    What to Expect
    Let's make traditional Icelandic slátur! On a beautiful farm just outside of Reykjavík, you will learn the art of preparing, cooking and eating the most authentic food known to Icelanders. The food in question is a called "Slátur" in Icelandic. There are two types of slátur, and you will make both: blood pudding (blóðmör) and liver sausage (lifrarpylsa).

    The preparing of slátur is a messy, but entertaining affair. The ingredients for slátur are sheep's blood, chopped or minced sheep's fat, sheep's liver, oatmeal and whole milk among other things.

    While our Slátur is boiling, we will also be tasting other traditional Icelandic food like a fermented shark, rye bread, dried fish and sheep pate among other things.

    We will also take some time outside the kitchen, exploring the Hraðastaðir farm.  We will walk around the area and meet the animals that live there.

    Once we get back from our walk around the farm, we sit down to eat the food we prepared and enjoy this unique environment together. Hopefully, you will leave with a full belly and a smile on your face, and with more than a little insight into the culinary practices of this small island of ours.

    Those classes are great. You can cook some trully icelandic food. In the end of classes you can taste it and also some other delicious stuff, like shark meat. But food, however is important, is on second plan. I loved the atmosphere. Classes take place on a real farm with two
