Do you consider yourself to be a foodie?  Do you want to travel to Iceland and just need a good enough reason to go?   Well, the Reykjavik Food Festival is your answer. For the last nine years, Reykjavik has been home to this event which is held during the last week of February. People from all over arrive to partake in this event. The festival  brings together outdoor activities, the Reykjavik nightlife and fine cuisine. Local chefs will be competing with others from around the globe.  Each is assigned to one of the local restaurants participating in the competition (the restaurants chosen are considered to be the best in the city). He or she  will create a menu of gastronomic delights using only Icelandic ingredients and the special menu is served for an entire week.  Awards will be given for “Best Meat Course”, “Best Fish Course” and “Best Dessert”.  But there will be only one award give to “Reykjavik Food and Fun Festival – Chef of the Year 2010”.

This year the event will be held from Wednesday 24 February until Sunday the 28th of February. Come and join the fun, and don’t forget to visit the Blue Lagoon and go see the glaciers, geysers and waterfalls while you’re there. Visiting Iceland is a once in a lifetime experience that should be taken full advantage of.  Book your flight to Reykjavik now and join the party!
