This month’s box is a tribute to Iceland, the land of Vikings, heroic sagas, and extreme environmental contrasts. Therefore, a culinary heritage of striking flavors is not (that) surprising. It is during their coffee break, Kaffi, that the Icelandic indulge in glutenous sweets such as gingerbread, Piparkökur, or pastries. Kaffi is considered an essential part of the day to socialize and indulge in the moment.
Due to its costal nature, dishes such as fermented shark or grilled puffin are specialities, but not necessities, with many Icelandics opting stick with warmer flavors. With comforting spices like Fjórir Krydd, a dish wakes up like a dark winter forgotten under summer’s midnight sun. And with strong people, come strong spices. Black licorice, lakkrís, as with the rest of Scandinavia, is found everywhere, from the candy to the liquor to the salt. Iceland has taken salted licorice a step further and added a layer of chocolate. It is unique and highly addictive. Skål! (That’s the Icelandic cheers.)
