Exploring Austrian Food
An alpine country bordering Germany, Austria shares unique culinary ties with their neighbor. The emphasis of Austrian food is frequently hearty fare, such as stewed pork, beef, and potatoes. Sausages and schnitzel are common dishes in both countries. The alpine culture of herding cows and sheep also means there is a unique dairy culture, with Grinzing cheese and milk chocolate being two famous exports. The lush mountain plains and forests are ideal for harvesting wild fruits like lingonberries and collecting wildflower honey.
What Austrian dishes can I make?
In addition to hearty alpine fare, Austria offers an exquisite cafe culture particularly in the capital city of Vienna. To replicate the experience of a refined Austrian tea time at home, try making espresso viennoise, a mix of classic espresso and whipped cream. Serve it alongside tea cakes and scones spread with fruity D’arbo jam. For dinner, make the classic wiener schnitzel, Austria’s national dish of breaded pork pounded flat and deep fried.
