Neue Cuisine: The Elegant Tastes of Vienna

Neue Cuisine: The Elegant Tastes of Vienna

“Everyone should know what a wonderful piece of apple strudel tastes like, or a crunchy light Wiener Schnitzel. To have created a home for this kind of food—and wine and culture—at Wallsé, Café Sabarsky, and Blaue Gans just makes me happy."
Kurt Gutenbrunner

Sharing signature recipes from his beloved trio of New York City restaurants—Wallsé, Café Sabarsky, and Blaue Gans—acclaimed chef Kurt Gutenbrunner offers his modern take on his culinary heritage in Neue Cuisine: The Elegant Tastes of Vienna. One of the first cookbooks to feature not only Austrian cooking but also its sophisticated legacy of art and design, this book showcases the history and allure of the Viennese café and restaurant traditions that Gutenbrunner has brought to his own establishments.

Neue Cuisine’s more than 100 delectable (and accessible) recipes include traditional Viennese specialties, as well as modern dishes highlighting the use of fresh-from-the-market ingredients. These are supplemented by an illuminating essay and a number of shorter informative texts about Wiener Werkstätte tableware and cooking techniques written by Janis Staggs, Associate Curator at the Neue Galerie.

Beautifully photographed with period tabletop accessories and art from the Neue Galerie, this cookbook is destined to become a classic; it captures the singular elegance of a dynamic period and culture.
