Boiled Eggs and Lava Bread

In the hot spring town of Laugarvatn, Iceland, the most pristine rye bread is baked in volcanic, muddy ground. Siggi Rafn Hilmarsson from Laugarvatn Fontana takes us through the making process step by step and welcomes us into his bakery, aka the hot springs of the lake in Laugarvatn. The sand by the lake can host from 10 to 15 tins of bread.

  2. When I was in ReykjavΓ­k 20 years ago there was a restaurant that served “hot rock” dinners. It’s basically a slab of really hot lava rock that is brought to your table and placed in front of you, along with a bunch of raw meet, vegetables and sauces. The waiter ties a fireproof apron on you and you cook your food on the hot rock while you sit and eat it.
