Here is the question :
WHAT REGION IS KNOWN FOR ITS TRADITIONAL DISH OF LUTEFISK?
Here is the option for the question :
- British Isles
And, the answer for the the question is :
[STC00122] Lutefisk is a classic dish from Scandinavia that is created with fish that has been dried, salted, and then pickled in lye, which gives the meal a gelatinous consistency.
Although the history of the dish is unclear (many myths claim that the Vikings were responsible for its creation), lutefisk has been a staple food in Scandinavia for centuries.
The region has a long history of fishing, and cod that has been dried and salted would give nutrition throughout the colder months.
The production of lye involved heating ash from beech or birch wood in water and then filtering the resulting mixture.
In current times, the dish is no longer popular in Scandinavia; but, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Scandinavian immigrants brought it to the American Midwest.
There, lutefisk dinners continue to be a beloved (though sometimes divisive) fall and winter custom.
