Dill: The New Nordic Cooking of Iceland

I am currently collaborating with the chef Gunnar Karl Gislason of Dill in Reykjavik on a cookbook project in Iceland profiling this extraordinary nation’s traditional food producers. Featuring Gunnar’s contemporary recipes, photography by Evan Sung, and a foreword by Rene Redzepi, The New Nordic Cooking of Iceland will be published by Ten Speed Press in the fall of 2014.

Here’s recent coverage of an event Gunnar and I hosted with chef Katie Button of the restaurant Curate in Asheville and a link to Gunnar’s recent appearance on the Martha Stewart Show.
