Nigella knows her stuff
For Easter supper this year, I have decided to make lamb and beans, a dish served in Iceland for sprengidagur, I know. But according to the most popular cooking goddess in Iceland (whom I have never seen on television in the U.S.), it is a perfectly acceptable Easter meal. It is funny that Nigella would recommend the same Easter dinner my first husband made in 2000, when we had curators from Finland and Iceland, in town for the installation of artifacts at the Smithsonian Viking show, over for dinner. I remember Sigurgeir from the Arni Magnusson Institute raving about it, and also just genuinely happy not to be dining alone on Easter Sunday.
