The Sacher Torte is possibly Austria’s most iconic foods. Funnily enough, this pride of a nation was actually invented by a kitchen apprentice. On a historic day in 1832, Prince Wenzel von Metternich requested of his chef a special dessert to serve a group of important guests. Unfortunately, the chef fell ill. And the task was left to his 16 year old apprentice, Franz Sacher. The rest, as we say, is history!
The cake is still made today according to the original recipe and is enjoyed by visitors throughout Austria.
