Swede's enjoy a simple, elegant cuisine based on meats, fish and seafood, potatoes, cabbage, root vegetables and a variety of fresh berries. Hearty and warming meatballs and dumplings are popular, often served with cream-based sauces. Tart lingonberry jam is a beloved condiment and cuts through any heaviness. Pea soup is traditional on Thursdays. The Swedish smörgåsbord, a buffet feast, is world-famous.
