The foods of Norway

Traditionally, Scandinavian dishes are basic and many traditional meals include fish, potatoes, pork, and berries. Most Scandinavian cuisine relies on fresh, natural ingredients that can be found in the wild or that come fresh from the sea.
The main staple in Scandinavian cuisine is definitely fish.
GRAVLAX being the common Scandinavian dish made from raw salmon that is cured with salt, dill, and sugar.
Other popular foods are Meatballs, and Berries are a common staple in many Scandinavian dishes.Pancakes are a common Scandinavian dish. They are enjoyed at all times of the day, not just at breakfast as in other places in the world.
“In Norway, you’re not supposed to look forward to your lunch,” So, here is a slice of tradition
The ‘matpakke’, pronounced ‘maadpukke’, with a satisfying emphasis on the ‘e’, consists of a stack of three or four thin slices of wholemeal bread, with a meaty, fishy or cheesy layer on top of each (this is the word’s popular meaning, though technically it can be used to describe any food which is prepared to be eaten outside of the home).
Today the matpakke is much more than just an insipid open sandwich; it’s a national institution, and an understated source of cultural pride.
