The foodie traveller … on Iceland’s new way with whey

The cheese by-product grannies kept in the fridge is having a revival, with Iceland’s brightest new restaurants now including it on their menus

Skyr, a low-fat fresh cheese brought to Iceland by Norse settlers over 1,000 years ago, is an integral part of the Icelandic national diet – particularly when served with blueberries and cream for dessert. And just as much part of the tradition is whey, the liquid remaining after the cow’s milk has been curdled and strained. This has long been valuable for preserving food because of its acidity.
