The Nordic kitchen
The Norden stamps of 2016 are dedicated to Nordic food and what has been termed as the “Nordic kitchen”. In Iceland’s case the focus is on the “Icelandic kitchen”, the stamp featuring Icelandic food ingredients. The history of Icelandic cuisine is rather short and simple. However, an interesting national kitchen has developed – the cuisine being based on excellent ingredients and old traditions. Icelanders have access to fresh and unpolluted ingredients. Little is known about the food and eating habits of Icelanders during the settlement´s first centuries. Settlers brought with them sheep, goats, cattle, pigs, chickens and even ducks.
