Smoked perch, a field pea wafer with herb-stuffed orange milkcap mushrooms and pickled sea buckthorn
Seasonal plants* in an elk roulade, potato cake with Jämtland white cellar-matured goat’s cheese, baked root vegetables, a rowanberry jam and pickled blackcurrants
*Seasonal plants will change: Stems and leaves of vegetables are used in the autumn, while in the spring it might be wild plants such as ground elder and nettles, and in the summer, spinach.
Deep-fried barley doughnuts with a baked sweet cheese, and lingonberries marinated with spruce shoots
As the popular saying has it, Jämtland is a wonderful place to be. Beautiful in the summer when the trout are biting and the cloudberries calling. Fun in the winter to glide on skis into miles of fells.

Using the classic Jämtland wall hanging from 1968 as a table runner, we place the county itself front and centre. It was painted by Paul Sahlin for Frösö Handtryck, also the source of the napkins.
The display incorporates birch from the forest, ceramics from Katjas Keramik in Kälen in natural colours, glasses from Storsjöhyttan, and the Jämtland table service decorated with the cross on the Frösö Stone, the northernmost rune stone in the world. Past and present interact in a living table setting as the main course is shared across the table.
