I have lived in France, Canada and Belgium and returned after more than 20 years back to my hometown Vienna. When I was young, I remember my mother writing recipes in my cooking-diary, so that I could carry on the taste of Jewish home cooking everywhere I went. Through my years I have carried on this tradition with my family and friends and would like to share it with you.
I love to cook and have guests experience the Jewish taste and love of the culinary history behind the traditional recipes. My cooking style is colourful and honest, it's comfort food of the old world. The ingredients are unprocessed and if possible regional from the farmers market. There is place for experiments, however my favourites make a repeat appearance. I love citrus fruits and garlic, especially the combination of both!
I like to cook with many spices and fresh herbs like Coriander and Dill. I do love oriental flavors, thats why I'm a big Ottolenghi fan, sometimes things might get spicy! I cook Kosher. There are vegetarian and dairy products or a hearty meat dish on the table, but never both at the same time. Food memories haunt me until I recreate them and I long for a good Malabi, a cold dessert based on almond milk and rosewater.

I have a weakness for goat cheese and pears, freshly baked bread and pastry, especially from an Antwerp bakery called " KLEINBLATT" and salted butter-caramel
We were a group of 5 people and we had a great experience. Maschi was an excellent host, and the food was delicious. Her home was very nice, and she told us a lot about every meal as well as giving us great tips for Vienna. I will highly recommend an eatwith event at her place.

Maschi was so lovely to host us relatively last minute for the Xmas Eve.
We enjoyed her easy going hospitality-we felt at home - her delicious home made food and her gorgeous innercity apartment.
Thanks for making the evening special to us Maschi!!!

The meal Maschi prepared for us was excellent. From the welcome cocktail to the dessert everything was well presented. We enjoyed learning how each dish was prepared and even had a bit of a cooking lesson.
Maschi gave us insider tips on Vienna which came in very handy.
I would defiantly recommend this dining experience.
