“I met Sigurgeir, the executive chef when we were cooking together for a private party some time ago. He told me his story and shared his admiration for what we’ve done at Slippurinn in the last years and how he was slowly turning Bryggjan restaurant in Akureyri into a place of higher quality than it used to be. Then the idea was born that we would cook together food from Slippurinn using our fresh ingredients and offer in Akureyri. In the process, I’ll be presenting my new book Slippurinn: recipes and stories from Iceland,” says Gísli Matthías about the pop up. He says he will bring some of the ingredients with him from the Westman Islands, but also use fresh produce from the immediate surroundings in the north.

The pop up event will be held this Thursday November 10th and Friday November 11 th. .
