When the word "smaker" was first introduced, "tastes like" was translated to "smaker av," but here it's "smaker som." I'm not entirely sure of when to use which. :/

You can say "Brødet smaker (som) tre". 'som'(like) can be omitted. What was the sentence given for 'av'?

Can you also use the word 'ved' here in place of 'tre'? I remember learning 'ved til peisen' meaning 'wood for the fire'. Mange takk!

"Ved" is specifically firewood.

A sentence I'm sure was used often in older days, when bread would be cut with sawdust!
