    Much has happened in Sweden’s restaurant world since Pelle opened in the early 1990s. But while restaurant trends come and go, Pelle stands firmly in the kitchen and continues to lovingly transform high-quality local produce into tasty and stylishly plated Swedish comfort food. Whether you choose the dining room or the simpler bar, you’ll always find the place full. Even on a regular Wednesday there are diners of all ages – a young couple, a group of seniors, and a few celebratory groups of families or friends. The sparsely decorated dining room is pleasant and homey with its walls adorned with art for sale, hefty wooden tables, and candlelight. In recent years, Pelle has simplified his menu. There are few dishes to choose from and we recommend Pelle’s incredibly affordable four-course menu. We receive an excellent Swedish squid and oyster mushrooms paired with an equally excellent wine: a Faubel chardonnay. The chartreuse-coloured and wonderfully invigorating Tuscan kale soup with apple and anise caresses the taste buds. Hearty and tender veal cheek with oyster mushrooms has a hint of lovage that contrasts nicely against the sweetness of a carrot purée. It’s paired with a full-bodied and delightful Ripasso. The apple finale comes with the finest almond cream, enhanced by a sweet Monbazillac. “Like stuffing your nose in a jar of raisins”, says one guest about the French dessert wine. We are satisfied after a long evening and hope for continued artful cooking here for another quarter century.

THE GLOBAL GASTRONOMY AWARDS 2018

With Enrique Olvera as its 2017 laureate, the Global Gastronomy Awards were presented at his Mexico City restaurant Pujol on September 23rd, 2018. For ten consecutive years the awards ceremony was hosted in Stockholm, last year, however, it became a movable feast and relay race, traveling to the home turf of the previous year’s winner. The first global stop was New York where 2016 awardee Dan Barber handed over the baton to Enrique Olvera. Chef Olvera in turn passed it on to David Thompson, making Bangkok the next destination.
