Strudel is related to the Ottoman Empire’s pastry baklava, and came to Austria via Turkish to Hungarian and then Hungarian to Austrian cuisine and here it is!
If you diet go to Austria and eat strudel at Viva Mayr, a place that has a magnificent setting and a menu that makes dieting look easy. But just the opposite is true, the dieting part is hell, as the food portions are strictly controlled to miniscule portions. But the food is superb and the kitchen turns out tasty dietetic foods, the likes of this strudel, which I was served as a guest. So dieting after all doesn’t have to be so painful especially with the whipped cream!
