10 Scandinavian Food Bloggers You Should Follow The Best Restaurant-Focused Accounts to Check Out

Who are the most dedicated, passionate, and influential food bloggers that write about restaurants in Scandinavia? Three years ago, we asked this question to a select group of foodies, chefs, and restaurateurs in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. At the time, there were very few names that came up, but over the last few years lots of passionate foodies have emerged in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, and beyond, sharing their recommendations on Instagram, YouTube, and on their blogs. So, we thought it was time for an update to this guide – here are the best food and restaurant bloggers to follow in Scandinavia.

While there are many wonderful home cooks and bloggers creating recipes out there, we decided to focus this list on restaurant bloggers only. Therefore, the most obvious criteria for making it to this list is that the blogger has to live in Scandinavia and post primarily and frequently from Scandinavian restaurants. We also differentiated between individual bloggers and websites that have become more like big media houses – we want to support the small, independent creators. These are people who take all their own photos, not just repost accounts that steal content from others. We believe we have managed to put together a good selection of some of the most prominent food writers, photographers, and videographers out there, with representation in most major cities of Scandinavia, as well as bloggers who live outside the capitals. While not everyone writes in English on their blogs, most have international Instagram accounts – so follow them for the best food recommendations in their respective cities! The list is unrated, by the way; all placements below are random.

2. Pierre Orsander from Malmö, Sweden

Pierre Orsander is the hungriest man in Malmö! On his account @skitgott (sh*t good!) and on his blog, he covers all of the best restaurants in his hometown, from falafel to fine dining. Pierre writes strictly in Swedish, but the language of his drool-worthy food photos is universal. This ambitious diner has eaten at over 300 restaurants in Malmö, and rumor has it he once ate at 40 restaurants in one day.

3. Rasmus Palsgård from Copenhagen, Denmark

For a fine dining-focused blog, head over to the world of Feinschmeckeren. Rasmus Palsgård can often be spotted at the fanciest restaurants in Denmark and beyond, sporting his signature bow tie, a glass of Champagne in hand, while indulging in caviar and truffles. Indeed, Rasmus knows how to live the life of a true gourmet. If you understand Danish, the articles on his website are a joy to read. If not, follow him on Instagram (where he posts in English) for the most luxurious food and wine in Copenhagen (and occasionally around the world).

  • Great post Anders! I would like to recommend Jimmy Wallentin, Jimmys kitchen, who post superb videos on different foods and recipes he makes himself, but also about restaurants he visits!

    • Hi Kati. Scandinavia is comprised only by Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. While Finland and Iceland are included in “the Nordics.” That being said, I don’t really know of anyone who blogs about food in these countries that I could read (so in English in other words). Not anyone that really stands out at least. As for the food scenes of the two countries, I find them interesting. I’ve been to both Reykjavik and Helsinki, and guides are coming.
