Today, let’s take an in-depth look at Portugal and Scandinavia!
A brand new booth this year, Portugal brings some very different tastes to the Festival. We started out with the calamari salad with fennel, olive oil, and smoked paprika. The flavor here mostly comes from the fennel and olive oil, but the dish is unlike any other at the Festival!
The Pastel de Nata in Portugal is a fun and unique dessert. Basically a custard in a crust, the simple, light flavors tasted like vanilla to me! Definitely worth a try.
The Linguica Sausage with onions, peppers, and olives (mostly olives…) was outstanding. A super-spicy sausage accented with delicious flavors from the vegetables made for a hearty and savory dish. This was my favorite from Portugal.

Scandinavia is returning this year after a hiatus at the festival, and brings us some cold-weather favorites! The Swedish meatballs with lingon berries (yay, lingon berries!!) was a winner for me. I liked the sweet paired with the savory in this dish.
But the rice pudding with berries was outstanding! My favorite item at this booth, hands down, was this dessert. Very creamy, with a depth a flavor you wouldn’t expect. The interesting textures made for a unique dish. Yum!!
The Taste of Scandinavia was my least favorite dish here, as I imagine it will be for most folks. Cold fish and shrimp just didn’t make my taste buds shiver…
Luckily, I followed up with the Xante Sunshine cocktail, featuring Xante pear and cognac liquor. This sweet cocktail — with a touch of tartness — was delicious.
