This a very simple but tasty dish. Kasspatzln with melted cheese and fried onions are a typical Tyrolean meal and will certainly fill a hole if you’re hungry!

There are these days. It happens to all of us. It’s time to make lunch and I just don’t know what to make. Honestly speaking, it happens to me quite often. Well, if I’m at a loss, these spinach dumplings are just the thing! They are easy to make and always a hit with my boys. They contain enough spinach so my kids and I can enjoy healthy nutrients. They taste positively decadent, without needing any high-price ingredients. And they are wonderful to freeze and eat later. Here is my recipe for cooking delicious spinach dumplings. Sometimes it helps to have a visual: Watch the video below where we will walk you through every step of how to make them. Enjoy!

Outside the wind whistles and the rain pours, but inside the warm farmhouse kitchen it's nice and cosy. The scent of freshly baked cookies fills the air and reminds me of my childhood, when we would pinch the odd biscuit straight from the tray as soon as they came out of the oven. With Christmas just around the corner, I am looking forward to making my own cookies once again this year. Farmer and baking expert Karoline Schapfl kindly invited me into her kitchen in Lans to share some of her top tips.

Among Tirol's many unique distilled drinks, Krautinger schnapps is perhaps the most peculiar one. You either love it or hate it, they say. Most people hate it. But is it possible to create a drinkable summer cocktail from it anyway? We put our trusted bartenders to the challenge – and learned a lot about taste and flavour.
