Vienna's Hotel Sacher reinvents itself for Valentine's Day

Description

Vienna (Austria), Feb 13 (EFE / EPA), (Camera: Christian Bruna/Álex Giménez).- Having a traditional Austrian chocolate cake delivered to your door by a bellboy worthy of a Wes Anderson movie is an ideal way to kick off Valentine’s Day celebrations but it is also a unique initiative one traditional purveyor has undertaking in a bid to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 lockdown in Vienna. “This year the Sachertorte would be the perfect present for Valentine’s Day,” Andreas Keese, manager of Vienna’s Hotel Sacher, tells Efe in a dining room that would normally be packed with guests. Before the pandemic, large groups of tourists would line up patiently for a chance to sample this most-famous of Viennese desserts, but the Covid-19 restrictions has forced the famous café to find a different approach by delivering the cake, which comprises a sponge bases smothered in apricot jam and coated in unctuous chocolate icing.FOOTAGE OF HOTEL SACHER IN VIENNA.SOUNDBITES OF ANDREAS KEESE, MANAGER OF HOTEL SACHER.
