5.0 out of 5 stars Truly authentic, 15 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Classic Austrian Cooking (Cookery Classics) (Hardcover)
The only recipe book in English I have found that reliably reproduces the traditional Austrian food cooked by my grandmother, mother and other relatives from Vienna and Carinthia. Dishes are listed by both their English and their German names. Recipes are nicely written and easy to follow, with tips on ingredients, advice on short-cuts and variants, and the occasional anecdote for good measure. I have to admit that most of these recipes are not for low-fat 'healthy' food and one couldn't eat like this regularly in a sedentary life-style, but as treats they are unsurpassed. My teenage daughter has just demanded her own copy - enough said!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hundreds of authentic recipes in an expert work, 6 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Classic Austrian Cooking (Cookery Classics) (Hardcover)
My mother hailed from Austria and had this book. It is wonderful repository of knowledge of a distinctive cuisine, combining the influences of many of the countries that surround Austria.

Be warned though - many of the recipes are not for those seeking to lose weight!

This is a book from an age where illustrations were not provided. But with everything as text there is space for hundreds of recipes. Compared with modern-day recipe books which may contain a hundred recipes if you're lucky, this is a treasure-trove of information and ideas. If you are looking for a tried and trusted recipe that is a bit different - it will be here.

The recipes are organised into fourteen sections for easy navigation. Many of them carry an explanatory introduction. It is an expert work and will not disappoint. Five stars

This review is from: Classic Austrian Cooking (Cookery Classics) (Hardcover)
Delicious, fantastic book by a great cook. I adore Austrian food anyway and so my husband and I is thrilled to have the book. Mother-in-law is Austrian and a terrific cook but she can't be bothered any more so thank heavens for it.
