Two Not-So-Traditional Recipes From Austria

The team at Hotel and Restaurant Blaue-Gans in the heart of Salzburg are changing the way Austrians eat – but you can also expect some classics there too – no one can have TOOO many Schnitzels when in Austria

Here are two recipes to try at home:

  • Creme brulee of goose liver with mustard carrots
  • Grilled heart pin with potato gnocchi, Tropea onions and Gremolata


The best way to travel around Austria is with a car – you find some family-run hotels and restaurants which do not break the bank and offer delicious hide-aways for self-professed gourmets

I walked away very satisfied, even if my tummy was begging for mercy at the end of my summer Vacation in the Austrian country-side. Loved it!
