3 Heimablídni – Hjá Maud I am happy to invite you to our charming home, where my husband and I currently live. My grandparents built the house in the mid-1930s and we aim to maintain its original style. I grew up here and so did my father and this home has always had many guests visiting from the whole world. I continually strive to use local as well as seasonal Faroese ingredients when I cook. Relying on local resources is my way of taking care of the environment – and it also tastes better. I serve whatever grows in my garden with lots of passion and love. If I cannot find what I need in the garden, I buy Faroese grown vegetables and potatoes. The menu has various kinds of local fish and beef. Faroese lamb may at times be difficult to get hands on – then Icelandic lamb is a good alternative. Come by and enjoy a good homemade dinner with loads of storytelling about the various dishes and our beautiful island Nólsoy.
