James Norton tries lutefisk so you don’t have to

Scandinavia offers many culinary delights. Lutefisk isn’t one of them.

CHOW Supertaster (and editor of local food site the Heavy Table) James Norton takes on one of Scandinavia’s most notorious delicacies: lutefisk. The encounter doesn’t go very well: the problem isn’t so much the flavor but the texture, which Norton likens to “clear fish Jell-o.” Yum.
