Exotic Food

A little joke on what the food in the different Nordic countries is like.

The Swedes are said to mix weird things. I once tasted smörgåstårta and it isn’t half bad. It just looks and sounds disgusting when it’s put in front of you. It’s not a real cake, but more like a sandwich that have been turned inside out and dolled up to look like a cake.

The Norwegians are said to make really boring and plain food, without many spices or accompaniments. That have of course changed now, but most of the old traditional food is still rather plain.

Danish food is said to be well tasting but extremely fattening, or sweet. Sometimes both. However, unlike fast food it will satisfy your hunger.

Icelandic traditional food is just plain weird. :XD:

Finland is mainly known for their many different kinds of bread. I just thought it would be fun to have King Europe still refusing to taste mämmi. :D

I want to try risalamande and fish and potatoes.

Risalamande sounds delicious and I love fish and potatoes

As an American, I want to try the smörgåstårta more than the risalamande. What's wrong with me?

America is like that, probably because you can't distinguishe fat and muscle.

HAHAHA, we actually eat lamb head in Norway too. Would say people in Norway eat everything, we eat lamb, cow, chicken, duck, pig, deer, reindeer, moose, whale, salmon (mostly smoked), lutefisk, cod, crab, crawfish, mussels, oyster, shrimp, porridge (most in christmas), etc...

It doesn't surprise me that America already tried Risalamande

Risalamande is really good, even though I had no idea that it was Dansih :/ And I thought it was called Ris à la Malta.

We have smörgåstårta in Finland but it's called voileipäkakku. It's mostly considered party food. I like it a lot. Mämmi is for easter only and it's ok when you put enough vanilla or cream on it.
