Crispy breaded meat cutlets are popular the world over (Wikipedia lists 29 geographical variations), with Germany alone featuring over half a dozen variations. But the quintessential Wiener Schnitzel has always been the speciality of Vienna, Austria, and that’s exactly what Thomas Gegenhuber has on the menu tonight.
Vienna Schnitzel on Kartoffel-Vogerlsalat (potato salad with lettuce) and parsley rice.
Available in traditional veal (the only one officially allowed to be called Wiener Schnitzel), light turkey or vegetarian seitan.
For dessert: Heiße Liebe (Hot Love)
a classic Austrian summer dessert of organic vanilla ice cream with a warm vanilla-infused sauce of fresh raspberries.
