Ok, speaking about Nordic-Finnish kitchen:
Despite the popular pizza & kebab culture the typical Finnish kitchen is still alive and kicking: all kinds of fish like salmon and herrings, dark rye bread, wild berries and mushrooms, different milk products, reindeer are still popular. Finland was part of Sweden for 600y and part of Czarist Russia next 100y, so the traditional Finnish kitchen is influenced especially by those two cultures.
The rye bread is still so popular here even McDonalds have been selling a special McRye burger, good news for Finns is that rye is found out to be a real health food.

the problem with lutefisk is when you use cod to make it, the odor leaves much to be desired. Make it from haddock or pollock and you avoid that pungent smell

Reindeer... in tube form.
