Smörgåsbord, Swedish buffet.

Smörgåsbord (Swedish: [ˈsmœrɡɔsˌbuːɖ] ( listen)) is a type of Scandinavian meal served buffet-style with multiple dishes of various foods on a table, originating in Sweden.[1] In Norway it is called koldtbord, in Denmark it is called det kolde bord, in Finland seisova pöytä and in Estonia rootsi laud. Smörgåsbord became internationally known as Smorgasbord at the 1939 New York World's Fair when it was offered at the Swedish Pavilion's "Three Crowns Restaurant."[2] It is typically a celebratory meal and guests can help themselves from a range of dishes laid out for their choice. In a restaurant, the term refers to a buffet-style table laid out with many small dishes from which, for a fixed amount of money, one is allowed to choose as many as one wishes.
