Geothermal bread?! Sounds weird and unlike anything I had heard of before so I had to go and find out more, thus a trip to Iceland was born.
In the summer half term the family and I all went to Iceland to find out about this strange bread. When we got there we found out so much more about Icelandic food than just the bread as it was a total revelation with some of the most memorable meals out I have had in a long time.
The story of this bread ended up as the lead story in the Telegraph Travel section on Saturday 13th August and is on their website here.
