Few people would imagine that Greenland will in the future be the land of gourmet travellers. Tasting the traditional food in Greenland will not leave you wanting more, but young chef Inunnguaq Hegelund is one of the secrets that we are about to brake to the world. Leif Sörensen from the Faroe Islands is one of Denmarks best chefs. His food is like an revelation on the verge of a religious experience, whereas the traditional food is more challenging. In Iceland, nature talent Sveinn Kjartansson makes miracles in and out in his kitchen and in a rather eccentric household on the island Flatey where blood pudding is served as a desert. And finally in Norway we taste the legendary Lutefisk and Faarekaal, before we go on the road with food missionary Hanne Frosta!

Tradition is up against the trend in food culture in four countries by the North Atlantic Ocean. The traveller, Gísli Örn Gar›arsson is going on an inspiration journey to see what has kept these nations going through the centuries and why they are now capturing the attention of the gourmets of the world.
