Most traditional Faroese cuisine involves meat, either lamb or fish. The traditional Faroese kitchen mainly owes its food traditions to the archipelagoÂ´s harsh climate. This is due to the fact that in earlier days the food culture on the islands was not very extensive. It is hard to find a Faroese dish on the menu of a restaurant, but it is possible at certain restaurants and hotels.
Distinctive Faroese foods include:
Wild seabirds fx puffins. The puffins are stuffed with cake and served with potatoes and wild berries
SkerpikjÃ¸t, dried mutton that has been hung for over a year and is eaten raw
RÃ¦st kjÃ¸t, meat that has been hung for a couple of months to mature before cooking
RÃ¦stur fiskur, dried fish that has been hung in the same way as rÃ¦stkjÃ¸t
Turrur fiskur, dried fish
Grind og spik, whale meat and blubber
