In the depths of winter, only a meal that’s hearty and comforting can warm you. This menu, inspired by Austrian favorites, does just that. It begins with a creamy, garlicky soup whose body comes not from potatoes (as is typical) but roasted turnips. The main course is a meal in one: tender red wine-braised pot roast with mushrooms and root vegetables, alongside parsley-flecked schupfnudeln, the beloved Austrian finger-shaped dumplings. Finish everything with a classic jam-filled Linzer torte.
