Description: In Austria, cooking is fun. The famous gaiety of Vienna has always extended to the kitchen – lightheartedly, lavishly and enthusiastically the Austrians prepare their meals, and it is an attitude of mind which you will find irresistible.
In this book you will find inspired ideas for out-of-the-ordinary meals – from the most economical and inexpensive meat dishes to a few wildly extravagant desserts to set before that very special guest.
Here are mouth-watering soups and stews, cakes and pastries, fish and poultry dishes. You will learn how to prepare an authentic Wiener Schnitzel, how to create a sour cream sauce, how to bake a Sacher Torte.
As well as the more famous dishes, there are several surprises too. Austrians have a great flair for improvisation and make exciting meals from the most homely ingredients.
The cooking of Austria is probably the most varied in the world. And it is not surprising, for this little country in the heart of Europe has borrowed all that is best from her bigger neighbors – and transformed it with a magic all her own.
