This is Gísli. Gísli is Grillid´s manager and head Sommelier – he even has one of those fancy Sommelier pins to prove it and all! He does have a rather strong opinion about mostly anything really (and assuredly this text as well as he cencors it (done!)).

Icelandic Lamb

Icelandic Lamb

Icelandic sheep are raised sustainably in unspoiled nature and the lambs, which are born in the spring, roam free in the mountains during the summer, drink milk and eat nutritious mountain vegetation as they have done since 874. This provides a particularly healthy meat that is renowned for its flavor.

Jesper Krabbe – Food & Fun

Born in a little village called Lemvig on the western coast of Denmark, nature and sea have always held a special place in Jesper’s heart. After a relatively short-lived career as a “professional” billiard player resulting in his first ever gold medal in 1990, he took off to Oslo to make some money. Shortly thereafter he started working in the kitchen in Hotel Holmekollen, found his stride and decided to train as a chef.
