For years, artistic partners Jonsi, singer for the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, and Alex have been collaborating their talents. One of their more recent projects is a raw foods recipe book titled, Good Heart.

THE BOOK, AVAILABLE for viewing and download on the couple’s website,, features an eclectic compilation of curries, dressings, soups, libations, and desserts that all have one thing in common: none of the ingredients are cooked.

From the website:

“The book holds a small collection of our home-made, Good Heart recipes. These recipes gather fresh and beautiful ingredients and are simple and easy to make. We hope this book will encourage improvisation and experimentation… so feel free to substitute your favorite ingredients in and out as you like.”

Though the food photos are less than stellar and the handwritten notes can be a bit hard on the eyes, after years of offering up their creative souls to the public, Jonsi and Alex are now serving their personal lives as well. Clicking through the recipe book, it becomes startlingly clear just how open and inviting the two are. Fans will undoubtedly appreciate this intimate look into the domestic side of Jonsi and Alex.
