Dan Saladino reports on food, survival and fishing from the Faroe Islands. From fermented sheep's head to whale blubber he finds out how people eat on the remote archipelago.

Things are changing however and dishes from the past are now helping to drive a restaurant boom. Produced and presented by Dan Saladino.
