Food and Fun Festival with an American Twist

I attended the launch of this year’s Reykjavik Food and Fun Festival, an event designed to highlight Icelandic cuisine, but also to bring together chefs from all over the world. It was great to meet the huge American contingent participating at this event. We have renowned chefs from Los Angeles, Washington DC, Denver, New York, and a few other places. I’ll be cheering for all of them as they compete with their colleagues from other countries. The great benefit of this program is that Americans bring a bit from their homes to share with Icelanders and they take home a bit of Iceland with them. Cuisine is indeed an international language.
