“Expect a real gourmet trip in Salzburg!” Birgit’s happiness about our upcoming trip to Salzburg shines through every line of her last message. I am on a mission again, this time with reisebloggerin.at Gudrun Krinzinger on a perfectly sunny spring day, travelling to the city of Salzburg in order to experience the so-called “eat & meet” festival. Joining us on this trip are lovely gourmet experts Monika & Petar Fuchs of TravelWorldOnline, who have already been with me on many a delightful gourmet trips throughout Austria: In the alpine Bad Aussee district, hosted by the gourmet capital city Graz, in the beautiful Vienna Forest district, exploring the high (culinary) north of Austria in Waldviertel or in Burgenland. Austria just tastes delightful, let me tell you !!!
Each one of those trips has proven to be amazing. All have offered us the unique chance to meet with local producers, discover secret tips and become active during culinary events & cooking classes. Monika would have simply said: “… klasse!” (amazing), beaming all over (yes, I can see you there, Monika!). And so it happened once more, right here in Salzburg.
Brace yourself for my tasty amuse gueule: A culinary walk through Salzburg spiced with lots of local city flavours, topped with a hint of Salzburg joie de vivre. After all, how else would you explain the constant smile of Inez, our charming city guide?
“Let’s move over to Café Classic now. You have to meet the owner! And really do try one of his sensational cakes!”
I like culinary city walks. Inez keeps turning here and there, back into small shops, over to little cafés or right into cute little bakeries where always we “have to try” something. It’s a hard life. Really!
But the journey does not stop there. The “amuse gueule” I have prepared for you continues: As we have just finished crossing the bridge over the Salzach river and are about to enter the Salzburg’s world-famous old town, Inez calls out to us once more: She really has a knack for all those little details and shops! Right inside the medieval entrance gate to the city are both a small cheese boutique and a local, organic bakery. They even sell home-made bread with flowers on top: Check this out!
So how do you feel right now? Full of appetite? Hungry?
Thats’ good! After all, this is exactly what my “amuse gueule” is made for: to trigger your appetite.
Your taste for more adventures will be satisfied over the next course, which is a real story both in taste as well as in preparation. Or would you know how to harvest real caviar … but ssshhh. You must be patient. Just as with good food. And that’s what Salzburg has been able to master.
