My Lifestyle

Do you have a sweet tooth? When visiting Vienna, and being one of the Tourists, who are seeking the regional pastry pleasures, you should not miss this one:

A puff pastry cloud and, I love it. To be honest, I don’t eat it regularly, but twice or three times a year … If I am lucky I find a Mini-Version, now and then. The smallest one would be about 6-7cms in length and a diameter of 2cm. This really doesn’t count. It’s one hearty bite.


So, practice spelling: Schaumrolle!
