Want to bake some Icelandic leafbread in a historical place?

- Blog

On Sunday 24th November at 13:30, Margrét Sigfúsdóttir, the Head of a local school of Icelandic culinary arts and crafts will be teaching guests the art of making traditional Icelandic leaf bread (laufabrauð).

Everyone's encouraged to hop on the ferry to Viðey and spend a cosy afternoon together for this wonderful seasonal activity. You never know, the smell of that delicious leaf bread cooking might just tempt a few of those Icelandic Christmas Lads over for a visit!

The cost is 2,250 ISK for 10 pieces of leafbread.

Viðey House has a limited supply of lead-bread irons and paring knives, therefore guests are asked to bring their own utensils like small knifes if possible.

A selection of tasty meals and refreshments are available to purchase at Viðey Restaurant.
