A puffin dessert

We just added a delicious Puffin taster to The Reykjavik Food Lovers tour

Iceland is the largest Atlantic puffin colony in the world with around 66% of the total puffin stock. They have been hunted for centuries by Icelanders and have been an important food source.

We like them best when they are smoked but they can also be salted or boiled in a milk sauce.

Gordon Ramsey got his nose bitten by one when trying to hunt them. You can watch that here if you feel like having a good laugh 🙂

You can get your taste of Puffin with us on our Food Tour and/or grab a bite in some of the traditional Icelandic Restaurants.
