Sweet as love and tender as a kiss… The story of a classic and the original recipe for at home

“Sweet as love and tender as a kiss” – that’s how Salzburger Nockerl taste. At least that’s what it says in the operetta “Saison in Salzburg” by Fred Raymond. But before we get to the recipe, a quick bit of trivia around the topic: Salzburger Nockerl are, technically speaking, a soufflΓ© and are accordingly temperature-sensitive. The traditional three “Gupfe” (hills) symbolize MΓΆnchsberg, Kapuzinerberg and Gaisberg, the three local mountains of the city of Salzburg. And they were invented in the 17th century, allegedly even by Salome Alt. Salome Alt was the long-time mistress of Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau, who had today’s Mirabell Palace built for her. But back to the Salzburger Nockerl: here is our recipe and we wish you much fun & good success! And if doing it yourself is too tedious – just come to the Steinerwirt in Zell am See!
