THIS BEING MOSTLY AN INDOOR EVENT AND GIVEN SITUATION IN VIENNA, PLEASE CONFIRM:
- YOU ARE VACCINATED (OR CURED FROM COVID)
- HAVE A NOT OLDER THAN 48H NEGATIVE PCR (free with gargle BIPA/BILLA)
Protected content
- YOUR COMMITMENT TO WEAR A FFP2 MASK INDOORS.
WE SHALL EAT AND DRINK ON THE TERRACE, SO APPROPRIATE CLOTHINGS:-))
WE are all looking for ways to have as normal a life as possible, and these precautions are, in my mind, what is needed.
If you find it is too demanding, kindly cancel:-)

Now the good news:
You will be able to make these at home without any difficulty even if you have never baked!!

The easy ones : apple "croissants", sweet and savory, with supermarket puff pastry (improved by a few tricks!!!).
And an Apfelstrudel with ready made phillo dough, no butter but olive oil. I just made one, in a jiffy!, for a coffee with a friend this morning- pic above!

You will savour these pastries with some mate cocido; also tea or coffee for the traditionalists!

And we shall do the first steps of the very demanding but a lot of fun- from scratch- medialunas; we shall do the second and final step in next event. I shall do some preparatory work, as the chefs do in TV programs, so we have the yeast dough in several stages of "proofing".

PS Thanks very much for your suggestions for cookies! We shall indeed make an amazing cookie, very British, and not readily available in Vienna, to the best of my explorations...
