Danish Meatballs

Frikadeller is the Danish national dish and it is very easy to prepare. Frikadeller are flat, pan-fried meatballs made of beef and pork. A typical Danish Frikadeller dinner includes Danish red cabbage, Danish cucumber salad, sugar brown potatoes and brown gravy.


Mix the beef and pork together in a bowl. Stir in milk, onion, and eggs. Add oatmeal or bread crumbs into the meat mixture. Sprinkle in flour, and knead well to mix. Season the taste with salt and pepper, and mix well. Some people enjoy the taste of allspice, but it is optional to add it. A tip is the frikadelle mixture which gets better the more you mix the ingredients together. Moreover, the mixture should be very moist, but not dripping. If it is too moist, add more flour and use less milk. Let the frikadelle mixture rest for a 1/2 hour to an hour in the refrigerator and then fry it in a pan.

Tirol Dumplings

Culinary history has always been notable for successfully overcoming political boundaries. For instance, the history of the origins of the Tirol dumpling is in no way restricted to today’s Tirol. Although first recorded in a Tirol cookery book in the 16th century, spicy dumplings had been known fully 400 years earlier in areas of what is now Italy. This is demonstrated by a “fresco with dumplings” in the castle chapel in Hocheppan (Castel d’Appiano). What else but a delicious Tirol dumpling could have inspired the artist in question?


Apple Strudel

Strudel, štrudl, štrudla and štrukli – these are the names given by our neighbors in Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic to this sweet dream of light pastry and its juicy filling. But in English, the only word which has made it into common use is the German “Strudel”. That is a powerful signal of just how famous the Viennese Apfelstrudel has now become internationally. But it’s all too easily forgotten that this fine pastry once traveled an extensive route from Arabia via the Ottoman Empire and Turkey, before becoming resident in Vienna. However, the long journey was worth it!
