"The Neue Galerie in New York is this tiny, well thought out museum focusing on the art of Vienna, and this publication is chef Gutenbrunner’s cookbook version of that establishment. Encompassing his love for Austrian food and Viennese cafes, the book includes recipes from three traditional restaurants: Wallsé, Café Sabarsky, and Blaue Gans. When you are done using it for dinner, it doubles as a coffee table art piece." ~Zagat
"What makes this book unique, though (besides its being one of the better Austrian cookbooks on the market), is that it's not just a reflection of Viennese food culture throughout the ages; it's also a portrait of the Neue Galerie museum and the art inside. Curator Janis Staggs has written a great overview of the art scene in Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, and the book features many reproductions from the museum. A little food for thought, if you will." ~Village Voice
