"There ain´t no such thing as wrong food. "
Sean Stewart

Truer words were never spoken, especially when it comes to the unique dishes that dominate Iceland´s food culture. In this third book of the "50 Crazy..."series (including 50 Crazy Things To Do In Iceland and 50 Crazy Romantic Things To Do In Iceland), you´ll be introduced to some of the country´s strangest and most challenging foods, as well as many that are just plain delicious.

In addition to being an enthusiastic gourmand, Snæfríður Ingadóttir is a well-known journalist who´s written countless articles on Iceland´s people and culture. Photographer Þorvaldur Örn Kristmundsson provides the accompanying images to this fascinating and funny taste-tour through the Land of Fire and Ice.

 

"For Icelanders, it is pretty normal to swim in the Atlantic Ocean or eat a fermented skate, but the genaral tourist would probably think of it as the perfect psychosis. To have sexual intercourse with elves is more unusual, and what would a normal person think of donating a precious object to the Icelandic Phallus Museum? When author, Snæfríður Ingadóttir, is asked about the idea, she says that she always wanted to make a tourist book which was light and entertaining. When she herself is a tourist, she does not want to do what every other tourist does - she personally likes to do what locals do. In her Crazy book series, she points out what is obvious and natural to all Icelanders, but to the guests-eye might seem rather crazy . Lots of crazy stuff can be done in Iceland."
