Rustic cuisine that has been around for centuries, these Austrian dishes are rich in heritage, and have a soul-satisfying taste that evokes great-grandmother’s kitchen. These interpretations of Old World recipes will warm the house, take off any chill, and pair perfectly with a variety of beers.
Austrian taste buds tend to stick to the classics, such as the light lager (Helles), dark lager (Dunkles) and the Märzen, known elsewhere as Oktoberfest beer. Yet diversity is dawning on the Alpine horizon. Rye beers, American Pale Ales and IPAs, Porters, and Stouts are slowly nudging their way into the market.
