Dinner With An Icelandic Artist

    What to Expect
    I invite you to come and eat with us. We agree on the menu depending on the day of the week which consists of a starter, main course and dessert. I can adapt the dishes for vegetarians and those who eat fish.
    Sample dinner menu:
    Starter: smoked trout, home baked leavened bread, onion, spice and sour cream. The smoked trout is a very traditional dish in Iceland for events or ceremonies.
    Main course: slow cooked lamb with vegetables, sweet potatoes, carrots, onions and aubergine. The meat tastes just like my mother did to cook it, but she had potatoes peas and red cabbage. The slow cooked lamb is offered for groups with 4 guests minimum.
    Dessert: vanilla skyr, blueberries and kino with some cream. Skyr is very Icelandic with blue berries, kino is from South America. I add some sugar and cinnamon. It will give you an idea of the natural curiosity of one Icelander.
    There are options on the menu such us pasta with smoked salmon alla carbonara, chicken from the oven, Indian vegetable dishes or, the traditional Icelandic meat soup.
    Visit us, I will show you my house, my art, tell you how is like to be an artist in Iceland, the history and present times of the neighborhood and anything else that a delicious food and great company could bring to the table. I look forward to welcoming you to my home.
    About the host
    I live and work as an artist in downtown Reykjavik since I finished my studies in Reykjavik and Amsterdam in the year 1984. I've worked in oil painting, watercolor, art prints and digital photos. I've been involved in a number of exhibitions in Iceland and abroad.
    Now, I combined my two passions: painting and cooking.

    Dadi and his wife were gracious and welcoming. They were very patient and answered our many questions regarding Iceland history, traditions and what daily life is like in Iceland. The meal was simple but delicious!! The homemade bread was really special.

    Dadi was a great host, and it was a pleasure to be a guest in his private house. I enjoy the typical Icleand meal a lot and it was great to share some time with interesting people from around the word.
