the buzz





Austria’s culture and traditions are greatly informed by its history as the center of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, as well as its annexation, post World War I, by Germany. Geographical proximity to Germany, Italy and Hungary has been of great influence in the Austrian kitchen. The most famous Austrian dish has to be Wiener schnitzel: a meat cutlet, normally veal, coated with egg and breadcrumbs and pan-fried. Wiener schnitzel is named after Vienna’s Capital city Vienna (Wien) and is commonly served with dumplings and gravy. Tafelspitz (boiled beef) and pork medallions in garlic sauce are two other favorite main courses, while Apfelstrudel and Kaiserschmarrn (shredded pancakes with fruit compote) are among the nation’s favorite desserts. Vienna is often called the ‘Coffee Capital of the World,’ having given birth to the concept of the ‘coffee house,’ as well as popularizing the concept of mixing cream and sugar to the coffee.
