Strudel with blueberries

With sweet filling or a spicy and sour version

Either with a sweet filling or a spicy and sour version - you can’t imagine Austrian cuisine without strudel.

The flaky pastry “strudel” has a long history. The thin dough originally comes from Asia: the Arabs brought it to Turkey via Egypt, Palestine and Syria. The Turks brought it to the gates of Vienna during the First Turkish Siege. The Viennese then discovered the completely unknown strudel dough from the prisoners primarily in the form of baklava. For the Turkish arm, the dish was a marching ration critical for survival because it kept for so long. In 1629, the word strudel appeared for the first time handwritten in a cookbook that can be found today in Vienna’s State Library. It varies from the old High German word “stredan”, meaning “in violent movement”. At latest by the 18th century, strudel had assumed a firm place in the Hapsburg empire and was served as a Viennese pastry in Empress Maria Theresa’s court. From Vienna, the strudel conquered the entire Danube monarchy and international cuisine.

“The strudel pastry is carefully made so thin that it is transparent before baking but still does not tear.”
