In November, “Europe on a plate” paid a visit to Austria to the delight of children at the European School.
Austrian cuisine is relatively unknown. The country’s geographical location means that its food is largely inspired by its Central European neighbours, which explains why it is sometimes difficult to determine whether certain dishes come from Austria, Germany, Italy or Hungary.
The chef chose a speciality from the capital, the Wiener Schnitzel (Viennese escalope), a meat dish consisting of a breaded escalope (with bread crumbs) served with paprika potatoes and root vegetables. The Wiener Schnitzel first appeared in Austrian gastronomy in the 18th century, although it is strongly inspired by an Italian dish: veal milanese, first mentioned in a work dating from the 12th century.
The chef served a sweet treat for dessert, with an apple strudel for the nursery class and hot chocolate for the primary age children.
