Fine dining in the fields
The white farmstead is a little hidden away but guests have been finding their way to Karlaby Kro for more than ten years, to enjoy their luxury weekend packages with romantic dinners and swim in the large, heated indoor pool. After a several-year slump during which owners Sophie and Pär Bonér sold the place in order to run a hotel in the U.S., they have now bought back their life’s work and everything is back to normal. In the foyer candlelight spreads a welcoming glow over broken-in leather sofas and, if it is slightly damp outside, the fireplace crackles in the corner. In the equally cosy dining room you sit comfortably on floral upholstered chairs and look out over the hotel garden’s greenery. A new chef has command over the pots and the creative dinner menus are worth a trip even for those who do not stay overnight. Here seasonal ingredients take the lead, which could mean a yummy amuse-bouche of lamb sausage and cheddar cheese cream followed by a perfectly seared foie gras with pumpkin cream, and a mini blood sausage with apple and hazelnut foam. Thyme-braised pointed cabbage and blackened leek might accompany main dishes like venison and wild duck, cod and halibut. Among the desserts you’ll find elderberry mousse with smooth Jerusalem artichoke ice cream and citrus notes from lemon curd that are hard to forget. The selected wines are a thoughtful mix of Old and New World, which means that the dessert wines come from a vineyard on Long Island as well as from a chateaux in southern Bordeaux...
