The exact dish is a carefully protected secret at the moment. What we do know is that last year guests were served no less than grilled seal, a controversial choice, but a dish that is intrinsically traditional in the outer archipelago. Two years ago, a dish based on seabirds was served. Matglädje is of course much more than the organisers’ vision and passion. It is the authentic food that attracts artisan food producers and guests to Houtskär. – The stalls at ”Taste Street” sell artisan and locally produced foods. The products are tasty, healthy and ecological says Skaag Aside from food and produce, visitors can get buy local archipelago handicrafts. What else happens? A top chef gives tips and advice as delicious dishes are prepared. Fun activities for kids, a tractor cavalcade and a dance band all create a festive atmosphere typical of a thriving archipelago village. Matglädje is organised at the end of August.
