Cooking classes at Tónabær

This tour is a must if you like different food cultures and want to learn more about the Icelandic ways of cooking! Jessica invites you to her home, Tónabær, to learn how to cook classic Icelandic food and eat the food you made together.

Have you ever wanted to travel to a place and just be able to hang out with a local and see what every day looks like? Come and join Jessica for an evening where you cook and eat the meal together at her own home right next to Selfoss. Jessica is an amazing chef with a lot of experience. Her home is wonderful and quirky just like her and there she has the largest collection of Coca Cola memorabilia in Iceland.

Main highlights of the class

  • Of course, Jessica herself is on top as the main highlight. She is an amazing chef and teacher and has vast knowledge of Icelandic cuisine
  • You get to visit a local and see what normal life looks like for an Icelander, but also you get to see a little bit of the countryside
