pancakes, and talk about the history of bread, herbs, fermented shark and dried fish give insight into the survival of the Icelandic nation throughout the centuries.
What did the Vikings eat? How did their eating habits change when they moved to Iceland? What makes the Icelandic lamb meat so special? How did all these "strange" dishes come about? Here you get all the answers from the natives themselves.
