    Great roundup! I always love learning about other cultures. My grandparents were Swedish and we would always have caviar, roasted lamb and Glogg during the holidays. So good!

      Erin, so important to keep family food culture going as well. It is such an interesting topic. We have not been to Scandinavia and it is on our bucket list to go.

      I do love the color of the shopska salad. Almost the colors of Christmas.

      Yes the smoked turkey is a highlight. But then so is the pork, lamb etc. etc.

    Wow, so many delicious options to choose from! I am a huge fan of lamb (I don’t eat it enough!) so I think that would probably be my favorite but they really all look amazing!

      The lamb is a favorite from where we come from. There is so much good food from all over the world, so nice to share the love around.

      Thank you so much. There is great food from all different parts of the world, so good for other folks to see what is popular from other parts of the world.

  8. I simply love this roundup, because I love food from around the world. It’s one of my favorite things about traveling, eating and learning about their food, and I feel like I literally just went around the world. YUMMY!!

      I agree with you about travel and food. The food enjoyed from traveling is one of the main reasons we actually do travel. You can learn so much about the culture of various countries by discovering what and how they eat.
