Our Austrian Meal

Country #10 in our Global Table Adventure – Austria

Some very familiar dishes for us this week. We started with some Viennese Hot Chocolate (with Brandy), then made Sauteed Green Beans with Speck (speck is dry-aged prosciutto), Pork Wiener Schnitzel, Baked Austrian Kas Nocken (spaetzle) with caramelized onion and Gruyere cheese, and Sacher-torte (chocolate cake with apricot jam). We’ve had these foods before, but it was fun making our own homemade spaetzle and Wiener Schnitzel! The cake…well, something went wrong there and we had to get a steak knife to cut it! Neither of us needed the dessert anyway.
