We're doing Austrian food this weekend Cosmin. What do the Austrians eat? Are you kidding me the Romanians eat Austrian food all the time, where do you think schnitzel comes from honey. Ooooooh, yeah, schnitzel.
Cue excited Cosmin thinking he was going to have schnitzel.
Cue explanation that the whole point of the taste trail is for us to try new foods.
Cue sad looking Cosmin.
The Romanian's typically use pork for their schnitzel, therefore because veal is not pork this dish is new to us. Ahem.
I made Cosmin cook it and he did a darn fine job too.
