When I have guests over from abroad, I am often asked about the Icelandic food culture. What is traditional Icelandic food, and what defines Icelandic cooking?
For me, it's hands down the Icelandic lamb. Of course, people eat lamb all over the world, but the Icelandic lamb tastes different somehow. Baked, grilled, or roasted, it's simply the best. But if you want something traditional, you make soup.
