Description

Slippurinn: Recipes and Stories from Iceland, published by Phaidon, is the debut book of Icelandic chef Gísli Matt, the founder of Slippurinn restaurant located on the small island of Heimaey. Slippurinn has received acclaim for its innovative menu that fuses a modern approach with respect for local traditions and ingredients, and for the book, Gísli Matt has written down both some of his most interesting recipes as well as tales of island life for all foodies and fans of the Nordic way of life to enjoy.

Chef Gísli Matt built Slippurinn with his family in a historic shipyard building of a small town whose landscape was changed forever by the lava flow from a 1973 erupted volcano. In this most incredible environment, where plants grow on mountains created out of lava, Gísli created a menu that both respects the local and traditional and pushes boundaries of contemporary cuisine. Gísli is forging his own way in gastronomy today. He has captured the attention of the world’s culinary cognoscenti, including Ruth Reichl and Diana Henry among others, and this, Gísli’s first book, reflects his extensive research into traditional Icelandic dishes to preserve local culinary knowledge while applying a modern approach for a cuisine to be enjoyed by locals and international foodies. It takes the reader right to the heart of his fascinating culinary world and island life. A book for lovers of all things Nordic and for food lovers the world over.
