Christmas Recipes from Austria

Austrian Christmas Recipes 

 In Austria the Christmas season begins with the start of Advent and this is when most households will be filled with the scents and aromas associated with Christmas – such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, honey, nuts and fruits – as baking Christmas cakes and biscuits gets underway. Christmas itself begins on Christmas Eve, or Heilige Abend, when the streets are deserted and families gather for their special Christmas meal which in the past consisted of mainly fish, such as a Carp, but today will often feature a roast goose with all the tasty, aromatic trimmings that make it so special. Below are a few of the recipes which have been sent in to us and if you would like to add any of your own please send them into us and we will include them.
