Michelin-starred chefs turn Sweden into the world’s largest gourmet restaurant…
By James Herring on Tuesday, January 29, 2019
To highlight healthy and natural food available in nature, Sweden, together with four Swedish Michelin-starred chefs, is launching The Edible Country – a 100-million-acre-DIY gourmet restaurant.
The restaurant, with a menu created from ingredients found in Swedish nature, is free of charge and open for reservations.
In this new global initiative, Sweden is showing the world how easy and accessible healthy food can be. The Edible Country consists of a nine-course menu that visitors can prepare and cook themselves – in the wild.
It is co-created by Swedish Michelin-starred chefs Titti Qvarnström, Niklas Ekstedt, Jacob Holmström and Anton Bjuhr.
As part of the initiative, seven handmade wooden tables have been placed across the country with ready-to-use kitchen kits and cooking tools.
The tables are bookable between May and September through visitsweden.com
“Sweden is 96 percent uninhabited and yet easily accessible for everyone. Our nature is filled with edible ingredients and we want to invite the world to enjoy them, and at the same time wind down in nature like us Swedes do. By using our star chefs’ menu, this new and innovative DIY culinary experience makes it possible for visitors to explore and transform nature into gourmet food themselves,” says Jennie Skogsborn Missuna, Chief Experience Officer at Visit Sweden.
