View on Iceland: Foodie heaven, Cricket and Capital Controls
Once you finished browsing Iceland Monitor’s wide selection of news, events and features, you might like to have a look at some other Iceland-related material from around the world that we shall be collecting for you weekly.
1. ‘Why Iceland should be your next foodie destination’ – NY Daily News
From the humble hot-dog, through lobster soup, to the sublime lamb, Iceland is – unexpectedly for some – a paradise for lovers of good food. Blakely Trettenero takes readers on a journey of Icelandic food, flavours and spiritual awakening.
2. ‘On with the butter – the story of cricket in Iceland’ – Wisden India
Welcome relief, perhaps, from the football saturation of recent Icelandic sports news, is Nisha Shetty’s piece on cricket in Iceland. Played among glaciers and volcanoes rather than tea and strawberries, the Icelandic cricket scene is small but ambitious.
3. ‘Iceland’s reticence to unwind financial crisis capital controls’ – City A.M.
The Icelandic economy has been under capital controls since the financial crash in 2008. Andrew Lilico explains why it is now time to take advantage of current economic growth and bring Iceland back to being a functioning open market economy.
