Hey there, my name is Flipo and as you can see, I am half austrian half italian!
I am influenced very much from my parents cooking. They used to travel to italy and bring back the most amazing ingredients for basic italian cuisine.. What I love about the italian kitchen is the "down-to-earthness" of the recipees.. You only need excellent products and the right combination of flavours.. and voila!
Austrian cuisine is very much influenced by the Italian kitchen. I lived in Vienna most of my life and so I always loved austrian desserts.. They are the best ones too! In this menu, you get the favourite dessert of the Austrian emperor Franz, famous husband of our very renowned "Sissi"!
I start with a cold red beet soup that comes with an incredible color and will be topped with a yoghurt/ horse raddish/ walnut mix. Fantastic mix of suprising and relatively intese flavours combined with a creamy and light red beet soup.
As a main i will prepare (bio) pork medaillons with a sage leaf and self made green pesto wrapped in proscuitto ham served in a creamy sauce. A unique combination of light meat with smoky ham and intense basil filling.
Alongside I will serve little lemon-potato cubes and a honeymelon- tomatoe- mixed leaves salad. Wonderful combination of several different textures and flavours.
As a dessert, "Kaiserschmarrn"- will be served: A classic austrian dessert- fluffy, light and inimitable.
