Small Country, Big History

Austria was once the center of a large empire stretching from France to Russia and from the Baltic Sea to Turkey, imparting a varied heritage to Austria's cuisine. Indeed modern Austria now borders Italy, Hungary and Germany, among others -- and their culinary influences are the strongest. Austria's capital city of Vienna even claims its own cuisine as if it were a separate country -- it's the smallest Austrian state but also the most populous at over 1.5 million, which is one-fifth the population of the entire nation. Join us as we tour the country that gave us apple strudel and wienerschnitzel.
