Faroe Islands Archives - Tareq Taylor's Nordic Cookery

Fermented lamb

Discover the majestic and unusual Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands are located north of Scotland and southeast of Iceland, which means it’s one of the most northern parts of the planet where people provide. Tareq and the crew visited the beautiful capital Torshavn, where half of the 50,000 people live, and tried what Tareq called the best cod he’s ever tasted. They also explored a special hut for air-drying and fermenting whale and lamb meat, had a helicopter tour of the mountains formed by glaciers, and ate traditional food you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Plus, shooting in June meant the sun never set – which was difficult on the crew when it came time for bed. See more about this episode by clicking on the “Episodes” link at the top of the page.
