Explore Blekinge's wonderful waters
The flavors of Blekinge, like many aspects of life in the region, owe much to the sea. Local staples include fish soup, fried herring, salmon and eel, but game and locally produced cheeses feature heavily, as well. Matakademi works tirelessly to preserve Blekinge’s culinary traditions, and are a visitor’s best bet to find authentic specialties, while places like Orranäs Gårdsmejeri keep cheese-making practices alive.
Similarly, Blekinge’s craft beer and cider breweries and vineyards are thriving, with new microbreweries emerging regularly. Carlskrona Bryggeri has preserved traditional craft heritage using recipes from the 19th century, while Bryggeri Skeppsgossen has developed an impressive 16 distinct varieties of brew.
