The Icelandic chef Gísli Matthías Auðunsson (Slippurinn and Matur og Drykkur) is again taking his food outside of Iceland. This time it is London that gets to sample the cooking of the north.
He is running a popup in London at the Carousel for two weeks and is an event that should not be missed.
We shoot some images just before he left for him to have some images to show the dinners what to be expected and I am really a big fan of the combination of the rough and at the same time exquisite compositions both in flavour and looks that Gisli works with.
If you are a fan of nordic cooking or not, this is an flavour explosion you should not miss out on.
Here is a sample of the menu.
Dried Cod chips, caramilized whey butter and pickled seaweed.
Double smoked lamb with buttermilk and nutmeg.
Arctic char smoked in sheep’s dung, burnt flatbread, horseradish and roes ( yes you read that right, but it really tastes great 😉 ).
Lamb cured in arctic thyme with goat cheese and sunchokes.
Langoustine with seatruffles, dill and capelin roes
Cod head braised in chicken stock, sugarkelp and honey.
Lovage potato salat.
Skyr, oats and sorrel.
Kleina and caramilized whey custard
