Iceland Naturally is once again bringing a Taste of Iceland — a culinary and cultural plunge into the chilly Nordic country — to Denver. This year, the food and cocktails are again being presented at Coohills. Ylfa Helgadóttir, owner and chef de cuisine of Kopar in Reykjavik, is presenting four- and five-course dinners starting tonight and running through Saturday, September 26. She's presenting some of Iceland's finest seafood, lamb and produce with the help of chef/owner Tom Coohill and his staff. Reservations are limited, so if you haven't booked yet, check the Coohills website to see if seats are still available. The four-course version features all the dishes you see here for $75 a person. For $105, the meal includes an additional amouse bouche and wine pairings selected by Coohills co-owner Diane Coohill.

The restaurant is also hosting cocktail classes at 3:30 p.m. today through September 26, with drink recipes created by bar manager and mixologist Joshua Tallent, using Reyka vodka and other Icelandic ingredients. The classes are free but limited to 24 guests, so call the restaurant at 303-623-5700  to book a spot. Keep reading for a sneak peek of the dinner and cocktail menu.
