Andrimner in Norse Mythology


Andrimner means “sooty face”. He is chef for the Aesir and einherjar. Every day, he killed Saehrimnir, the cosmic boar, and cooked it in Eldhrimnir, his cauldron with magical powers. That night, the boar was restored to life to be eaten again the next day. He makes the Aesir’s mead from the milk of Heidrun, a goat.
