"A Taste of Vienna" 



This special class at the renowned 'Vaughan's Cookery School
is on offer at half-price, especially for the Devizes Food and Drink Festival.  

As excitement rises leading up to the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, 
we are remembering last year's competition and the wonderful patisserie 
that Vienna is renowned for the whole world over. 
It's the perfect match for good coffee (or a nice cup of tea!), a superb way to end a meal and much easier to make than you think, once you know the tricks.
This session will be an introduction to some of the tasty treats for which this Austrian city is famous.  Ranging from the quick and easy to the  show-stoppingly impressive.


Apfelstrudel
In this class you will make:-
~
Viennese whirls
Melt-in-the-mouth, but put together in a jiffy
~
 Applestrudel
One of the best known Austrian desserts
~
 Sachertorte

A Luxurious Chocolatey ‘Show-Stopper’ 
(said to be invented by chef, Franz Sacher 
and still a classic treat at Sacher Hotel in Vienna)
~
Viennese Whirls
This is a hands-on, busy class that will be good fun, as well as informative.  
After two hours of cooking you will sit down to a light lunch/supper 
whilst your wonderful creations are boxed up ready for you to take home. 

The class is suitable for vegetarians.  
Please let us know if you have special dietary requirements.  

Dates:-
There are two sessions of the same class to choose from 
Thursday 19th May 7.00pm – 9.30pm
Friday 20th May 10.30am – 1.00pm 

Tickets

There are limited numbers of tickets (10 each) for these two courses
 and they are spread between two different outlets (Devizes books and on-line).
