VIENNESE POTATO GOULASH – LEFTOVER DISHES WE LOVE!

Viennese potato goulash, in our family, is the typical leftover dish the day after family celebrations. For the party itself we often cook plenty of sausages (when there are a lot of guests, it’s just the easiest dish). The remaining sausages go into the goulash. And, like most hosts, we overestimate the amount of food regularly. So then, tons […]

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 […]
