The Edible Country – Dalarna


This summer, Sweden will become the world’s largest do-it-yourself gourmet restaurant. In Kloster in southern Dalarna you’ll be able to book a spot at our handmade wooden table, where you can cook your own food from fresh and exciting ingredients sourced directly from nature and the area surrounding your table.


Visit Sweden initiated the “The Edible Country” concept and, working together with Swedish regions, they’ve created the opportunity to book a do-it-yourself meal with menus composed by Michelin-starred chefs.

The table can be booked by one group at a time so you and your company will be all alone at the table that seats 12 persons, but it can be booked by a smaller group as well. You can reserve the table from Monday to Saturday (closed Sundays) between the 11th of May and the 26th of September. You have the option to book a do-it-yourself lunch basked filled with local produce, recipe and everything that is needed to prepare the food on site outside in nature.

Foraging and cooking outdoors is a fun, rewarding experience but it can also be a bit of a challenge. If you want to make life a little easier for yourself, book the cooking kit with an ingredients basket and instructions for a more relaxed lunch al fresco. For a really complete experience, you can even book a foraging guide and chef if you want to learn more about cooking in nature.

Kloster Bordet

Kloster mining estate with surroundings

Kloster has been a bustling area since the 1400s, when smelting-houses for iron and copper production were built here. The spot received its name from a Cistercian monastery that was built here and completed in 1486 CE, as Sweden’s northernmost monastery. You can still see the foundations from the monastery next to Kloster museum, where you can learn more about the area’s rich history. Kloster manor was built in the 1700s and is located close by alongside a reopened English park. The table is placed in a nature reserve next to the English park, a 10-minute easy walk from Kloster manor. It’s easily accessible for wheelchairs.

The table is part of the initiative “The Edible Country” that Visit Sweden launched, and it gives you the possibility to book a make-it-yourself meal where the menu is created by renowned chefs. Görgen Tidén, chef and entrepreneur, brings you a tasty adventure:

- Let’s go to the woods! For those that wants to join this will be an experience you won’t forget any time soon. Just think about it, sitting at a handmade table made from old pine, cook yourself or choose the option to be served a menu that is designed just for this moment. Some call that exclusive fine dining… I call it common sense.
