Faroe Islands – Puffins

Faroese puffins are also a part of the local cuisine. Don’t ask me how do they taste, because I don’t eat meat…

Puffin is a culinary specialty of the Faroe Islands and Iceland. Puffins used to be hunted for eggs, feathers and meat also in other countries, but it was stopped because of the decreasing number of puffin’s population.

Maskonury są także elementem farerskiej kuchni… Nie pytajcie mnie jak smakują, ponieważ nie jadam mięsa.

Na Wyspach Owczych i na Islandii kolonie maskonurów są ciągle dosyć duże i maskonury są lokalnym przysmakiem. Jakiś czas temu polowano na maskonury również w innych krajach, ale zaprzestano tego, ponieważ populacja maskonurów bardzo zmalała.

  1. I don’t eat meat either. But I don’t think I could ever have eaten a puffin even when I did. Too cute! I know that’s illogical.

  2. Kiedyś chciałam pojechać na wakacje na Wyspy Owcze, ale niestety mi się to nie udało. Maskonury piękne i szczerze mówiąc nie wiem jak można je zjadać.:)…

  3. Oh I do love these puffin photos. Never knew they were edible. I’m with you though, I could not eat one. A wonderful series of photos and commentary. Thank you. ?

  4. I think it’s in Scandinavian countries that some types of duvets were, or perhaps still are, called puffins, because they were made using puffiness feathers. The birds themselves are very cute.
