Took this cooking class with my 2 adult children (24&26). It was great. We learned how to cook great food and learned a bit about Icelandic history through food. The instructors/ owners were wonderful, friendly and easy to work with. We love to cook and this was a great class and the food we prepared was delicious!!!!!

My fiancé and I had an amazing time during this class (which we happened to be the only couple there that evening so it felt more like a private cooking class!). The food was amazing and we were given so much history on the food and culture of Iceland. I would highly recommend this if you are spending any time in Reykjavik. You won’t regret it and it might possibly be the best meal you’ll eat during your stay!

My girlfriend and I want to start taking cooking classes whenever we travel. We were a bit worried that this might not work out, but thankfully Salt Eldhus definitely cemented it into a tradition! As we made our way up a few flight of stairs to get to the space, past a few embassies it appears, wondering if we had the right area, we made our way into an absolutely gorgeous open cooking area. From there we got started pretty quickly and it was a fantastic experience. Not only did we get to try local foods we weren't familiar with, but also got a lot of introduction into the history of Iceland that I don't think otherwise we would have been exposed to. In the middle we took a break for a quick tasting of more traditional Icelandic cuisine and some local beer, which was fantastic and gave us a taste for real pickled herring which is not something I ever thought I would enjoy. Once everything was finished up, we had a chance to sit down and enjoy our meal along with with wine while enjoying the lovely view from the top floor of the building we were at. I really couldn't have asked for much more of an enjoyable experience.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the experience, not to mention that you intend to do attend a cooking class on your future travels. I remember that afterwards I emailed you details concerning the type of syrup we use for the steamed rye bread you tasted. We would love to know if you tried baking the bread and how it went? Happy cooking!
