Greenland – Tasiluk Food Festival

Every summer, Otto, Paarnannguaq & Nukappiaaluk Nielsen opens their farm and arms to the local South Greenland community to host Tasiluk Food Festival. As a self-sustaining fishing, farming and hunting household, they have the privilege of accessing the most delicious Greenlandic ingredients from soil and sea. They feel a strong sense of connection to their surroundings, and that includes their community. They believe everyone should have the opportunity to eat quality Greenlandic food in the company of their family and friends, served with heart and soul. Therefore, they work all year long preserving and preparing beautiful dishes that highlight the food they grow, hunt and fish themselves, and they have done so for the last ten years. Eating in a “hyper-local” way may be the trendy word for their Tasiluk Food Festival on Tasiluk Sheep Farm, but for them, it is their daily life and cultural tradition.
