The debut from rising star chef Gisli Matt of Slippurinn, the international destination restaurant in Iceland's Westman Islands.

Chef Gisli Matt built Slippurinn with his family in a historic shipyard building of a small town whose landscape was changed forever by the lava flow from a 1973 erupted volcano. In this most incredible environment, where plants grow on mountains created out of lava, Matt created a menu that both respects the local and traditional and pushes boundaries of contemporary cuisine. His first book takes the reader right to the heart of Matt s fascinating culinary world and island life.
