Phaidon - Slippurinn by Gisli Matt (Signed Copy)
Chef Gísli Matt built Slippurinn with his family in a historic small town on the island of Heimaey, whose landscape was changed forever by a lava flow from the 1973 eruption of Eldfell volcano.
In this most incredible environment, where plants grow on mountains created out of lava, Gísli created a menu that both respects the local and traditional methods while also pushing the boundaries of contemporary cuisine. He has captured the attention of the world’s culinary cognoscenti, including Ruth Reichl and Diana Henry among others, and this, Gísli’s first book, reflects his extensive research into traditional Icelandic dishes to preserve local culinary knowledge while applying a modern approach for a cuisine to be enjoyed by locals and international foodies.
Slippurinn takes the reader right to the heart of his fascinating culinary world and island life. A book for lovers of all things Nordic and for food lovers the world over.
