The foods of Norway

In many ways, traditional food in Norway is different from most of continental Europe. It puts a stronger emphasis on fish and game. Reindeer, moose, deer, and grouse are popular game meats that are just as often served at Norwegian restaurants as they are at home. Lamb also figures prominently in the Norwegian diet. Fårikål is the Norwegian national dish while Fenalår, a dish of slow-cured lamb’s leg, has been given Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status. Because of its long winters, preserving food like cod and lamb wasn’t done just for pleasure in Norway, it was a necessity. Interestingly, Norway’s most famous cheese – brunost – isn’t a cheese at all. It’s brown in color and often enjoyed with Norway’s most beloved snack – Norwegian waffles shaped like hearts.
