    Culinary souvenirs from Austria

    “I brought you a little something!”: this is certainly music to the ears of those who stayed home. A little something from the place where your gaze took in the spectacular mountains, where your nose was filled with heavenly fragrances and life felt so light. A good souvenir combines three things: it’s not too big, it reminds you of where you spent your holidays, and you would even enjoy receiving it yourself. Here are some of the best edible souvenirs from Austria.

    A taste of cheese from Austria

    Austria’s cheesemakers bring a great deal of experience and patience to their work. Which means you can eat your way through a broad assortment of cheese in Austria, learning about its history and catching a bit of the country’s passion for cheese in the process.

    One of these cheesemakers is the Ganahl family in Vorarlberg’s Montafon region. The milk they produce on their mountain farm is turned into the regional “Sura Kees” (sour cheese), which 30 years ago was still known as the “poor man’s cheese”, right at the farm’s own dairy. Today, it is back and wins cheese lovers over with its tangy flavour. It tastes just as great at the farm as it does at home!

    Nothing as nice as rice

    “Rice from Austria? How unusual! Mmmm, that’s good!”: bring back some Austrian rice for your friends and family and treat them to an aha moment and an extraordinary taste experience.

    The spelt rice from the Schmetterlingshof organic seminar farm, located only 25 kilometres north of the city of Salzburg, is produced sustainably. It is planted and cultivated by hand, resulting in a high degree of biodiversity in the fields.

    Quality control at Schmetterlingshof is seen to by owner Franz Höfer’s two sons – you can depend on it.
