Yesterday I had the most wonderful Sachertorte! Well, at least it was very good. The most wonderful Sacher cake can be found in Vienna or Salzburg at the Hotel Sacher. And there’s also an original Sacher store in Bolzano, Italy.
This is probably the most famous chocolate cake in the world, and it’s recipe was invented by the sixteen-year-old Franz Sacher, who at the moment was only a trainee of the royal kitchen in Vienna! The task was to create a dessert for the special guests of the prince, and the head chef had fallen ill, so the boy had to step in. What a success! This happened almost two hundred years ago, in 1832. And today the Sacher torte is one the symbols of Vienna and the trademark of the Hotel Sacher.
There are still disagreements about the “true” recipe of the cake, the number of apricot jam layers it should contain and whether it should be cut through in the middle or not.
One of my dreams and goals is one day to go to Vienna and have some coffee with The Original Sacher Torte in the Hotel Sacher. Or maybe, I’ll just order it in their online shop!
There are many copies, but only one original. Have any of you been lucky to taste the true Sachertorte?
The dress I’m wearing is one of the dresses my mum gave me for Christmas. It’s from the Danish brand Part Two.
