Noway’s cuisine reflects both its climate and its culture. Because of the country’s high mountains, steep fjords and sweeping plateaus, only a small percentage of Norway’s land is arable. Traditionally, farms were small and subsistence-oriented. From the 1500s to the 1800s Norway’s population remained at the very limits of what the country’s agriculture could sustain. In order to survive, Norwegians had to supplement their diets with hunting, fishing, and gathering – as well as pioneering some fairly extreme methods for preserving and storing foods.
