The location for this masterclass is Drakamollan, an old farmstead converted by Ingalill into a small luxury countryside hotel. Nestled deep in the lush beech forests and gently rolling hills of Southern Sweden. Drakamollan provides guests from near and far a world-class experience where no detail is too small, nor overlooked.  All carefully orchestrated to allow each guest to experience Drakamollan’s greatest treasure – an awe-inspiring sense of harmony and serenity that stirs one’s soul.

During the masterclass the participants will have exclusive access to the hotel including kitchen facilities.

World class local traditions and produce will serve as inspiration during the masterclass. Among others we will visit one of the last eel fishers who is working hard to have this tradition listed as a UNESO World Heritage http://www.hånsa.nu.
