Skyr: Making Icelandic Yogurt

Course Overview

Skyr is a thick and tangy Icelandic yogurt, known for its low fat content and delightful texture. Traditionally made from skim milk and high in protein, skyr is both healthy and surprisingly creamy. Skyr has been a mainstay of the Icelandic diet for centuries, where a harsh climate made food preservation essential for survival. Skyr-making was something of an everyday art, traditionally made on farms and homesteads throughout the country. In this course, we’ll make Icelandic skyr and explore Iceland’s unique culture by tracing skyr’s role in traditional life and literature, and through sampling traditional Icelandic recipes. You’ll leave the course ready to make and enjoy skyr at home.
