If you want to annoy a Norwegian from “Trøndelag”, just call “sodd” for meat soup.
Source: “Norwegian Food: Do they really eat this?“
Sodd is made off boiled grey meat and grey meatballs in grey broth served with flatbread. In order to give the dish some colour, one adds chunks of cooked carrots. This aesthetically doubtful dish is served at weddings and celebrations in Trøndelag.
Virtually no Norwegian outside that region in the middle of the country eats sodd.
