Sweden is a great region, and Swedish food is a great ethnic food. At its best, Swedish food is excellent, largely meat-, fish- and potato-based, but varied and generally tasty and filling.
In the last few decades immigrants from all over the world have enriched Swedish food culture with a host of exciting dishes.
Typically classical Swedish cooking includes lots of seafood, herring in particular; open faced sandwiches; and Swedish meatballs, a smörgåsbord favorite: Swedish meatballs (köttbullar).
Swedish desserts may include lingonberries – a high bush cranberry, and used a lot in Swedish cooking.
If you equate Swedish food with smorgasbord, meatballs and dill, think again! Although these are great delights, you’ll enjoy a wide range of tasty, fresh-cooked food in Sweden.
