Gastronomy in Norway
The cold weather of Norway is an element to be taken into account in its gastronomic culture, based mainly on the raw materials available in the country.
If you are passionate about salmon, you will enjoy for sure! But as you have already seen in our menu, in Norway it’s not all about salmon. Cod (the most typical fish in Lofoten), trout, shellfish, whale, mackerel, and also sardines and herring are some of the essential ingredients in Norwegian fish dishes.
The Meat lovers will also enjoy! The Norwegian cuisine has a good variety of wild meat dishes as moose meat, reindeer or various wild birds. These dishes are usually accompanied by tasty sauces that give them a special touch.
And, finally… desserts. In Norway it is usual to find red fruits as accompaniment of cakes and biscuits. You’ll see that the size is somewhat smaller than usual, but the concentration of flavor is amazing. In addition to the confectioner’s, in Norway is very popular rice pudding, vaflers (which is something like our waffles) and the “Multekrem”, made with orange blackberries of the marshes (the reindeer’s favourite fruit ) and whipped cream.
