This year, Holi and Easter, the two festivals I associate with colors and happiness are celebrated only two days apart from each other.
Holi hai!!! is already over and Happy Easter is just about to come.
As an appreciation for your patronage and as a token of gratitude – just because, we are adding a Happy Holi & Easter Surprise Box/Bag to every order we send out.
The surprise wouldn’t remain a surprise if we’d tell you here on a public forum, but we decided to give you sneak-preview with this corn-oats-choco-beetroot flakes lollipop. The beetroot flakes are our attempt to make Holi and Easter colourful with natural colors.
Enjoy the holidays, look within what is important and enjoy good food!

Carinthia is a state in the South of Austria bordering to Italy. The Carinthian Dumplings are thicker than the Italian ravioli and definitely bigger than our beloved Tibetan momos.
Enjoy Erna’s current Weekly Meal that contains Zucchini Cream Soup followed by Carinthian Dumplings (choose: Quark-Potato-Mint or Smoked & Minced Chicken Stuffing) with a good serving of Salad with Yoghurt Dressing.
Info for our vegetarian friends: this meal contains egg.
Sujit Pillai says he loves Austrian food. I was thrilled when he ordered. A new customer AND he already knew about Austrian food, that’s quite rare. Generally people wonder: what is Austrian food about? Sausages and potatoes?
Yes, we Austrians love to eat sausages, and we adore our potatoes, but we have a few more delish dishes on offer too.
Sujit organised a get-together for his friends and their kids. Here is what he had to say in an sms:
Hello Maya, Wonderful food. Loved the egg salad and beetroot salad. Everyone was very happy. The dumplings were very nice too. Sujit
We are glad you and your guests enjoyed and we are grateful that you took out the time to write and call to let us know.
P.S.: Did you like what Sujit had to say? For more, find Erna’s Gourmet on various social media & ordering platforms:
Many times, when I am introduced to people as Austrian cuisine chef people give me a blank look and ask: so what do you cook? Boil potatoes and fry meat?
Doesn’t sound very exciting, isn’t it?
BUT, wait a minute, did you know that, over the centuries, Austrian food has been influenced by the scrumptious cuisines of its neighboring countries such as Italy, Czechia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland and more?
That means, we have our very own ravioli, and they are delicious. Even our national dish, the Wienerschnitzel is often reclaimed by our neighbors in Italy as Milanese Escalope. Imagine, even the dessert that we Austrians are so proud of as our very own tradition: Austrian apple strudel apparently stems from the Turkish baklava, isn’t that fun?

Mr. Tuppinger, the honeybee-master in Obermillstatt, is a very interesting guy. He’s been to all corners of the world and back and finally decided to settle in a small village of Carinthia called Obermillstatt to make natural and organic honey. He loves his bees, he takes care of them and he loves to share his vast knowledge about honey and bees.
To make a long story short: now he travels long and far up and down the mountains with his bees to get them to make the best honey. During summers he settles them onto the mountain pastures of the National Parks of High Tauern and Nockberge. They enjoy their summers just like Heidi and her friends.
Depending on where the bees are, the season and what they eat the honeys have distinct flavours, colours, and consistencies. For a long time honey used to be the only sweetener for desserts and cakes in Austria. It is not too long that traveling salespeople took sugar from India and thus revolutionized the production of a cheaper sweetener in Europe.
Whenever you’re on a holiday in Carinthia, you should go and check out the honeybee master, his wife and their bees. They even have a little shop with food and health products from their bees, like royal jelly, candles and of course honeys.
Unfortunately, their webpage is only in German, but there are nice pics and a map too. Here’s the link: http://www.bienenhof-millstaettersee.at
“Eat your salad, finish the spinach, try the soup!” memories of your childhood? Catching yourself telling the same to your own kids now? Still waiting for them to start liking those super-healthy vegetables?
Let’s face it: health is just the fantastic outcome or the aim, but it generally fails to be persuasive as an argument.
Here are some tips and tricks how you can out-smart yourself 😉
- Kids love what they are used to and not what is tasty to them. Serving a new vegetable or dish repeatedly helps kids to get used to the look, texture, and taste.
- You are a role-model. When you want your junior to eat something, it helps when you eat the same veggie or dish yourself – with joy, pleasure and delight.
- Better than cooking different meals for the wide range of palates available in your family, involve your children in the shopping process. If you can’t take them to the market, let them choose which vegetables you should bring. It teaches your kids to take decisions and they’ll look forward to the vegetables they chose.
With Erna’s Gourmet you can create an edgy difference to your children’s vegetables:
…serve cucumber and carrots pieces with Erna’s Hummus.
… make a sandwich: spread Erna’s Rucola Spread on multigrain bread, add sliced red, green and yellow capsicum and enjoy!
