An unprecedented look into the food and culture of Iceland, from Iceland's premier chef and the owner of Reykjavik's Restaurant Dill. Iceland is known for being one of the most beautiful and untouched places on earth, and a burgeoning destination for travelers lured by its striking landscapes and vibrant culture. Iceland is also home to an utterly unique and captivating food scene, characterized by its distinctive indigenous ingredients, traditional farmers and artisanal producers, and wildly creative chefs and restaurants. Perhaps no Icelandic restaurant is as well-loved and critically lauded as chef Gunnar Gislason's Restaurant Dill, which opened in Reykjavik's historic Nordic House in 2009. North is Gislason's wonderfully personal debut: equal parts recipe book and culinary odyssey, it offers an unparalleled look into a star chef's creative process. But more than just a collection of recipes, North is also a celebration of Iceland itself—the inspiring traditions, stories, and people who make the island nation unlike any other place in the world.
