Easter Photos 2008

Here are two photos from Easter 2008 in Wolfsberg. The first shows the traditional Austrian Easter dinner: raisin bread, hardboiled eggs, (cold) ham, wurst (salami), tongue meat, and freshly grated horseradish. Easter is like Thanksgiving in the USA, you eat a big meal on Saturday afternoon, then have leftovers for the rest of the weekend (but, no football on TV). The ham and horseradish is a particularly nice combination.

The second photo shows a couple walking home from Easter mass. They are wearing very nice traditional clothing. I was particularly impressed with the man's hat, and I thought of the American song Easter Parade ... in Austria the men wear the colorful hats (Easter bonnets)!

Andy, these restaurant and food posts have been great! I want to try the pizzoccheri, but I've never seen wide buckwheat noodles here. Do you think Japanese soba would work? Maybe I should get the pasta machine out and make my own...
