Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway and lies in the county of Trøndelag, in the middle of Norway.

Trøndelag is an extremely diverse region with rich, natural resources. The soil, climate, ocean currents, coastal landscapes, cool, dry plains and mountains, long summer nights, full of light and dark winters all contributes to the diverse and unique flavors of the food produced here.

In Trøndelag you find some of the best waters for crayfish, crab, scallops and mussels. The region is also known for its agricultural products such as pork, chicken, lamb, beef, vegetables and berries. Not to mention, the abundance of mushrooms, native plants and herbs and wild game. Trøndelag is a trailblazer when it comes to producing organic dairy and meat. And we are very proud of our food traditions and world-class produce.

The food capital of Norway

In addition to three Michelin Star restaurants, Trondheim has culinary gems at every corner, serving top notch, local products from both land and sea. It is known that the local producers and chefs of this area are uncompromising when it comes to quality. They are proud of the produce and use their craft to bring out the most incredible flavors. All of this reflects the amazing pantry, and the knowledge to process and convey it to the guest.

The diversity of the region

In addition to the city of Trondheim, Trøndelag consists of several smaller towns and many villages. Food is a way of building strong connections between rural and urban lifestyle. Through food, the consumers see that the produce and experience produced in the surrounding rural areas benefits the city, while at the same time the rural areas benefit from the market, knowledge communities and attractiveness of a larger city.
