FOOD EXPERIENCES

“I was delighted to be part of Jokkmokk as a Culinary Capital the other year! I participated as a food creator together with our skilled food artisans and producers, taking care of all that is available in the Jokkmokk region. I inform about edible plants and berries and offer exciting taste experiences, through a taste performance or a guided tour around my home in Lappstan. Welcome to share the taste of Jokkmokk! “
