Love him David Bowie and love his music – chef Ragnar Eiriksson

 

The acclaimed Icelandic chef Gunnar Gíslason’s award-winning Dill restaurant in Reykjavik was recently visited by Vivian Lynch the official photographer of the film David Bowie Is Around The World.  Here she captured chef Ragner Eiriksson and got the scoop of what’s going on at this hot spot and with its owner chef Gunnar Gíslason.

Firstly chef  Gunnar Gíslason is relocating to New York City,  to team up with Danish food entrepreneur Claus Meyer to launch a Nordic fare the first such venture by Gíslason and Meyer.  As the fame of Dill restaurant goes far beyond Iceland if you are not planing to make it to Iceland then the New York spot will be the ‘it’ spot and that will make David Bowie, Iman, Taylor Swift and lovers of food very happy.

But what of Dill in Reykjavik you ask? It will continue to serve its highly creative, savory and esthetically pleasing dishes. As current sous chef Ragnar Eiríksson  who is a life long David Bowie fan! “Love him, and love his music” said the soft spoken, talented chef from South Iceland.

Arnold about Chef Alberto “You are what you eat, I’ll be back” Australian Grand Prix 2015

2015-03-16 08.25.57

The most exciting thing was seeing Arnie on the podium – Christian Horner/Red Bull Racing

Arnold Schwarzenegger had delighted everyone since his arrival in Australia. I used to go to his restaurant all the time in Venice, California and if Arnold was around he would do the rounds of all the tables to say hello.

As the race has finished Arnold was walking up to the podium and I just had received aJ back notification on my phone, from one of my girlfriends in Toronto who wanted to give me a progress report on her weight training just then Arnold tapped my shoulder, “Hey you, you know Mr. Pakistan won the 100 class?”, Arnold was referring to former Mr. Pakistan Atif Anwar. “Wow, now that is really cool, Arnold check this out one of my girlfriend’s just sent this”.

Arnold now had my phone clasped in his big hands, looking at the picture, “no body fat that is a good start” he said. As he was about to give me my phone another notification came up, and it was Chef Alberto Annarumma, Arnold looked at it before passing me the phone I did tell him I will show you the rest of what this chef is up to but Arnold had to go and left me with his famous words, “You are what you eat, I’ll be back”. Also check out Chefs Bowie menu.

I will leave it up to Arnolds girlfreind to get him to Amalfi for a visit with Chef Annarumma.  As Arnold found out all the driver work out hard and our big into fitness and good food.  If you are going to any of the races in Europe then a must stop would be with the Chef in Amalfi. I am pretty sure that Elyse Knowles can manage to drag Daniel Ricciardo for a meal with the chef after seeing these images from his Instagram.
