Further Info

In August 2012 the Inspired by Iceland campaign asked people a simple question: "What would you name Iceland if this was your first glimpse? _ _ _ _ Land?" and in just three weeks over 10,000 responded.

Many of those who contributed suggested that the name Iceland was misrepresentative and that another name may better reflect the country.

A naming page is visible on the website and the most popular contributions can be viewed along with the latest videos and images from the campaign.

The conversation will also be available on the Inspired by Iceland Facebook and Twitter pages.

Chef Tom Sellers, known for his time at Noma and now gaining notoriety with his own restaurant, Story, visited the Icelandic regions in 2012 as part of the Food 'n' Fun fest to explore Icelandic cuisine.

Tom Sellers, Head Chef, Story,    says:  "I am exceedingly intrigued by Icelandic cooking. Traditional delicacies are clearly still important to their food culture but Icelandic food has taken a modern turn.  They have access to some of the freshest ingredients  in the world and the cooking is  simply  outstanding."
