Gothenburg, the Culinary Capital of Sweden 2012

Reinforcing its status as the culinary hotbed of Northern Europe, Gothenburg has been named the Culinary Capital of Sweden 2012. At a recent ceremony the city was awarded the title in recognition of its wealth and quality of natural produce, often incorporating fresh ingredients from the west coast.

Judges were impressed by Gothenburg’s partnerships within West Sweden – connecting town and countryside, small-scale and industrial food production – explaining that this helps to make the city very attractive to national and international visitors. The modern approach to cuisine is based on Swedish traditions combined with new tastes and ideas from all over the world.

Gothenburg is the only Swedish city in the international gastronomic network Delice. Highlights of Gothenburg’s cuisine scene include its four Michelin-starred restaurants plus the famous indoor fish market, ‘Feskekorka’. The Gothia Towers’ king size prawn sandwich is the most popular dish in Gothenburg. Last year’s sales equalled 155,611.
