Whenever you come to Sweden you will experience the Swedish food. This great country is famous for its fresh fish, reindeer and bakery products. Since a couple of years the “New Nordic Cuisine” has taken an important place in the gourmet world. Of course there are still the Swedish meatballs “Köttbullar” with gravy and mashed potatoes, uncountable versions of herring and the typical “Fika” the coffee and cake time for Sweden, but there is far more to explore.
The typical dishes you will get everywhere, even out of Sweden (Ikea), but it is worth to try the local products when you are there. The seafood platters in Gothenburg are mouth-watering and the variety of berries (blueberry, raspberry and cloudberry) from the North are delicious. By now you can find a lot of Swedish restaurants which offer an affordable lunch menu, but it’s more exciting to explore the new Swedish food scene. There is a lot of creativity when it comes to local produce in the new restaurants. The food scene in Sweden has changed a lot. Now you can have flamed meat on burning fir using ingredients from the very neighbourhood, presented in an authentic and cool way as never seen before. For all visitors of Stockholm during Eurovision it will be an interesting opportunity to fall in love with the Swedish cuisine.
There is a very interesting Food documentary from Munchies about Swedish food in five parts. Ivar Berglin is going to take you on an interesting journey throughout Sweden and the culinary delicatessen:

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
