Wachau

(Austria)

The Wachau is a valley of Austria; it is formed by the Danube river. It is one of the main tourist destinations of the region of Lower Austria, located between the cities of Melk and Krems. The valley is about 30 kilometers long and has been inhabited since prehistoric times. One of its famous tourist sites is the city of Dürnstein, where the English king Richard the Lionheart was taken prisoner by Duke Leopold V of Austria. The Wachau is known for the production of apricots and grapes, used for the production of wines and spirits characteristic. Wachau - including the abbeys of Melk and Göttweig and the historic centre of Krems - was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000 due to its unique architectural and cultural landscape.

Typical dishes
The variety of Austrian cuisine still bears witness to the vastness of the former monarchy. Vienna, in particular, was a melting pot of gastronomic cultures: here the so-called "Zuagrasten" (immigrants) from Hungary, Bohemia, Slovakia, Transcarpathia, Bukovina, Poland, Carniola, Croatia, Trieste, Dalmatia or "simply" from the present Austrian Länder prevailed. Everyone brought their own country's recipes with them to Vienna, and Austrian cuisine absorbed the best of every tradition. Further influences, not only in the gastronomic field, are due to the Jewish culture. From eastern Galicia, for example, the "gefilte Fisch" (stuffed fish) was brought, a model for the popular carp galantine served in Austrian gourmet restaurants. The recipe for the "Beuschel" (coratella) is probably also of Jewish origin. In any case, this is what Austrian chef Ewald Plachutta (awarded three Gault-Millau hats) and gourmet columnist Christoph Wagner, who has long been involved in the history of Austrian cuisine, claim. Also from the East, the influence of Bohemian and Hungarian cuisine can be found in the famous goulash. These are dishes that have been imported from the countries of the former monarchy and that have been assimilated into traditional Viennese cuisine. Beuschel", a popular term for the upper lungs and innards of veal, is a delicious main course, mostly served with round or sliced bread dumplings.
