Meals in Iceland

2015-05

During the tour with Portfolios In A Week with IAmIceland.is we got some interesting feedback from participants. One said, "this is not a photo tour, it is a food tour with photo options".

Axel Oskarsson our Icelandic guide is also a Cordon Bleu trained chef, so this is probably not a big surprise. On this tour, Axel was our cook for 4 of the evenings as we got to try local specialties. 

Iconnu Meals

One of the delights of staying at the Iconnu Lodge in the Yukon is the quality of the food. I was able to work with chef Jason to capture many of the meals that we enjoyed.
