Food Tour

Igapall Food Tour in South Greenland was a fantastic gastronomic initiative from Igapall founders Salik Parbst Frederiksen and Miki Siegstad. Igapall Food Tour is a pure celebration of Greenlandic chefs and the beautiful melting pot of Greenlandic ingredients that is South Greenland.

Lamb is, of course, a standby but so are turnips so fresh and juicy you eat them straight from their leafy stalks and bite into them just like an apple. And so is iginneq, the Cape Farewell specialty of smoky fermented Hooded seal fat. All the usual suspects and then some graced the plates of the three- and five-course dinners that got served everywhere from Narsaq to Nanortalik to Qaqortoq. The point is to share the fruits of the farmers' and hunters' labour and gather together for the simple joy of togetherness. 

Over the course of two weeks, these connoisseurs travelled to three towns in South Greenland sourcing food from local fishermen, farmers and hunters, collaborating with students at Greenland's one and only culinary school, Inuili, and finally opening a pop-up restaurant in each town with gorgeous 3-course and 5-course tasting menus.

Food Festival

Every summer, Otto, Paarnannguaq & Nukappiaaluk Nielsen opens their farm and arms to the local South Greenland community to host Tasiluk Food Festival. As a self-sustaining fishing, farming and hunting household, they have the privilege of accessing the most delicious Greenlandic ingredients from soil and sea. They feel a strong sense of connection to their surroundings, and that includes their community. They believe everyone should have the opportunity to eat quality Greenlandic food in the company of their family and friends, served with heart and soul.

Therefore, they work all year long preserving and preparing beautiful dishes that highlight the food they grow, hunt and fish themselves, and they have done so for the last ten years. Eating in a “hyper-local” way may be the trendy word for their Tasiluk Food Festival on Tasiluk Sheep Farm, but for them, it is their daily life and cultural tradition.
These locally-driven sustainable food events are an inspiration and invitation to all to join in the Greenlandic food revolution.
Food has the power to unite everyone!
