This week on A Taste of the Past, host Linda Pelaccio is taking listeners on a journey to Iceland! Welcoming guest Jody Eddy, author of the new cookbook “North: The New Nordic Cuisine of Iceland,” to chat about one of the most beautiful and untouched places on Earth and its utterly unique and captivating food scene. Characterized by its distinctive indigenous ingredients, traditional farmers and artisanal producers, and wildly creative chefs and restaurants, Jody shares intriguing details of the Icelandic plate featuring chef Gunnar Gíslason’s Restaurant Dill. This book is Gíslason’s wonderfully personal debut: equal parts recipe book and culinary odyssey, offering 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. Tune in for highlights and more from Jody! This program was brought to you by Bonnie Plants.

“One thing that maybe confuses people about Nordic cuisine is, well, what is it? It’s just about appreciating the place, the ingredients and traditions.”
