Nuss Kipferl Nut Croissant

Filed under: Austrian Pastry,Buy - Order Online — admin @ 8:23 pm

The Kipferl has its origin from the wars of the Austrians against the Turkish. The Kipferl stands for the Turkish crescent which can be eaten symbolical.

When the daughter Marie Antoinette of the Austrian Empress Maria Theresia married the French monarch Ludwig XVI, she brought the Kipferl to France. That implied the croissant which became such an important symbol of France. The only difference between the Kipferl and the Croissant is, the Kipferl from Austria is made of baker’s yeast dough, while the French Croissant is made of Danish pastry.

The baker company Thurner Beugl from the federal state of Burgenland lets the old tradition of the Viennese bakery liven up again. 40 years ago Rosi and Herbert Thurner founded their company Thurner Beugl and in short time they became an important name in Austria. If you once have the opportunity to taste the Nusskipferl from Thurner Beugl, you know the reason why.

The origin of the Landjäger raw sausage is located in the federal state of Voralberg, in the outermost western part of Austria. In that part of Austria the sausages were used as long-lasting snack during work in the fields or walks in the mountains.
Nowadays the Landjägers are popular in the whole south of the German speaking area (Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Switzerland and Austria).

The sausage manufacturer Handl from Tyrol was able to create a very special version of the Landjäger. The manufacture only takes place after a very careful selection of the raw materials from the pork and the beef. After addition of traditional spices, the raw material is pressed in special forms. The Landjäger becomes its shape while staying three days there. After the three days the Landjägers were smoked over beech wood. After that the sausages are matured and dried for one whole week.

Harmonical spices are the reasons for the substantial and nourishing flavour of the Landjäger. The long shelf life is secured by the large-scale smoke and drying process of the Tirolean sausage manufacturer Handl.

The company Manner was founded in 1890. Only 8 year later the Viennese candy manufacturer was able to create the world famous wafer creation.

The philosophy of Manner was, as everybody in Vienna knew: “chocolate for everyone”. In that time chocolate was pure luxury for the working class.

Since 1924 the hazelnut waffles are packed in the famous two five rows in one package. First in a paper box, and since 1949 in a package of aluminium film, how its sold today.

The title “Neopolitaner” on the package comes from the halzelnutcream. In former time the hazelnuts for that cream were bought in the Italian city of Naples.
