It was snowing outside but some other food lovers and I were keeping it warm as we were gathered at NENI Kochschule to indulge in the art of making good food with Mrs Haya.
Although I wasn’t supposed to blog about food anymore because I am more and more into fashion and traveling, I thought I should make an exception and share my experience with all of you who love my Vienna tips, good food, and cooking lessons. After all, The Viennese Girl blog is all about the things that I like.
The cooking lesson lasted about five hours. I have to say, I wasn’t bored at all because Mrs Haya, with her passion and temperament, created such a cheerful atmosphere by telling us stories and showing us how to make the perfect bread, most delicious sweets, and mouth watering soup among many other delicious dishes.
Time passed by without even noticing it. I was really impressed by Mrs Haya’s good organization and professionalism. You know, it’s not easy to be a head of a team and guide 10 persons at the same time.
As you can tell from the photos, I tried to capture the beauty and the action. I focused on the action and less on the people. There was a lot of movement, spontaneity and no natural light. A real photography challenge for me.
The whole experience was like a food party that took my memories back to Instabul and reminded me of my favourite film : A touch of Spice (don’t tell me you don’t know that movie). I have never experienced something like that in Vienna. Great music (even Greek music), great experience and above all…great food at Neni Kochschule.

June is literally not a fun month for me because of the exams at the university but I needed to walk around with my camera in one hand and a Kurt frozen yogurt in another and breathe some fresh air while taking some pictures at the center of Vienna, as I used to do back in the first June I was in Vienna, four years ago. Here are some snapshots that I love to share with you all on The Viennese Girl blog.♥
The more it’s getting warmer, the more I spend time sitting outside. You will find me somewhere in the center of Vienna doing some people watching for hours. I often forget how much time has passed and other more important things that must be done, than watching people passing by for so long.
The more it’s getting warmer, the more I feel the need to spend some time on a beautiful terrace with a bunch of good friends sipping wine, or even better, summer cocktails.
Cafe bloom is the cafe bar of the Hotel LAMÉE. It has a beautiful terrace with view over the Viennese roofs in the first district and the cathedral Stephansdom of Vienna. Take the lift and go to the ninth floor.

I had the perfect afternoon light and the perfect flowers in front of me. Fortunately, I also had my camera with me. I spent about one hour taking photos of those gorgeous peonies in Burggarten the other day and wouldn’t mind to spend one more hour if I didn’t had to leave for an appointment.
I spotted them unexpectedly although I can recall, they were there, at the same place, last year as well. If you see the peonies in Burggarten, you cannot just ignore them and walk past. Don’t say that I was the one who was taking pictures of them. They must be one of the touristic attractions on spring in Vienna, I guess. Sadly enough, they will wither soon but then we will have the flowers in Volksgarten, if my memory doesn’t fool me from last year.
I love Volksgarten Pavillon in Vienna for two personal reasons:
First reason: it reminds me of Samos.
Second reason: this is the place where my best friend in Vienna and I used to catch up during the summer.
Finally the weather is warm again in Vienna, and we can spend some time together sitting outside here. The decoration is a little bit strange. By saying strange, I mean that it has a touch of vintage and it looks a bit untended.
It’s not really a fancy place but it evokes a certain summer mood, summer feeling and a lot of carefreeness. Although it is located in the center of Vienna, near to Hofburg, it seems that it’s not discovered by tourists yet, but after this post I don’t know… 🙂
