Austria, the home of the Von Trapp Family Singers, apfelstrudel, Mozart and schnitzel, is just one of the stops on the culinary tasting tour that is our Edible Escape event tomorrow (tickets can be purchased in less than 5 minutes here) at the Angel Orensanz Center on the Lower East Side.
Chefs Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban are the Austrian natives behind Edi & the Wolf (it’s a play on their own names), a wine tavern in the East Village. Luckily for us, tomorrow night they’ll be serving up a twist on an old Austrian favorite: Sacher Cake Reinterpreted will be served with Chocolate Mousse and Apricot Gelée. And that’s not the only taste of Austria at Edible Escape. Also on hand will be Monika Caha of Monika Caha Selections– she’s a Viennese expert on Austrian wine. Her portfolio comprises more than 70 wines from 10 boutique producers.
With her help we want one of you to take home a little taste of Austria, meaning mixed case of Austrian wines. Winners will be chosen at random from our ticket holders, so don’t miss out on your chance to win (and eat and drink)–get your Edible Escape tickets right here.
