Pädaste Mushroom Weekend

Mushroom picking nature-walk

Saturday, 25 September 2021



Mushroom picking nature-walk under guidance of Pädaste’s horticulturist, who takes care of the daily foraging at Alexander Restaurant. Mycologist Veiko Kastanje will join us during the nature walk.


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. At the moment, he is employed as a researcher at Estonian Crop Research Institute, 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 Diogo Caetano has created a fabulous 3-course dinner in which foraged mushrooms will play a significant role.
