Riceboy Sleeps does a Cooking Show

By Iceland Review

Musical duo Riceboy Sleeps, Jón Thór Birgisson, better known as Jónsi from the band Sigur Rós and Alex Somers have posted a cooking show on their home page, jonsiandalex.com.

“We are always dabbling with food and we thought it might be fund to do our own show,” Jónsi told visir.is.

On the show, they teach viewers to make “Macadamia Monster Mash”, which consists of macadamia nuts, parsley, lemon juice, garlic and water, and is salted to taste. The mash is then stuffed into tomatoes and chilli peppers.

The recipe comes from their cookbook, The Good Heart, which is also published on their website. It was originally made in 50 copies as a christmas present to friends and family in the year 2007. The book can be downloaded in PDF format.

Alex and Jónsi are true food afficionadoes. “We are certified raw-food shews, we have the certificate and everything. We took a course in Hawaii.”

Will there be more shows? “Yes, there are more shows on the way. We have already recorded four short segments. It is a lot of fun to do something else than music.”
