Hi, this is the blog of Chris and Ethna Parker. We are using this space to keep our friends, family and interested passers-by up to date with our ‘great adventure’ in Iceland. Do drop by often and see what we are getting up to in the most beautiful country on the planet. And, do leave comments, especially if you come across any hints, tips and bargains in Iceland that you think we would like. We are total Icelandphiles, we love just about everything about the place. But of course, loving Iceland doesn’t mean it’s always an easy place to live, so here we will share our ups and downs of life in Iceland. The pain, the gain, the lot!
Over time, I will add our favourite family recipes to the blog. So from time to time, you will happen across recipes that mean something to me, my family and my friends. I cook the kind of food that makes you feel that life is good…which it is! Food that will, on occasions, dissuade you from rising too soon from the table. Food that has you furtively scanning the table for uneaten morsels, even though you have had your full. Food that makes you feel hungry as soon as the invitation to dinner is received. Food that makes you want to lick your plate in public. Welcome to the world of the Parkers in Iceland.
