Annually, the city of Reykjavik holds Iceland’s largest food festival and competition. I’ve had the pleasure of competing at this event twice where 17 top chefs around the world come to take over a restaurant and compete for 5 days. Iceland for me, definitely ranks amongst one of the most beautiful places in the world. I was lucky enough to be able to experience seeing some things that many will never have the opportunity to – standing on the beach with a group of chefs from all over the world, gazing up at the sky in awe over the Northern Lights will be something I’ll never forget. Iceland offered many of these experiences along with a cutting edge, new Nordic cuisine style of food.
