Being nearly surrounded by northern waters, Sweden offers a unique cuisine featuring the finest seafood, meat, fruits, and vegetables. Early inhabitants developed methods to salt, dehydrate, and cure these foods so they would last through the seasons as well as over long sea voyages. The Vikings returned to Sweden with
teas, sauces and soups, and sweets that were adopted into the traditional home cooking, which along with the well-known smorgasbord, has contributed to Sweden's growing culinary reputation. Today, traditional Swedish fare is being enhanced by many distinguished chefs who emphasize quality and natural ingredients in their highly regarded restaurants. With this growing culinary distinction, beautiful landscape, and proximity to the sea, Sweden has taken its rightful place on the world map of culinary destinations.
