Sacher Torte

A Taste of Tradition: Imagine sinking your fork into layers of moist chocolate cake, sandwiched together with a sumptuous layer of apricot jam, and enveloped in a glossy chocolate glaze. That’s the Sacher Torte experience, a harmonious blend of flavors that has stood the test of time.

Origins and Legacy: Our story begins in 1832, in the heart of Vienna, Austria. It was here that Franz Sacher, a young apprentice chef, created the first iteration of what would later become the Sacher Torte. Tasked with concocting a dessert fit for royalty, Sacher rose to the occasion, crafting a masterpiece that would earn its place in culinary history.

What would Sacher Torte be like without Vienna and what would Vienna be like without Sacher Torte?

Some things are so connected to each other, that you cannot even imagine them apart.
You can find Sacher Torte in other countries but they are done exquisitely in the country they originated from.

Today we said “Let’s pretend that we are tourists” and jumped into the cafe of the Hotel Sacher. When the sky turns grey, a good friend and that famous piece of chocolate cake with whipped cream next to it is all I need to feel happy.
