Värmland is a county renowned for its food. Products from the farms, forests, lakes and rivers of the area have always formed the basis of traditional simple home cooking as well as of the fine cuisine we treat ourselves to on special occasions. They still characterize the menus of many restaurants, conference centres and manors. Several small-scale food producers have a café, with refreshments and lunches, in their farm shops.
