The 17th of May is the Norwegian Constitution day. A happy day filled with Champagne, Blue-White-Red Norwegian flags, people wearing their traditional Bunad and delicious and regressive food.
Traditionally, Norwegians start with the Champagne breakfast as early as 7am, then go to the parade that takes place in their city to watch the young kids walking with their school classmates, and finally either host a party at their place or head to a crowded restaurant.
What is traditional 17th of May food? As it is a day of celebration, it is common to indulge yourself with lots of sweets and alcohol (remember to drink with moderation… of course!). On the table, you will find: homemade pavlova with Norwegian colors, salmon gravlax, delicious scrambled eggs, the best-cured meat (mostly Spanish) and cheese.
