Fish makes up much of Norwegian cuisine: this probably comes as no surprise after all; you're never far from the ocean in the Land of the Midnight Sun. The great thing about having fish in Norway is that it's guaranteed to be fresh. Your proximity to both fresh and seawater means that any fish you eat in Norway will be a cut above the rest. The freshness marks a big difference compared to the cuts found in your local freezer section. Adventurous carnivores will leap at the chance to try reindeer and elk, both of which are fairly easy to find in Norway. In fact, reindeer is among the dishes regularly referenced as one of Norway's local delicacies. Local quality grains and vegetables, lamb and cured meats, wild berries, and of course the all-important fish are staples of the Norwegian kitchen.
