a style of cuisine native to Austria and composed of influences from throughout the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Regional cuisines from Italy, Hungary and the Balkans have had an effect on Austrian cooking, and in turn this fusion of styles was influential throughout the Empire.
Austrian cuisine is most often associated with Viennese cuisine, but there are significant regional variations.
Almost every village has its own bakery, offering a large choice of freshly baked sweet and savoury rolls daily from 6am.
Rye bread (Vollkornbrot, Bauernbrot) is the traditional staple food among peasants.
There is also the common white bread roll (Semmel) which does not have such a heavy taste.
Austrian food is distinctive and delicious, and is traditionally of the stodgy, hearty "meat and dumplings" variety.

Knödel are a kind of dumpling which can be made either sweet or savory according to taste.
