The debut book from rising star chef Gísli Matt of Slippurinn, the international destination restaurant in Iceland’s Westman Islands

Chef Gísli 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.

Gísli Matt (b.1989) hails from the Westman islands from a long line of cooks and fishermen. After training as a chef and working in restaurants in other parts of the world he decided to open a restaurant with his family. The dream was to make a place that is charming with an amazing atmosphere that is only open during the summer and that uses only seasonal produce from the islands. In 2012 Slippurinn opened its doors and his dream became a reality.
