Chalet classics to cook at home

Three classic recipes from the rustic ski chalets in the Salzburger Saalachtal... bring that holiday feeling back home with you through food.

  • 100 g onions finely diced
  • 150 ml soup
  • 200 g Pinzgau beer cheese finely diced
  • 30 g browned butter
  • 100 g onions Chives finely chopped


How to prepare:

1. Mix the flour together with the eggs, milk, water and a pinch of salt with a wooden spoon to form a rough dumpling dough and leave this to sit for a while. Press the dough through a dumpling grater into boiling salted water. If you don’t have a dumpling grater at home, you can also use a sieve or colander with large holes. 2. Boil the dumplings for about three minutes. When they rise to the surface of the water, strain the dumplings and rinse with cold water. 3. Heat butter in a cast iron skillet and sweat the diced onions in the butter. Add the cooled dumplings and deglaze the pan with soup. 4. Sprinkle the finely diced pieces of Pinzgau beer cheese over the skillet and lightly brown everything until the cheese is melted. 5. In a second pan, brown the finely chopped onion rings in browned butter. Add these to the Kasnockn before serving and sprinkle generously with fresh chives.



An imperial dessert after a day on the slopes! Fluffy, sweet and simply gorgeous in combination with fruity sour stewed plums – this popular pastry dish brings a smile to every winter sport enthusiast.

  • 240 g cake flour
  • ½ l milk
  • 60 g raisins
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla sugar
