Povel Ramel was one of Sweden’s great comedy writers, as well as a composer, pianist and entertainer. On May 31, his children Lotta Ramel and Mikael Ramel unveil a bronze statue representing Povel outside the venue Circus. This will be the final event during a 100-year anniversary, which is also being noticed by Hasselbacken restaurant with a menu composed in Povel’s spirit.

Hasselbacken’s head chef Patrik Almèn has created a tribute menu in Povel’s spirit, where, among other things, “dyddor” (Povel’s own name for his snacks ) is served, preferably together with his favorite drinks Dry Martini or Old Fashioned.

Povel Ramel was very interested in food and drink and sat at chair no. 4 in the Gastronomic Academy, a place that is currently held by cultural journalist Karsten Thurfjell.
The Povel menu at Hasselbacken is inspired by the 1987 gastronomic calendar “Vanliga parsternackan för Gottegrisar”, which was written by Povel and Hasse Alfredson, also a member of the Gastronomic Academy. The calendar contains menu suggestions month by month and humorous food-related material such as Korvsord and the card game The Great Food Fight .
