Fascinating sign

What is Lutefisk?

Interesting it says Holland, Norway, Europe -- is that informing folk that Holland & Norway are both in Europe, or is it implying that European Food [whatever that is] is different from Dutch and Norwegian food?

so many questions - maybe I'm reading it too closely!

Wow...they surely have covered all the bases! Great pick for today.

See there, I'm so behind I haven't even had time to come back and follow up on important questions, like "What is lutefisk?"

I've actually never tasted it, but it's a Scandinavian "delicacy" made from air-dried cod or stockfish that has been prepared with lye. Yep, you read that right: lye. For more detail than you could possibly want, including celebratory songs, check out the Wikipedia entry.

Where Scandinavians gather in the US, places like Ballard in Seattle or Poulsbo on the Olympic Peninsula, lutefisk is not at all uncommon. I've heard it's more popular among Norwegian immigrants, for example, than among Norwegians who live in Norway.

Anyone else want to opine on lutefisk?
