The original Mozart Dinner
"I enjoyed half a Kapaundal brought to me by my friend Primus..."
... wrote Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in October 1790 to his wife Constanze, who was taking the cure in Baden. The great composer valued poultry in his life as he did everything that was "good, genuine and expensive". Poultry had already been a particularly popular dish in his parents' house; the frequency with which the family afforded it suggests affluence. When Mozart returned home in no hurry from his fateful trip to Paris after his mother's death, his father Leopold (1719-1787) wrote to him impatiently: "everything wishes to see you here! ... the tresel, the maid (and) all 13 capons she has bought for you ... indeed, capons are already waiting for you". Father Mozart knew his son's favourite dish.
Our three-course dinner, carefully prepared by the kitchen team of the St. Peter Stiftskulinarium, was inspired by historical recipes from Mozart's time. The hosts Claus Haslauer & Veronika Kirchmayr are personally responsible for the journey of pleasure back to the old days. The Stiftskulinarium attaches great importance to quality and the very best regional and international products and will offer our discerning guests inspiring experiences of pleasure at the Mozart Dinner Concert.
