Salzburger Nockerl has become one of the icons of Salzburg cuisine and may derive from French soufflé dishes. Join a local expert to prepare the most famous dessert of Salzburg and be reminded of the three city hills of Salzburg.

Legend has it that this dessert was invented by Salome Alt, the love of Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau in the early seventeenth century. In any case, the Salzburger Nockerl represent the forbidden love between them, how delicate their relationship was, and the strength of their love. Perhaps this is Maybe that is why they are compared to the three city hills of Salzburg.

Join Michaela in preparing this fluffy egg soufflé made of egg yolk, flour, sugar, and vanilla. The Salzburger Nockerl is always freshly prepared, baked, and immediately served warm with powdered sugar and raspberry sauce. Like any soufflé, the preparation requires a bit of practice. But be assured that with lots of love participants will be able to manage and surprise hungry guests with a dessert that tastes like a soft kiss.

Led by Salzburg tour guide and home chef Michaela Muhr, this interactive lesson will have participants make the Salzburger Nockerl like an expert. Designed to deliver a taste of the famous Salzburg dessert, participants will come away with an understanding of how to prepare the three hills of Salzburg from scratch.

Used to ski in Austria a long time ago and always enjoyed Salzburg and its cuisine thus it was a huge pleasure to watch this sweet dish being made especially the cream sugar bottom. What a treat watching the cook and telling us a bit about Austrian food. Love to take a Strudel class from her.
