Pasties with Sheep Cheese

Boil the potatoes in their skins, peel them. Allow them to cool and prepare the filling. Take 150g of potatoes for the filling. Grate them on a fine grater, add 50g of butter, mix with a pinch of salt. Then add 250g of sheep cheese, chopped spring onions or chives and 1 teaspoon of sour cream. You can also add a little chopped bacon. Mix it and the filling is ready.

For the dough, weigh the required amount of flour and in a bowl. Grate the potatoes on a fine grater. Sprinkle with salt, add the egg, flour and knead the dough. Let it rest a while. Divide the dough into three parts in order to work better. Roll the dough out to about 2 mm thick. With a glass, cut circles out of the dough. Put the filling on each circle, fold the sides of the dough and push them firmly together with a fork. Cook in boiling salted water with the addition of 1 teaspoon of oil. From the boiling point, cook for about 6 minutes. Strain the cooked pirohy, put on a plate, pour the oil from the fried bacon, in which you melt 50g of butter over them. Pour sour cream, and put the chopped spring onions and fried bacon on top of the pirohy.You may also add dill. Milk or buttermilk goes well as a drink with the dish.

Styrian Fried Chicken Salad

The reason why Styrian fried chicken in particular is so famous has a lot to do with the “Sulmtal Geflügel” (“Sulmtal poultry”), which is now undergoing something of a revival. Since the 17th century, this name has been given to the particularly fleshy capons and poulards which proved highly popular amongst the nobility of Europe. During the Habsburg Monarchy, this delicious poultry was even supplied to markets on the far side of the Alps, as far away as Trieste and Marburg.

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?
