Product Description


"Meehan, great-niece of Tante Hertha, and von Baich, Meehan's mother, share family recipes passed down from their Viennese aunt in this attractive and appetizing book. Tante Hertha is Baroness Hertha Freiin von Winkler, a woman clearly ahead of her time, who served as a Red Cross nurse during WWI, started her own photography studio, and after WWII established her own catering company. Her passion for food and cooking is evident in the array of recipes offered up in this collection. From the simple but mouth-watering fish croquettes and crescents with ham filling to rolled beefsteak and szegediner goulash, Tante Hertha knew how to create meals that appealed to the heart as well as the palate. Chock-full of striking photographs of local architecture as well as the dishes included in the book, there is much that will appeal. An absolutely gorgeous pork roast with root vegetables practically jumps off the page as does the exquisite gentleman's torte with cheese, salami, pumpernickel, and black forest ham. Tante Hertha's repertoire includes soups, meat and fish, sides and salads, and a wide range of desserts from cookies and cakes to puddings and jams. Those unfamiliar with Viennese dishes will be tempted by the luscious photographs and enticing food and those who already enjoy the cuisine will welcome Tante Hertha's expert guidance on making these classic dishes." --Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

AN ENGAGING INTRODUCTION TO A CULTURAL GIANT. Long before it became an Italian offshore island, Sicily was the land in the center of the Mediterranean where the great civilizations of Europe and Northern Africa met. Sicily today is familiar and unfamiliar, modernized and unchanging. Visitors will find in an out-of-the-way town an Aragonese castle, will stumble across a Norman church by the side of a lesser travelled road, will see red Muslim-styles domes over a Christian shrine, will find a Baroque church of breathtaking beauty in a village, will catch a glimpse from the motorway of a solitary Greek temple on the horizon and will happen on a the celebrations of the patron saint of a run-down district of a city, and will stop and wonder. There is more to Sicily than the Godfather and the mafia. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

HASH(0x9f3bf3e4) out of 5 stars Glorious cookbook! Sept. 27 2014
By T. Powell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
First, I bought this as a used book from, a was quite happy with the transaction from the independent seller. The book is amazing, on so many different levels. First, there are the traditional recipes that my Mom's aunts used to make ages ago, when I was a small child. Entrees, sauces, soups, side dishes, and desserts! Oh, the desserts! You know how some tastes linger in your brain like a favorite holiday cookie? Well this cookbook has those old recipes. With careful instructions on what to do to avoid any 'recipe failure.' Second, the photos of the food will make you want to get the pots & pans out. Then there are so many photos of Vienna's historic buildings, its restaurants and some old photos of people that you almost feel like you have been there, and these are from your scrap book. This is a cookbook that you will enjoy using to make the recipes, and also to simply read through for an imaginary journey to Vienna.

HASH(0x9f3bf7ec) out of 5 stars Beautiful photos, but nothing new in the recipes Dec 3 2011
By Cookbook Gal - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A lovely, well photographed book, but there is really nothing new in the recipe department. If you have a lot of German and/or Austrian cookbooks, this may not be the one for you. If you are new to cooking from that region of the world, this book would be a nice addition to the bookshelf.

HASH(0x9f3bf5f4) out of 5 stars Gorgeous, tantalizing cookbook! Nov. 16 2011
By Julie Mazur Tribe - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What a beautiful book this is! The photos are gorgeous, and it's full of interesting anecdotes about Viennese culture and history. My only problem is that I've been so caught up in reading the stories and admiring the images that I haven't actually cooked anything from it yet. This would make a fabulous holiday gift for anyone interested in Viennese food or culture.

Now, this is what I was looking for in an Austrian/Viennese cookbook. The recipes are well-written and look like they'll be delicious.
HASH(0x9f3bfc18) out of 5 stars The recipes are original and wonderfully easy to follow Dec 17 2015

The recipes are original and wonderfully easy to follow.......the best book to friends if the "giver" is Viennese. Ne careful with the paper-back version, if you make a copy the backing rakes and you have lose pages. It happened to me. Eierlikoer on page 206 enjoy at Christmas time.
