  • A pair of pants
  • A shirt or t-shirt
  • A pair of shoes
  • Optionally, a plane ticket to Vienna
  • A bit of money, but not that much
  • A map of Vienna

Stop working for a bit, put some pants on, and get out of your house. Once in the street, depending on where you are, you may have to go to the airport and fly to Vienna, or if like me you already are in Vienna, walk five minutes to Gasthaus Rebhuhn.

Once there, take a seat, order a drink, then a Schnitzel, either the Veal or the Pork one. I personally prefer the pork one that is tastier, cheaper, and comes with those amazing parsley potatoes. The veal one comes with a potato salad that contains way too much sauce.

Wait a little bit for your Schnitzel to be cooked, then eat it when it is served. Trust me, that’s the best way, cooking it at home is quite messy.🙂

Enjoy!

PS: In case you wonder why I didn’t take the photo myself: I wanted to go there today at lunch, but someone preferred a pizza…

Caesar Salad

  • Some Romana salad
  • Two table spoons of mayo
  • One garlic clove, crushed
  • One tea spoon of anchovy paste
  • One tea spoon of lemon juice
  • One table spoon of Worcester sauce
  • A bit of milk
  • A chunk of Parmigiano

Mix all the ingredients together by hand with a tea spoon excepted milk and cheese.

Dilute with a bit of milk, then add the cheese, grated, and keep mixing with the spoon. If the sauce is too thick, use a little more milk. The sauce should remain tick, though, it’s not supposed to be liquid.

Add salt and pepper to your taste, toss the salad and sauce in a bowl, let it rest half an hour so that the salad becomes tender.

Depending on your taste you can add grilled chicken breast, or croutons, or a few grilled prawns, or some extra cheese, all the above, or none, it’s your salad, you get to decide…

Enjoy!
