Traditional swedish food (husmanskost) consists mostly of potatoes.
Boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, raw-steaked potatoes…
With this comes meat (meatballs or pork, for example ) or fish (mostly herring or cod).
Swedish food is often accused of being very fat and “heavy” food. With some dishes you eat lingonberry jam (I’ve never understood the point of that). Gravy too.
A dish that a lot of kid’s dislike is pea soup url=https://www.coolabah.com/ausblog/marie/sps0502.jpg[/url] . It’s a soup made of peas and pork. Or something. I’m not a huge fan of it.
One thing that suprised me as a child was swedes eating pancakes for lunch, because that’s not how you eat them in Finland. I’ve always seen pancakes as dessert or a snack after school.
On midsummer’s eve, it’s very common to eat bread, potato and herring. Then drink a couple of snaps, with drinking songs of course.
As a dessert, strawberries.
I don’t know if it’s because I live in Stockholm, or if it’s so in the rest of Sweden too, but people tend to eat a lot of international dishes. Pasta, wok, mexican…
Examples of fast foods you can find here are:
hot dogs, pizza, kebab, sushi, wok, hamburgers (yes, we have McDonald’s…).
