Do you have any puffin?

So, I’m doing a lot more cooking these days, and learning about food rather than just eating it. My kitchen confidence has taken a knock over the last few years, but I’m back. Anyway, as part of this belly-pleasing pursuit, and to satisfy my desire to recreate some of the amazing meals I ate whilst living in Iceland, I tracked down a book called Icelandic Food and Cookery, which looks great.

However, I think that getting hold of many ingredients the book lists will be tricky. I’m wondering, where in Nottingham can I buy bog bilberries, guillemot, moss, horsemeat, ptarmigan, puffin, reindeer, rutabagas or razorbill? Hmm, perhaps I’ll switch the sea and game birds for some free range chicken.
