Learn Austrian Cooking with the gourmet chef in Salzburg

As you know, we like Austrian cuisine very much. For a few years now we have been drawn to it again and again Salzburg country looking for new delights from the cooking pots of the Alpine region. During one of these visits, we were on our Advent trip to Salzburg last year, among other things Restaurant Brunnauer in Salzburg came across, whose kitchen impressed us even then. We learned that Richard Brunnauer, tenant and head chef of the restaurant of the same name and proud owner of two Gault Millau toques, also offers cooking courses for interested gourmets. Reason enough for us to take a look behind the scenes of this gourmet restaurant in Salzburg. Austrian Learning to cook is fun with Richard Brunnauer.

So we use our visit to Salzburg on the occasion of the eat and meet festivalsto which we have been invited by Salzburg Tourism to attend one of its cooking classes. Together with Elena Paschinger from Creative Lena and Gudrun Krinzinger of Reisebloggerin.atthat we have been to several times Trips to Savor were on the way, we set out to try our hand at the culinary art of a gourmet chef under the guidance of Richard Brunnauer. However, he makes it easy for us, because the dishes that we prepare together with him and his sous-chef can easily be cooked at home: there are meat donuts on sauerkraut, beef roulade with herb dumplings and - how can it be different in Austria - Kaiserschmarrn Recipe with apple compote.

Everyone should be able to cook. Learning Austrian cooking helps.

When Petar, who also has to learn to cook in Austria, asks if we can publish the recipes, Richard Brunnauer says succinctly: “Yes, yes. It's no secret, and everyone should be able to cook. ”I won't list all of the recipes here, though. After all, this is a travel blog, but I'm happy to pass on a few tips. The meat donuts are made from a kind of choux pastry and filled with a meat filling. “You can also use cheese or vegetables instead,” suggests Richard Brunnauer.

The beef roulade, which I often make myself at home, albeit in a different way, is prepared in an appealing way - suitable for gourmet cuisine. We fill them with carrot slices, pickles, mustard and bacon slices. After they have simmered in the pot for an hour and a half, our host will cut them open and serve them together with the homemade herb dumplings. A meal to our taste!

I find it interesting that Richard Brunnauer stirs the Kaiserschmarrn with whipped cream and lemon juice and lets it bake in the oven. Then he cuts the dough and swirls the pieces in granulated sugar that he has caramelized: delicious!
