Show on google maps

Skåne is the southern-most region in Sweden and the country’s larder. Its flowing fields, beech forests and endless sand beaches are fruitful to say the least, and open for you to enjoy. With a strong focus on locally produced ingredients and sustainable production, the food landscape of Skåne is one of slow food and joie de vivre. This is the place for travellers looking for a slower pace of life and authentic tastes that spring from the rich, local soil. It surprised no one here that when The New York Times recently listed the most exciting food destinations of the moment, Skåne made it to their list. Reserve spots at this table and enjoy the beautiful surroundings together with friends and family. The table is placed in the beautiful beech tree forest in the middle of Skåne. Reach the table by train and hike for about 8 km, following our instructions. Or arrive by car to Ormanäs, park by the small farm and stroll the last few meters to the table in the forest.

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. The table is bookable every Thursday between May to 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.

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.
