The Land of Bounty

Ásdís Thoroddsen

The traditional food in Iceland was moulded by harsh nature and the means of storage. The import of raw material was essential but the trade was restricted. Cultural influence from Denmark and USA formed the taste in 20th century but now there are multicultural influences, vegan etc. The Zeitgeist demands that the tradition is redefined as an answer to mass production and globalism.
