My Sweet Heaven
Updated: May 13, 2019
Here in Vienna, I’m in sweet heaven. I am eating the worlds most famous cake, the Sacher torte for breakfast in the magnificent Hotel Sacher where it was invented. The original Sacher Torte’s (celebrated since 1832) recipe remains a well-kept secret. A chocolate cake, thinly coated by hand with the finest apricot jam, sublime with whipped cream. It was Eduard Sacher’s (founder of the Hotel Sacher) father Franz Sacher who invented the Sacher Torte, the rest is yummy history. I dine in Austria’s best restaurant “Steirereck”, attend a Mozart Opera, learn Viennese waltz, soak in the coffee culture and raise a toast to beautiful Vienna…with a Mozart coffee of course.
