Sweden can truly be a foodie’s heaven. No serving of food can draw as much awe and admiration as the Swedish smörgåsbord.

It is literally a board filled with delicious hot and cold foods including salmon, köttbullar (meatballs), bread, and many other delicious things. Make sure you leave room for fika; which is a coffee and pastries you share with friends. Yes, in Sweden they have a name for this marriage made in culinary heaven.
