A Norwegian culinary voyage

Food is a total pleasure and experience of all your senses, and where this might be felt utmost than in a perfect atmosphere, with view across a scenic fjord, the scent from a cracking log fire, a beautiful room and special company, the delicate waves sound coming from nearby beach or the chill air from a cold winter night while being protected by a warm glow surrounded by a variety of natural scents...

Dare to experience Norwegian traditional cuisine, a flavorful journey from apple groves and salmon walking through to the mountain creeks and admiring crystal clear waters with turquoise shades or simply sitting down enjoying a delicious meal.

Lot of fun, unbelievable taste of Norwegian homemade food or prepared by experienced chefs in cozy restaurants following traditional recipes kept secret by centuries, and one thousand flavors...
Norway's culinary traditions show the influence of long seafaring and farming traditions with salmon (fresh and cured), herring (pickled or marinated), trout, codfish and other seafood balanced by cheeses, dairy products and breads (predominantly dark/ darker).
