How does the Lapland winter-autumn taste? Come with me to the nearby forest and in to my house to discover, taste and learn more. The seasons change quickly in the north - there is not 4, but 8 seasons here! I want to give you an understanding of what it takes to adapt to the changes, as well as give you tastes that signifies the different seasons. We start with a small hike in the nearby forest to taste the autumn, winter and winter-spring flavors. Then we go on to the meadows to find spring, spring-summer and summer flavors (total walk appx 1 km). While having flavoursome taste bites made from birch, pine, juniper, meadowsweet, rosebay willowhearb, angelica, cloudberries and many more, you will learn about the trees, plants and berries together with traditional foraging. We finish our walk at my house situated in a special community called Lappstan. Here all houses have their own wooden tipi for smoking meat and fish - a traditional way of preserving food. In my kitchen I have set the table with summer-autumn tastes like my own herbal tea, smoked reindeer meat and lingonberry cake. Get to know more about the local culture and everyday living in Swedish Lapland.
My biggest passion and profession is nature food, especially wild herbs and berries which I forage, refine and hold courses in. As a food and culture connoisseur I cooperate with local Sámi companies and organize guided taste tours all year. I frequently share my knowledge in national radio as well as in magazines worldwide. On my tours we discover the local everyday life as well as the wild nature filled with herbs and berries foraged. We end up in my home and kitchen for you to explore. I love to share the essence of Lapland in a personal, informative way that will stimulate your senses!
