Dalarna is in central Sweden - the name itself means ‘the valleys’, and extends from misty mountains to rolling farmland. Here you can find immersive forests; waterfalls; and lakes – unspoiled nature at its finest.
The food in Dalarna is influenced by nature - artisanal breads, crisp and soft, to which we add a range of mushrooms, lingon berries and blueberries from our forests. Book a place at the table and enjoy nature in southern Dalarna with friends and family. The table is located in Kloster, amidst the 15th century ruins of a Cistercian monastery next to a flowing stream. Within 2 hours by car from Stockholm and 20km from the town of Hedemora.
How it works
1. Book your seats at the table for free. Please note that the booking is for seats at the table and local DIY recipes – no meals, chefs or table decor are included in the booking.
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
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.
Reservation is closed for now, but the Edible Country tables will be open for bookings again in 2020.
Sourcing truly local ingredients in the forests of Sweden - the Edible Country.
Besides the fine DIY dining at The Edible Country, the region is rich in nature to explore: kayaking and canoeing on the glittering Lake of Orsa; extensive cycle tours tailored along 900km of marked trails through wilderness, mountains and towns. Hiking paths through the moorland and mountains of Fulufjället National Park where you can also visit Sweden’s oldest tree, Old Tjikko, and the country’s highest waterfall. Visit the guide Taste of Dalarna to find out more about local food and beverage producers, restaurants, cafes and farm shops.
