Love and relationships
After about 10 minutes crunching twigs and dodging branches, we caught sight of the lake peeking through the trees. Another sign in loopy script pointed the way to the cabins, sauna, outdoor showers and restaurant. Cabin No. There were candles, basic side tables, two organic cotton towels and little else in the snug space. But what more does one need? After dropping our backpacks and applying bug spray it was not my first visit , we strolled to the blackened-timber boathouse by the lake where the other guests had begun to gather.
Bottles of sparkling cider were uncorked on a bench — a self-service cocktail hour — accompanied by bites from the garden: curls of parsnip, crisp cucumber and crumbles of salty cheese from a small dairy in the nearby town of Falkenberg. While others took fishing rods out in a canoe and fired up the floating sauna, my husband and I pushed out a rowboat for a lazy loop on the lake.
Soon it was time for dinner. As daylight began to fade, dinner was served in the forest restaurant, a large glass-walled tent that seated odd guests around three long communal tables. The six-course meal was determined by what grows on the property, which operates on the farming philosophy known as permaculture. Those things include berries, apples, mushrooms and wild herbs such as horsetail and sorrel. As guests began to congregate in a clearing beneath old sails strung from the treetops, Mr. Hansen poured aperitifs and introduced himself to the crowd, which that evening was all couples, a mix of younger and middle-aged pairs, almost all from Denmark.
A few cooks scampered among the open-air kitchen, fire pits and a crackling grill suspended from a tree. And when the final stragglers had glasses in hand, our host launched into an impassioned welcome speech-cum-manifesto. At a time when every new restaurant is expected to have a concept, Stedsans instead has a cause. Hansen, an attempt to change the world by example in some small way. The meal we would eat that night would produce no waste.
Leftover food would be fed to the chickens, and since no chemicals are used, the water for washing would be reused in the gardens. The implicit goal is to prove the Stedsans hypothesis: that all-natural food grown nearby is not only nourishing, it also tastes better. Hansen of the low-interference preparations.
Consider it laissez-faire cooking. Once we found seats on sheepskin-draped benches, the dinner that followed was a communal feast orchestrated to draw guests together.

Large platters were passed back and forth family-style, plates of grilled spring onions and fried nettles, soft-boiled eggs from the chicken coop, pike perch baked in embers, tender greens and new potatoes pulled from the garden just hours earlier. Pairings of natural, biodynamic wines from Europe accompanied the increasingly convivial meal.
Hansen bellowed, bearing a platter piled with foraged herbs. The final two courses — cheese from the nearby dairy and a dessert of rhubarb, cream and elderflower blossoms — were served outside around a campfire ringed with rough-hewed benches and wood-stump stools. Many of the Danes had become fast friends, laughing together in the twilight, balancing dessert plates on their knees and eagerly raising their glasses for refills of sweet orange wine. Soon Mr. Hansen slipped away, the staff retreated to a far corner of the forest, and my husband and I stumbled through the darkness aided only by an iPhone flashlight to find the way back to our cabin.
The following morning, the forest was serene with only the sound of twittering birds and rustling leaves. Inside, a buffet was arranged on a long wooden table: loaves of Danish rye studded with raisins and apricots, an array of cheeses and yogurt, homemade granola and a warm pot of sprouted porridge. Over a small campfire outside, a worker fried eggs on cast-iron skillets, a slow task as flames lagged in the morning breeze.
But I did find one shot that I eventually shared on Instagram. How could I not? The following week, friends kept mentioning that picture, asking about that gorgeous place with the floating sauna in the lake.
