Nature gastronomy in Slettestrand
According to a law Jutland's from 1241 you are allowed to collect everything that fits in your basket. And there is a lot to collect in Jammerbugten, where more than 370 etable plants are growing wild. Once, the wild plants were a natural ingredient in everyone's kitchen. Nowadays we forgot how to use them, but it is possible to learn it at Madsmedjen in Slettestrand. Here you can, amongst others, learn about the nature's pantry in a cozy environment with a beam ceiling, lambskin, rustic wooden table and a smoky smell from the wooden stoves, that are used for roasting and smoking everything from mackerel and deer to herbs such as yarrow and sweet gale. They are calling it nature gastronomy, a special food experience, where the participants collect wild ingredients in nature themselves and help in the kitchen. It is all about closeness to nature and a great dish.
