Fond Food Memory

Iceland, 2017

Before we knew it was a no-no, my husband and I ordered puffin at a restaurant in Reykjavik, Iceland. It was a red meat and surprisingly tender (though I think the tenderness was due to to the chef’s skill because I’ve since read the meat can be gamey). Imagine a cow exclusively fed seafood and you’ll get an idea of the flavor. I wouldn’t order it again because you know, morals, but I will say puffins are even more delicious than they are cute.
