Vienna is still on our minds a week after returning from this European city. Today I’m especially thinking of the fabulously decadent Sacher Torte, a chocolate cake made to a secret recipe at the Sacher Hotel. We patiently stood in line to visit this historic cafe (dating back to 1876) and sample this world-renowned local fare. Together with a rich, dark coffee this was the perfect pick-me-up as dusk closed in.
We have since learned that the Sacher Torte can be ordered and sent worldwide, which could make a wonderfully original gift for a foodie/Europe-lover… or be the failing of our healthy-eating new year’s resolution… Temptation indeed!
