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 Tuesdays and Thursdays May – Sept. 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 Asa, Småland
Deep forests and thousands of dazzling lakes are perhaps the two most prominent features of Småland’s nature. Here, traditional and organic food is cherished and Småland’s nature is often used to inspire local menus. Taste the flavours of Småland as you venture along the various trails, and don’t forget to pick the fresh and plentiful lingonberries. The table is located at Asa Herrgård only 45 minutes by car from Växjö. If it’s fully booked, don’t worry – there is another 100 million acres full of places to sit down and have a fine do-it-yourself meal.
