Colman Andrews and Chef Edi Frauneder Talking Schnitzel
Apparently the sign of a properly cooked wiener schnitzel is if a man can sit on it without getting grease on his trousers. Nobody volunteered to test the theory.
One of the most popular appetizers of the evening. Chef Frauneder topped the luscious egg yolk with trout roe and pickled pearl onion.
Austrian Petit Fours
Finger sandwiches of thinly sliced salmon, crème fraiche, and dill fronds.
Another Austrian homage, these potato pancakes were topped with spiced ricotta cheese, and either bacon or trout roe.
Smoked Duck Breast
Thinly sliced duck breast and cucumber on a sesame cracker.
