Deb Smith“A Taste of Iceland" by Deb Smith, at left, associate professor at CDL-international programs, was recently published in the August-September issue of Atlantica Travel magazine, the English-language visitor's magazine of Iceland.

In the article, Smith lunches on traditional Icelandic home-cooked foods prepared at Cafe Loki, near Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral in Reykjavik. In particular, she contrasts Italian gelatos with the Café Loki specialty, Icelandic brown-bread ice cream.

In the October-November edition of Atlantica, Smith cooks and taste-tests recipes in “Chef Úlfar: Icelandic Home Cooking on a Budget,” by Úlfar Eysteinsson. Úlfar is the chef-proprietor of Þrír frakkar (Three Overcoats), a fine-dining favorite of both British chef Jamie Oliver and Smith, located at Baldursgata 14 in Reykjavik.

Both the current issue and future issues of Atlantica are available at http://www.icelandreview.com/about_us/atlantica/. Smith’s current article appears on page 14.
