Zillertaler Graukäse: sauer mit Essig, Öl und Zwiebelringen – Traditional Graukäse Gray Cheese

Sennerei Zillertal Sennereiküche. A-6290 Mayrhofen · Hollenzen 116

Late spring/early summer is an interesting time to visit Tyrol. It’s the period when herds of cows can be seen from miles away, grazing the open pastures and fields. These majestic creatures are a constant reminder of the longtime farmer tradition in the region. What happens to the milk produced from these animals? Well, most likely it is sent to the nearby dairy farm, the Sennerei Zillertal. Nestled deep in the Zillertal Ziller Valley in Mayrhofen, the dairy offers tours to the public that gives a fascinating look into the process of modern milk, cheese and butter production. The first station in the tour takes a closer look at the one-of-a-kind Graukäse grey cheese. Not only can you see and smell how this local specialty is produced and stored to maturity, you can also enjoy it afterwards at the adjacent Dairy Kitchen! Continue reading

For the majority of Americans living in Europe, there are a number of things that we sorely miss from our home country.

But there’s one thing that trumps all others – Mexican cuisine! It seems that this particular fare has failed to catch on with European taste buds. Mexico Arriba in Innsbruck tries to bring a taste of Mexico to Tyrol. Continue reading

Fitneßsalat Salatplatte mit Hühnerfiletstreifen – Fitness Salad Plate with Chicken Strips

Klostergasthof. A-6134 Fiecht · Fiecht 5

Austrian cuisine has a notorious reputation for being on the heavy side – Schnitzel, Spätzle, Kaiserschmarren, Tafelspitz, Schweinebraten roasted pork, etc… So it is easy for uninformed people to have this image branded in their mind and conclude that Austrian cuisine is full of fatty and filling dishes. On the contrary! In fact, there are a burgeoning number of health conscious Austrians that eat smart and healthy. Supermarkets promote a large array of organic fruits and vegetables that make eating right accessible. Restaurants also follow suit – salads are always included on the menu. One notable dish often found on Austrian menus is the so-called ‘Fitness Salad,’ a salad plate featuring a variety of greens topped with grilled chicken strips. Continue reading

Gauder Wurst

Gauder Fest · Zell am Ziller · 2 May – 5 May 2013

Time for Lederhosen and Dirndls! Every year, on the first weekend of May, a special event takes place in the heart of the Zillertal Valley – the traditional Gauder Fest in Zell am Ziller. For four eventful and lively days, local Tyroleans and foreign visitors alike come to this one-of-a-kind extravaganza to revel in the fun. The highlight of Austria’s largest spring festival is the parade showcasing colorful customary costumes, band music played by local groups, and historical horse-drawn carriages. This Trachtenumzug parade, which caps the event on Sunday, also happens to be the largest of its kind in Austria. The younger generation, though, might consider the festival beer, Gauder Bock, to be the highlight. Continue reading

Pan Fried Bread Dumplings with Green Salad – Geröstete Knödel mit grünem Salat

Restaurant Silberberg. A-6130 Schwaz · Alte Landstraße 1

Knödel dumplings are an essential part of Central European cuisine. Primarily prepared using bread but sometimes made of potatoes, these large, round boiled balls are commonly served as side items for meat dishes such as Schweinebraten roasted pork or stews – dishes accompanied by a thick and heavy sauce. But Knödel can also be the main star of a dish, as done here. In the Geröstete Knödel dish, Knödel bread dumplings are sliced and pan-fried and served with scrambled eggs. Continue reading
