BREAKING THE ICE
Welcome to GastroShark's independent guide to food & wine in Iceland
The Gastro's Guide to Good Eating and Drinking in Iceland
Wine; Sharky patrols 'Rikid' (the state alcohol store) and lets you know about the best value wines to be found in Iceland. Some wines are fantastic value for money, most are not. Some months there are bargain offers to be had and Sharky will show you which wines to stock up on. You can also learn some wine basics; like how to tell a Pinot Noir from a Shiraz and what wine is best to serve with asparagus.
Reykjavik Restaurant Reviews; As time goes by the GastroShark will be getting his jaws into some Reykjavik restaurants and posting the reviews.
Recipes; here Sharky shares some quick and easy recipes which make affordable gastronomic feasts - yes, it is possible, even in Iceland.
Escape Iceland; if the weather gets just too bad and the price of wine too high, take a weekend break to London armed with Sharky's list of good restaurant and bar recommendations. There's also a list of foods you can bring back into the country to warm up your ice-kitchen.
As with all good guests, don't forget to sign Sharky's guestbook!
