What is Smörgåsbord?

A traditional Swedish Smörgåsbord or buffet consists of both hot and cold dishes. Bread, butter, and cheese are always part of the Smörgåsbord. It is customary to begin with the cold fish dishes which are generally various forms of herring, salmon, and eel. After eating the first portion, people usually continue with the second course (other cold dishes), and round off with hot dishes. Dessert is always included in the European Hotel by Miss Maud Smörgåsbord.
