summer foraging
Foraging for wild mushrooms.

Hello and welcome to my foraging and wild food universe!

My name is Helena, and I am a 27-year-old forager from Denmark. I enjoy being in nature while discovering new places and tasting wild food. I enjoy cooking with wild food – indoor and outdoor and developing new recipes. I find it fascinating that the environment around us is a natural pantry, that is waiting for us to be found. With Skovkær, I hope to inspire you to get started foraging and cooking with ingredients straight from nature.

My interest in wild food and nature, in general, comes from my father and my uncle, who are both biologists and have been working with edible mushrooms for more than 30 years. Excursions and holidays in the Nordic countries are therefore a family tradition, where we most often go into the forests and search for wild food. In the evenings, we prepare and eat what we have found. We are mostly searching for wild edible mushrooms, plants, herbs, nuts, and berries.

On skovkaer.com you will find wild food recipes and blog posts about wild edibles and foraging, tips and tricks, and hopefully, inspire you to start foraging yourself.

I love having a seasonal approach on my site and there will therefore be plenty of inspiration for all seasons. I hope you have learned more about Skovkær, and I am looking forward to hearing from you on social media or by sending me a message on the contact page.


Happy foraging!
