Evening with culture, music, stories and dining

Various visiting chefs create delicious dinners, tell about the food and organise small exhibitions and more.

Learn about the ingredients, recipe, cultural history and person behind the meal.

The idea is to let the guests experience good, West Jutland ingredients, such as lamb, fish, chicken, and vegetables.

At the same time, the guestscan have a total experience and understanding of nature, culture, traditions, and people.

Musicand stories evening

During the Music and stories evening we share good music.. The Music and stories evening, and the Culture and dining evening are two sides of the same coin.

Good taste will never go out of style.

Previous Culture and Dining Evenings as well as Music and Storytelling Evenings

Over time, many wonderful Culture - Eating - Music and Storytelling evenings have been held at Lystbækgaard - and we will of course continue with that!

Here are some examples of what our guests have experienced:

"Wild with Jeppe Aakjær" where Ruth Dein told about Jeppe Aakjær's life and living, joys and sorrows.

Mexican Pedro Torres, who hails from southern Mexico, has visited us. He told vividly about his life where his family has lived for generations and where from childhood he has learned to cook in a more primitive way than he does now.

The Irish folk singer, lecturer and storyteller, Francis X. Foley has also been by. Francis X. Foley told in a very entertaining way about his life and we listened to his lovely guitar playing and singing. Francis was born in Dublin. But by winding detours he ended up in Thyborøn.

With Sheep to the Edge, we have been out to meet the sheep, see a show of shepherding, and hear an account of life with sheep. We heard stories about the living landscape, and could ask questions.

There has been a horse-drawn carriage ride across the heath to Lars ’Grave, with a full load on the horse-drawn carriage.

We have heard exciting and captivating Kronhede stories by Kaj Madsen. Thorkild Munk, Kasper Rosbøl and Margit Larsen.

Scottish evening, with Shepherd's pie, music, song, dance and traditional Scottish "fiddle" with David Thomas.

The trip has gone to "Olehøjene", with the common song "Hyldest til Heden". Again we saw the sheep up close and saw the shepherds and shepherd dogs at work, and heard nice whistling with Eva Hermann and Marie.

Geeke Jonker has told about herding sheep that it is a lifestyle that is absolutely wonderful. Geeke has made a sheepdog show, and e.g. demonstrated how the shepherd's staff is used to grab a sheep. We became much wiser on the shepherd and on the sheep.

We have had ants at Lystbækgaard - but not in the food - when the ant-diligent Japanese artist Rie Takeuchi Rolighed invited us to dinner in August. You can also see that Rie has left her mark on the café at Lystbækgaard with the many ants. Ants both as large paintings, wall paintings and painted ants in the windows.

The food and the table setting
The table setting is provided by the Lystbæk association's volunteer and skilled helpers - they do a fantastic job. Often helped well by the performing artists, musicians, narrators, chefs.

The food is always exciting, made from West Jutland ingredients, and many different people have been responsible for it.

For example. Grete Nisgaard and Leif Birch, Pedro Torres, We have had Crab and fishing evening where Margrethe Moore from Restaurant Sommerfisk in Fjand served freshly caught Bag Crab. Japanese food made by Rie Takeuchi Rolighed and Karen Margrethe. Get to the Edge, where Anna conjured up the most delicious food. We have been served "Shepherd's Bags" on the large campfire site.

Some of the food, starters - main courses - desserts - we enjoyed are:

Salads, potato boats and barbecue marinated long-fried sheep, lamb and goat. Standard mutton spiced sausage, a special mutton sausage with rosemary that was pressed and air-dried for four months, and mutton spiced sausage with thyme and cranberries. Homemade ice cream, with blueberries and sea buckthorn. Lamb chops, barbecue ribs, fresh butter steamed potatoes, grandma salad. Farm ice cream waffle and coffee. Delicious organic beef from Kronheden - and much much much more.

Between the meals and the stories, the guests of course get to talk a lot, even with those we do not know in advance. Often we also sing a few songs. Our guests always enjoy it very, very much, and the evenings are always atmospheric and cozy.

Visit by Lars Gylden Trio

On a dark and wet evening, in late February 2020, The Lars Gylden Trio  visitid Lystbækgaard.
But the darkness and the rain were quickly forgotten and we got lost in the good music.
Music delivered with joy, presence and heart.
As Lars Gylden said; all people have a story, and we who watched the concert were allowed to take part in some of Lars' story.
His music lyrics are about life, often his own life, for better or worse. The humor was certainly present as well, not least between the three musicians.
In addition to Lars Gylden with vocals and guitar, we also met Mikael Svankjær on guitar and Claes Fischer on bass.
Before the musicians went on stage, we got our stomachs nicely filled with delicious tasty soup with sheep and cabbage, and during the break there was coffee and homemade cake.
It was a cozy and successful evening.
On our Facebook page you can see photos from the evening, including videos from the cozy evening.
