The Edible Country is a do-it-yourself restaurant where visitors forage and cook their own food by themselves or with a little help from our local guides at one of 13 tables placed in the middle of Swedish nature.
How it works: 1. Book your seats at the table for free. Please note that the booking is for seats at the table and DIY recipes – no meals are included in the booking. The table is available on Wednesdays May - September. 2. Once you’ve made a reservation you will receive an email from your local contact about the experience and how to book add-ons like a cooking kit with basic supplies, a local chef or a foraging guide, accommodation and more. 3. Come to the table and enjoy! We can promise you an unforgettable experience.
Why book add-ons? Foraging and cooking in nature is a fun and rewarding experience, but can also be a bit of a challenge. Why not book an add-on like a cooking kit or a local foraging guide? It makes it more relaxed and gives you the chance to learn more about the region and its cuisine.
The Edible Country in Kittelfältet, Värmland
Värmland is home to Sweden’s biggest lake, Vänern. With more than 22,000 islands and islets to explore, you can rest assured that no boredom will take place here. Well ashore, there are approximately 200 km of trails to hike, so make sure your boots are made for hiking, and you’re keeping an eye out for the rare white moose that are known to roam the area. The table is located at Brattforsheden with Kittelfältets nature reserve only 40 minutes by car from Karlstad.
