    Scandinavia is a historical and geographical region covering much of Northern Europe. The Scandinavian Peninsula is the largest in Europe, extending from above the Arctic Circle to the North and Baltic Seas.

    In the past, Scandinavia has been defined as the three kingdoms that historically shared the Scandinavian Peninsula - being Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Today, although there is some debate, most define Scandinavia as a region that includes Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. (Although Greenland belongs to the kingdom of Denmark, it is rarely included.)
    The cuisine of all 5 countries will be accepted for inclusion in the Scandinavian region for ZWT9.

    The Scandinavian cuisine is based on a simple cooking style, full of flavour but not very spicy. Many of the cooking styles and dishes used by the Vikings are still present in the Scandinavian cuisine as seen today. The three main cuisines of Scandinavia are the Norwegian, the Danish and the Swedish.

    Norwegian Cuisine – the cuisine is characterized by a sense of practicality and economy. Norwegians love their meat, whether it is pork, veal or fish meat. The vast wild areas of Norway, and the abundance of fish and game, makes such natural food resources a top pick for many traditional dishes. The simplicity of the cuisine does not imply a lack of taste, but it does make life easier for the cook. Smoked salmon is probably the most famous type of food product related to Norway.

    Danish Cuisine – the cuisine of Denmark is characterized by high levels of meat and animal fat and a rather low level of plants and vegetables. The long winters from the Scandinavian Peninsula shaped the face of the Danish cuisine. Fresh vegetables are rare in the traditional Danish recipes, and many dishes rely on seasonal fruits or vegetables. The climate enables lengthy meet preservation, so smoked meat is one of the most frequently used ingredients in the Danish cuisine. The Danish cuisine is rather conservative, and the numerous islands that form Denmark helped keep the traditional, conservative cooking styles alive until modern times.

    Swedish Cuisine – It is considered rude not to finish the food you have on the plate, mainly because, in many cases, you serve yourself and you are responsible for the amount of food you place on your plate. The meals are not very elaborate and many will find them scarce in vegetables. Traditional recipes were influenced by the lack of plants due to the long Swedish winters and many modern dishes still include only small amounts of vegetables. Rutabaga is a native turnip that was among the most popular plant types in Swedish cooking until it was replaced by the potato. The abundance of fish, mainly herring, had its influence on traditional cooking.

    Finnish Cuisine- Finnish cuisine is very similar to Swedish cuisine, though Finnish prefer unsweetened or less sweetened foods. For example, while traditional Swedish rye bread includes plenty of syrup and spices, Finnish rye bread is unsweetened and even bitter. The most popular meats in Finland are pork, beef and chicken. Traditionally, very few spices other than salt were available, and fresh herbs like dill were limited to the summer months. Many Finnish traditional dishes are prepared by stewing them for a long time in an oven. Arctic wild berries are distinctively featured in Finnish cuisine with their strong flavor and high nutrient content. Lakes in Finland provide many opportunities for fishing and fish has always been an important protein source.

    Icelandic Cuisine- Lamb is the most commonly served meat in Iceland. Many types of fish and seafood are abundant in Iceland, with haddock, carpelin, herring, cod, plaice, lobsters, clams and shrimp being some of the most common varieties eaten. Fish is traditionally served boiled and accompanied by potatoes. Fish is often preserved by salting, smoking or drying. It is difficult to grow vegetables and almost impossible to grow fruits in Iceland’s arctic climate. Root vegetables—such as potatoes, rutabagas, beets and carrots—often appear on the Icelandic menu, as well as cold weather vegetables—such as cabbage and rhubarb. More than 100 different varieties of cheese are produced in Iceland.
