Menu | Icelandair Hotel Herad

Local produce

The Kitchen

Chefs Guðjón and Sindri always use local ingredients when possible. Icelandair Hotel Herad is a member of the East-Icelandic Delicacies association
which aims to promote local food culture. Most of our produce comes from local farmers and we only use Icelandic meat. Herbs, salads and seasonal vegetables come from nearby organic farmers Eygló and Eymundur of Vallanes. The heart of the house is the Spanish Motilfrit charcoal oven
that brings out the fantastic flavors of our food.
