Hairy Bikers' Bakeation30 Minute Versions: 5. Austria
The home of Mozart, the Sound of Music and Arnie provides the fifth leg of the Hairy Bikers' adventure. The trip starts in Vienna, patisserie capital of the world, and ends atop the Grossglockner Alpine pass, one of the world's most spectacular biking roads. This is a journey of classics and a lot of cakes. In Vienna, Si and Dave unravel the mystery of the two competing Sachertorte recipes and taste the latest version - Sachertorte Reloaded.
They make apfelstrudel with the owner of a roadside B&B, cook linzertorte in Linz and a chocolate gugelhupf cake for a bunch of bikers from Huddersfield. And, of course, you can't travel through Austria without learning to yodel. That's where Fritz comes in - mountain-man, wood-fire cook and yodel-coach, a real one-off. Suffice it to say that Austria and its baking is a revelation.
