The home of Mozart, the Sound of Music and Arnie (Schwarznegger) provides the fifth leg of the Hairy Bikers' adventure. The trip starts in Vienna, patisserie capital of the world and ends atop the spectacular Grossglockner Alpine pass, one of the world's most spectacular biking roads.
This is a journey of classics and a lot of cakes. In Vienna, Si and Dave unravel the mystery of the two, competing Sachertorte recipes and taste the latest version -Sachertorte "Reloaded". They make Apfelstrudel with the owner of a roadside B&B, cook Linzertorte in Linz and a chocolate gugelhupf cake for a bunch of bikers from Huddersfield.
Along the way, they also meet a former baking world-champion to see how he has re-invented gingerbread and discover the "green gold" of Austria, nutritious, delicious pumpkin seed oil. In this largely Catholic country, the bikers overnight in a monastery and are up with the lark to cook kipferl, a giant "brioche meets croissant", for the monk's breakfast.
And, of course, you can't travel through Austria without learning to yodel. That's where Fritz comes in; mountain-man, wood-fire cook and yodel-coach, a real one-off. The bikers also cook breakfast in a monastery and learn to yodel. Suffice it to say that Austria and its baking is a revelation.
The Hairy Bikers' Bakeation: Austria is first broadcast on BBC Two & the BBC HD channel at 8.00pm, Tuesday 10th April 2012. For further broadcast details, and to watch online where available, visit bbc.co.uk.
