If you combine food and fun you usually always end up with a great meal, and that will most certainly be the case at Reykjavik’s Food and Fun Festival, running from February 26th until March 2nd.
Seventeen of the Icelandic capital’s hottest restaurants are participating in this year’s edition and each restaurant’s Food and Fun set menu will cost 7,990 Icelandic Krona (ISK) for the duration of the festival.
“Let’s eat and be merry.
Food and Fun mixes outstanding culinary skills, fresh natural ingredients, Icelandic outdoor adventure and the world-famous Reykjavik nightlife to create the ultimate recipe for fun.
The core element of the festival involves world-acclaimed chefs collaborating with Reykjavik’s finest restaurants. Each chef is assigned to one of the participating restaurants, where they prepare a special menu crafted from Icelandic ingredients only, commonly held to be the best in the world by Icelanders. The menus are presented at all the restaurants for an entire week.
In addition, the chefs themselves are on site for three nights during the festival week. The second element of the festival is the chef competition, which takes place on the last day of the festival. The chefs compete by making three courses, made out of only Icelandic ingredients.”
