Food in Norway

Considering the fact that one of Norway’s main industries is fishing, its’ hardly surprising that fish - fried, poached, baked, cured and in countless other forms- appears on virtually every menu in the country. Cod, mackerel, wolf fish, salmon and trout are among the most abundant, and many of Norway’s popular dishes-such as lutefisk (dried cod smoked in lye) and laks (grilled or smoked salmon) are based on these. Red meat, poultry and game are also consumed, though to a lesser extent. Vegetables, once rare, are now used in larger quantities, although pride of place is still given to potatoes. Cheeses, especially a brown goat’s cheese called geitost, are popular, particularly in places where vegetables are hard to get hold of.

Coffee and tea, especially the latter are widely available in Norway, and so is liquor. The cheapest drink is beer, which is more or less available in every large store, and often in smaller shops too. Pricey, but worth a try for anyone who’s adventurous, is the local aquavit- a fiery spirit that packs quite a punch!
