Norse food has a poor reputation in the SCA for being largely inedible. It's not anyone's fault, the Norse were often living in inhospitable climates where food was food and it kept you from starving. This has led to such modern cultural delicacies as smoked sheepshead and the bane of my childhood, Lutefisk. This post will go through my process for developing a lunch menu that was interesting and appetizing while staying as true as possible to what we know of the Norse diet.
