Iceland Cuisine and Food




Icelandic Lamb Stew
There is a recipe for this soup in almost every Icelandic home. The traditional stew is made for special purposes. Almost every house has a different recipe for this meal, being a popular dish.


Iceland Moss Soup
Iceland moss is very versatile. In spite of the name, it isn't a moss at all. It's used in cosmetics, medicines and nutritional supplements, and as food. In olden times it was also used for colouring wool. In modern times, it is also used as a flavouring for a special food. This soup is nourishing and tasty.


Danish Christmas Pudding
The name sounds French, and maybe it is, originally. But the Danish eat this as dessert at Christmas. In some Icelandic households it is served instead of rice pudding at Christmas.


Rhubarb Porridge
Rhubarb grows in almost every vegetable garden in Iceland, right alongside the potatoes. In the summer, it is mostly used for soup and "grautur" (thick soup-something like porridge). It is preserved mostly as jam, but it also freezes well. There are many homes where rhubarb soup or porridge is eaten throughout the winter. It is also good for desserts and chutneys, and it makes excellent wine.
