CHANTERELLE SAUCE WITH GREEN GARDEN HERBS PASTA

Chanterelle season has started in Austria! I simply love chanterelles and especially this chanterelle sauce. They do not only taste wonderful, they are also fun to pick. (Go to recipe directly) My personal favorite chanterelle sauce recipe tastes a bit “lighter” than the usual chanterelle sauce you will get at Austrian restaurants. I added Zucchini and […]

HOMEMADE GREEN PASTA – WITH GRANNY’S GARDEN HERBS

This homemade green pasta is made with parsley and chives. It tastes wonderfully fresh and “green” and fits perfectly with a sauce of chanterelles, which are now in season (at least in Austria). The herbs are from my granny’s garden in Burgenland, so you can’t compare the taste to bought ones… 😉 (Go to recipe […]

THE PERFECT CRISPY ROAST QUEST – CARAWAY PORK ROAST

Roasted pork with caraway seeds is a classic one at the Austrian Heuriger – but not only in Austrian wine taverns, it’s a classic recipe all over Austria and Germany.

ON PEELING POTATOES (+ ROASTED POTATOES AND BEETROOT RECIPE)

In my posting about parsley potatoes, I’ve already complained about peeling potatoes. Potatoes are so important in the Austrian kitchen, nevertheless I myself often prefer pasta or rice as a side dish, because you simply do not need to peel them. Therefore, the following recipe is one, where NOTHING has to be peeled: roasted potatoes with beetroot and celery. On peeling […]

BREADCRUMBS EVERYWHERE! (HOW TO DIY)

Austrian cuisine needs breadcrumbs for almost every meal. To make them at home has many advantages, but also disadvantages.   Benefits of homemade breadcrumbs: A good conscience (no waste of old rolls anymore!) For the health conscious ones: wholemeal breadcrumbs! (at least worth a try) Disadvantages: Crumbs everywhere! While the old rolls dry, they are lying […]

GRANNY RECIPE: WILD BOARRRR

Here comes an original Granny recipe. The problem with most of them is that my grandmother‘s cooking instructions are somewhat inaccurate and mostly the preparations just go by feeling (or whatever ingredients are available). For this recipe I have tried to coax out of her the ingredients as accurately as possible. It has come out: […]
