  1. 1. AustriaAustria Austrian food is rich in texture and has a unique flavor. Austrian cuisine was influenced by the countries surrounding it. These countries are Germany, Hungary, and Italy. The most consumed meats in Austria are chicken, beef, and pork. Pastries, sweets, jams, and cakes are also Austrian favorites. Some famous Austrian dishes are Wiener Schnitzel and Apple Strudel. It is believed that the Wiener Schnitzel originally came from Milan, Italy and was introduced to Viennese cuisine in the 16th century.
  2. 2. NorwayNorway Traditional Norwegian food is smoked salmon. It is cooked many ways and is served with dill, egg and different kinds of sauces. Other kinds of fish that are commonly eaten are smoked herring, sardines, cod and mackerel. Whale meat and horsemeat are often used to make Norwegian sausages.
  3. 3. EnglandEngland The English have healthy and filling meals everyday. Because England began to trade with India in the 18th century, India had a great influence on English food. The food became more flavorful with many herbs and spices. Tarts, cakes, pastries, pies, and pudding are very common in English cuisine. Toast, coffee, and cereal are also often eaten, especially during breakfast.
  4. 4. SpainSpain Spanish food is a blend of Roman, Greek, and Celtic food. The Greeks and Romans introduced grapes, wine, and olives. Meat pies and fish came from the Celts. Ingredients such as garbanzo beans, lentils, and green beans are often used in dishes. Potatoes, rice, almonds, sesame seeds, onions, tomatoes, eggs, red bell peppers, and olive oil make up most Spanish dishes and offer Spaniards tasty meals.
  5. 5. FranceFrance French cuisine has a rich history of sophisticated dishes and plentiful feasts. Because of the rich soil, many herbs, fruits, grains, and vegetables are grown in France. Brandy and wine are the most popular French alcoholic drinks. Cheese is very important for French cuisine and is used in numerous dishes. Veal, chicken, goose, duck, mutton, and pork are great meats that French dishes have to offer.
  6. 6. GermanyGermany Food in Germany is important to its culture. The most popular meats in Germany are pork, veal, and beef. Germans love to smoke or pickle meat since it gives a great flavor to the food. Germans typically eat breads, sausages, meats, vegetables, and cheeses. Potatoes are essential to German cuisine and are found in many dishes. Breakfast is made up of jam, eggs, cheese, and meat. The most famous German dish is considered to be Sauerkraut.
  7. 7. GreeceGreece Greek cuisine is very old and began thousands of years ago. Most of the foods eaten by Greeks today were influenced by the foods eaten in Ancient Greece. However, the Romans and Persian also had an effect on Greek food. Pasta and sauces were brought by Romans, and the Persians introduced pastries, sweets, and yogurt. Greek dishes often include fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, cheese, and bread. Olives and soup are well-known in Greece as well.
  8. 8. ItalyItaly France, Austria, and the former Yugoslavia had a great effect on the cooking techniques and food of Italy. Italian cuisine is based on a few dishes. These famous dishes are pasta, lasagna, ravioli, and pizza. Italian food is very spicy and often includes ingredients such as crushed red pepper, black pepper, red bell pepper, and green bell pepper. Cheese is also an indispensable ingredient. A few types of Italian cheese are romano, parmesan, mozzarella, ricotta, and gorgonzola.
  9. 9. PortugalPortugal The food in Portugal is often filling, rich and full of flavor. It is very much like the food of the Mediterranean. The former colonies of Portugal contributed many different spices that include piri piri (small, spicy chili peppers), as well as cinnamon, black pepper, saffron and vanilla. Olive oil is also one of the common bases of the foods of Portugal.
  10. 10. Some of the traditional dishes of Sweden are hundreds of years old, but are still an essential part of the everyday meals of the people. There is a very long coast and many rivers and lakes. This makes seafood and fish a large part of the Swedish diet and most Swedes love seafood including salmon that is usually marinated or smoked. A common Swedish breakfast is a sandwich made of different kinds of soft breads, cottage cheese, cream cheese, cold cuts, eggs, goat cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes or toast. All this is often served with juice, coffee and honey. SwedenSweden

Historically, Switzerland was a farming country, and the most popular crops and foods include cheese and potatoes as well as chocolate. SwitzerlandSwitzerland
  12. 12. CyprusCyprus Throughout its history, the island of Cyprus has been invaded and occupied by many different civilizations. Because of this, the traditional cuisine of Cyprus has been affected by the different people who have lived there. While the food in this country does carry strong Turkish and Greek influences, it is also widely affected by the climate, history and geography. Fast food and other kinds of western cuisines have also carried a strong influence on the day to day eating habits of the people in this country.
