When the big hunger comes, do I offer my little guests Wiener schnitzel to eat and when? This question occupies many newlyweds. Should the little gourmets be well catered for. The question is easy to answer 😉 Usually (in Austria), a gala menu for kids is called Wienerschnitzel with potatoes or even better with fries and extra ketchup. For dessert a scoop of ice cream, and who doesn´t like schnitzel is happy with pasta and sauce or butter. Is it really that simple? YES.
It gets a little trickier when asked, when and where do we put the kids? Our clear recommendation: before the menu for the adults starts. For example, we make it quite straightforward and playfully animate the kids to set the tables. Quickly clean the arts and crafts-tables, tablecloth and cutlery on it and off you go. In the beverage selection there’s apple and orange juice, many dwarves just want still water.
Every children’s table is a highlight and one or the other dad is there mouth-watered aiming for the schnitzel. “But they are not yours – you’ll be spoiled with culinary masterpieces later anyway.” For during the day-treats: offer the kids some fruit for the energy. Strawberries, apples, grapes and bananas often make the race against the candybar ;-). Actually, the only question now is what makes the perfect Wienerschnitzel. For this question we asked Kurt Berger at Schloss Aigen and immediately got the answer to his kitchen secrets:
“The best schnitzel for our little guests comes from calf raised in Salzburg – it has to be tender.
It’s served nice and crunchy, golden brown together with potato rösti as an alternative to fries.” says Kurt Berger.
