Adventurous, war-thirsty Vikings, set sail in search of riches on their drakkars to conquer Europe, Russia, the Mediterranean and North America in the 10th century! Out on the oceans for long periods of time, they were skilled hands at preserving their food by smoking it. This love for smoked foods, typically fish or game has remained with the Scandinavians ever since.
