The annual Food and Fun Festival is back! Mixing outstanding culinary skills, fresh natural ingredients, and the famous Reykjavik nightlife makes the ultimate recipe for fun! From February 26 to March 2, 13 world-renowned chefs will collaborate with Reykjavik’s finest restaurants to create original meals using only ingredients from Iceland.

Each new menu will be available at the participating restaurants for one week and the chefs will be present in the kitchens for three days before moving on to the next phase of the festival, the competition.  On March 1, the chefs will meet at the beautiful Harpa Concert & Conference Hall and present a three course meal with only ingredients from Iceland to a panel of 8 judges from around the world.
