Popular TV Host Boils Carrots in Iceland Hot Spring

By Iceland Review

Norwegian foor journalist Andreas Viestad, host of the popular television program New Scandinavian Cooking, was in Iceland this week to shoot the show’s tenth series. It is watched by at least 120 million viewers in around 100 countries.

“It has been incredibly exciting,” Viestad commented to Fréttablaðið, joking that he was surprised that Fimmvörðuháls, which erupted in 2010, hadn’t been crowded with Icelandic families preparing their Sunday roast.

“I don’t think you use your volcanoes efficiently enough because it is great to cook there,” said Viestad.

Two episodes will be dedicated to Iceland, where Viestad has cooked Arctic char on the banks of Laxá River, grilled lamb on Fimmvörðuháls and boiled salmon, carrots and apples in hot springs at Flúðir.
