A place isn’t a place without the food people eat. I can’t say I had time to discover any true Icelandic dishes (I think I’m ok avoiding whale, shark and puffin- the “adventurous dishes”) in my 24 hours, but I did discover the wonderful Icelandic yogurt, Skyr. It’s actually a fat-free (NOT sugar free) whipped whey, protein-filled yogurt, that is a bit thicker than typical American-style yogurt. The best part too is that it comes with a cute little retractable spoon in the lid. Lucky for you though, you don’t have to go all the way to Iceland to sample this treat – just stop by your local Whole Foods dairy section. . . And for all you Baltimoreans, Carma’s Cafe in Charles Village makes their own version of homemade Icelandic-style yogurt.

On a side note, Grace at Design*Sponge posted a Kansas City design guide yesterday. I lived there for 8 years growing up (where I took my first art classes), so it’s great to see the city getting coverage in the mainstream design scene.
