If you missed out last year, A Taste of Iceland is back again and looking better than ever. Taking place in one of the finest Boston restaurants
, Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks, you can sample food prepared by guest chef Hákon Már Örvarsson, World Culinary Cup Winner and coach at the Bocuse d’Or and World Culinary Cup. He has collaborated with Eastern Standard’s Chef Matthew Audette to prepare an authentic Icelandic menu.
The two chefs have designed a four-course menu that will showcase Nordic cuisine to Boston-area diners. In addition, the restaurant will feature a custom-made Reyka Vodka cocktail. The beverage was created by Eastern Standard Bar Director Jackson Cannon and dubbed “Iceland’s Bell." Named for the work of Nobel-prize winning Icelandic author Halldor Laxness, this savory sour hints at flavors of crowberry, rhubarb, sea salt and wild thyme in harmony with the pure minerality of Reyka Icelandic Vodka.
The Icelandic menu is available for $65 per person and includes:
Cold Smoked Filet of Icelandic Arctic Char. Served with Grainy Mustard Crčme Fraiche, Dill Oil and Icelandic Rye bread.
Grilled Icelandic Langoustine Tails
Sprinkled with Grinded Söl (Icelandic Seaweed). Served in Garlic Butter on Top of Creamy Mousseline Potatoes, Fresh Herbs and Tomato-Shallot Dressing
