Thought it was time for my classic "tell us about local food/drinks in your country/region" thread again.

So what type's of food and drinks are very common there? Or what type of special (regional) products you have their which you won't commonly find elsewhere?

I myself may post later on but I want to give other Dutchies a chanche too to post about our Bitterbal, Kroket and Kaassouflé etc. so... :p

I don't eat typical traditional Austrian food all that often, but i do enjoy it when i have it. Things like Dumplings, Nockerln, Sauerkraut, Apfelstrudel (and a million other sweet dishes & pastries) are well-known local foods, and of course the Wiener Schnitzel ;)

Aside from that Vienna is known for being responsible for Coffee being introduced to the West (and the obligatory croissant), so there are a lot of typical coffeehouses which i also enjoy visiting occasionally.

Edit: Section, that thing looks insane. I want to try it.

Edit II: as by the Admiral's request i will look for good pictures once i get home from work ;)

Feel free to post pictures guys. ;) For a picture says more then a thousand words...

Pictures are even more evil, increasing the appetite (well most of the time... unless you post that Swedish Surstrom...).

Common food, hm, let me think.

The most popular Finnish vegetable. :lookaround:

Porridges, usually made of oats.

Traditional and rather popular Easter-food, mämmi. It actually looks worse than in the picture, but is nonetheless yummy.

Pea soup. Cheap, often served on Thursdays, especially in schools. In the military it is served every Thursday, but thus thats also the place to go if you want to find the best pea soup.

Rye bread. Other kinds of breads do exist, but these are probably the most popular, and also the healthiest.

Drinks Milk, this is generally the prefered drink with meals.

Sour milk, a less popular milk product, thicker than milk. Good for your stomach, but doesn't go as well with everything as ordinary milk.

Beer. I don't drink it so I don't know if Finnish beer really is as bad as it is supposed to be, but markets seem to be full of especially 12-packs.

Coffee. Finns drink most coffee per capita in the world. (Source) No fancy stuff, just coffee with or without milk and sometimes sugar. Nuff said.

Spirits, especially Koskenkorva.

The "cotoletta alla milanese" is the most typical dish in my city. Here' s a pic

Then we have some cheese like the Rosa Camuna, the Asiago, the Gorgonzola (or Zola) and many many others.

Last but not least our salami in Milan is in competition with the hungarian one...

Oh, yeah, and the Polenta but it' s not very regional... My region developed another kind of Polenta... It' s better the one in Treviso though...
