I started Öskubox in my head so many years ago. It was always something I wanted to do as a young little nippa but then as the years passed and I didn’t quite settle in jobs I realised my passion for food, drink and Norse history.
I am born and raised Icelandic. I will be a Viking in my heart forever but my feet no longer fit the earth and country of Ice and Fire. (For the time being) When I got back recently from Iceland I realised that my heart and soul will always be Nordic but my home is at least for the unforeseeable future in faraway lands such as England!
After all, the Vikings did sail here for better land. Many say for other things as well but when you actually look into their history, it was the love of the land and the opportunity the English soil provided that had the heart of the Vikings. I must admit I follow in those footsteps!
So at Öskubox that is what you will find. Passion, independence, quirk, ever changing soups, quiches and specials – just like mamma made it!
We are also partnering up with incredible people in 2017 so watch this space and most of all just enjoy the food out there and say Skál to life! #nordicnosh #bringit #liveit
If you think you’ve eaten your way around the world – or just eaten your way around the famous SCFood Market – we’ve got exciting news. This summer you can find something truly unusual, an Icelandic food stall run by a real life Viking (but don’t worry, she’s friendly).
