Ólafur is a Michelin star chef with a restaurant in Reykjavik, Iceland. I know what you're thinking - dried herring, hotdogs and cured shark ... doesn't make me want to hop on a flight to Reykjavik for dinner. So Icelandic cuisine may not be for everyone but one of the reasons Ólafur earned those stars was for putting a contemporary fusion touch to traditional Icelandic dishes. Growing up between Iceland and Brazil has certainly influenced his truly unique dishes. One could even call it art.

For those who are still not convinced, there is something about Ólafur which is almost as impressive as his creativity in the kitchen - his taste in kitchenware. He loves innovative designers who use material and color in unexpected ways to create something simple yet fresh. Bright colors meet earthy textures in Ólafur's kitchen and we were so happy to have had the chance to see which additions he would like to make this year.
