Swedish cuisine is known as simple with an important role for game, minced meat, sausage, fish, fruits and pastries. However, there are some important regional differences. In the far north, pork-filled potato dumplings (pitepalt) are eaten. Inland, they like to make a fruit soup from rosehips (nyponsoppa). In the south, apples and onions (äpplefläsk) stuffed with pork, as well as a casserole meal with cubes of potatoes and meat served with a fried egg (pyttipanna) are enjoyed. In the south, you will also find most influences from other kitchens.

Because meat is rather expensive, cheaper meat products such as minced meat and sausages play an important role in the Swedish menu. An important fish in the menu is herring, which is often used in a sweet dish.

A few famous Swedish dishes are:
