The Wiener Schnitzel is the national dish of Austria and is also a popular German dish. It's a very thin pork cutlet that is breaded and deep fried and garnished with a wedge of lemon. It is traditionally served with kopfsalat (lettuce, onions and sweet vinegar dressing) potato salad, cucumber salad or spaetzle (noodles). Today it is also served with pomme frits (french fries). The word 'wiener' means 'from Vienna' and 'schnitz' means to slice or cut. So here we have a cutlet of pork from Vienna.

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” Dr. Samuel Johnson 1777. These words are just as true today as they were back then. Sitting on the banks of the River Thames, England’s capital has been drenched with history since Roman times and once ruled a quarter of the world. Home to the Royal family, this vibrant city still thrives on tradition but is also a leading global city, being one of the world’s capitols in fashion, arts, entertainment and finance.

Irish Soda Bread

Traditional Irish Soda Bread started in the early 1800's and was cooked in a bastible which is a cast-iron pot that was placed onto a turf fire or hot coals. Many did not have ovens back then so this was a very common way to bake the basic table bread of those days. It consisted of flour, bread soda, buttermilk and salt. Adding fruit, a bit of sugar and one egg to the bread mixture would have been for a very special occasion or a treat during the harvest time.
