Tá ókunnufólk kom á leið - Heimablídni

Anna and Óli manage the farm as the 9th generation. For many years, they have tended to the farm and its livestock honouring the traditions handed down to them.

The boom in Nordic cuisine inspired them to serve unique local food prepared with Faroese recipes, and they decided to invite guests into their home for a taste of the Faroe Islands.

This worked out better than they ever dared to dream. Life on the farm soon gained a new and highly enjoyable side: merry moments with guests, often from afar, who want to experience the hospitality of a Faroese home in good company.

In addition to the Nordic languages, the hosts speak both English and German. For their work Anna and Óli received the 2017 Nordic Food Prize EMBLA in the category ‘Food Destination’.

This book introduces the ingredients used and the work that goes into preparing them. We follow the annual cycle of livestock and crops, see how everything grows and matures until it is ready for the dining table in a cosy living room with a view of fjords and islands.


The book is available in faroese, english og german
