We at OURWAY Tours love to discover a country through its food, as it says so much about it. If you’re planning a breakaway to Oslo this year, this is what you need to eat in Olso!
The Norwegian delicacy Brunost
Around 30% av all cheese that’s eaten by the Norwegians is the brunost, with its sweet-sour taste. The original Brunost (translating to brown cheese) was created by a woman named Anne Hov. In the middle of the 18th century, her residential area was led by an economic crisis, Anne Hov, who then worked on a mountain farm, got an idea. When she added cream to whey while boiling, she made a thicker, more solid product – like cheese. She named it Feitost (fat cheese). Since then, brown cheese has been produced, consumed and loved in Norway.
Fresh fish from Oslo Fjord
With its vicinity to the fjord, the city of Oslo is the perfect place to eat fresh fish. Try oysters, smoked salmon, smoked trout and marinated salmon. It’s a delight!
The dish is made from salted, dried ribs of sheep. The meat is then steamed in a saucepan on a layer of birch sticks or on a cooking grate. To pinnekjøtt, you’re most often served boiled potatoes, lingonberries or mustard. Even though pinnekjøtt is a dish most popular around Christmas, you can still find it at restaurants serving typical Norwegian food, almost year around.
