I’m so excited! The Basic Art of Italian Cooking by Maria Liberati will be part of the digital exhibit at

Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna 

Also, part of this post Mantua, Mozart and Not Your Mother’s Mashed Potatoes will be included as part of the digital segment of the new exhibition.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum is located in Vienna, Austria. Opened around 1891, this museum is also known as the “Museum of Fine Arts.” Not only does the museum hold some of the most beautiful art collections, the building itself is opulently decorated with gold leaf, marble, and stucco ornamentations (Wikipedia).

A few of the more notable works in the picture gallery include the following items.

  • The Adoration of the Trinity (1511) by Albrecht Durer
  • The Madonna of the Rosary (1606-1607) by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
  • Self Portrait (1652) by Rembrandt (Wikipedia)

In light of the upcoming exhibits, let’s celebrate with a Viennese coffee recipe.
