Pädaste Mushroom Weekend

Mushroom picking nature-walk

Saturday, 10 September 2022



Mushroom picking nature-walk under the guidance of mycologist Veiko Kastanje. Pädaste’s horticulturist, who takes care of the daily foraging for Alexander Restaurant, will also join us. Prepare to be amazed by how many different mushrooms grow in our forests, which we may never notice during our everyday mushroom picking nature-walks. Veiko has a story to tell about every mushroom he sees in the forest.

This year the nature-walk will end with a special surprise. In the middle of mushrooms and nature our chef will prepare a delicious bite of the mushrooms you picked during the walk. A real treat for any forager.



Veiko Kastanje has studied mycology and botany at Tartu University; also worked as a guest researcher at Helsinki University, University of Gothenburg and National Botanical Garden of Belgium. Veiko is using every opportunity for travelling, making mushroom trips or organizing mushroom exhibitions. He has also translated several mushroom picking and identification handbooks into Estonian.


Our Chef de Cuisine has created a fabulous 4-course dinner in which foraged mushrooms will play a significant role.


Price per person 150 EUR inclusive of the mushroom picking nature-walk accompanied by our horticulturist and Veiko Kastanje, a bite in the forest, manor made Schnapps on the road and the dinner.

Wines and beverages not included.

Mushroom picking starts at 14:00, dinner at 20:00.
