Norway’s food scene is booming. Today, you can enjoy food festivals throughout the whole country, all year round.

“I think there are several reasons for the growing interest for food, and especially local food. More and more people are concerned with what they eat. We want quality products as well as knowledge about the roots and history of the food we buy. We travel more, discover new regions and their culture. And with that comes the interest for local specialities", says Aslaug Rustad, CEO of Oi! Trøndersk Mat og Drikke.

Rustad is based in Trøndelag, which is known as Norway’s leading food region. She works with local producers on a daily basis and has visited several food festivals during her career.

Below you can read about her top five recommendations.
