Smooth, creamy and delicious – who doesn’t love a good sauce accompanying their meat, fish or vegetables! In Austria, the classic is the freshly-made chive and/or garlic sauce which makes a huge difference to a meal and really completes the taste experience. The sauces are the “crowning glory”, so to speak, of many dishes. Dip, dip, hooray!



  • 250 g sour cream
  • 1 pot of crème fraîche 
  • 1 dash of yoghurt
  • 1 bunch of chives/4 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions for Chive and Garlic Sauce

  1. Mix sour cream, crème fraîche and yoghurt ensuring that there are no lumps.
  2. Finally, chop chives and/or crush garlic and stir into the cream. Last but not least, season to taste!

GOES WELL WITH Baked Mushrooms or Baked Swiss Cheese

Because of tasty and crisp outer and juicy centre Austrians love Baked mushrooms.
With their tasty and crisp outer and juicy centre, Baked Mushrooms are one of the most popular dishes amongst the simple Austrian pub classics.
Baked Swiss cheese - a classic of the Austrian vegetarian cuisine! Rightly so, thanks to crispy breadcrumbs and soft cheese.
For a great vegetarian Austrian dish, try Baked Swiss Cheese. This raw milk cheese not only tastes delicious cold but is also really diverse when heated.


The sauce can be served immediately although it tastes better if you let it stand for a bit.
