Babette's is a culinary bookstore with an inventory of over 2500 books. After opening on the Schleifmühlgasse in 2002, this hotspot for gastronomic literature became so popular that a second branch was soon added in the 1st district. The original store has a fully equipped kitchen in the back, which chef Bernadette Woerndl uses to whip up her weekly specials of Austrian and international cuisine. Twice a week, Babette's owner, Mrs. Pernstlich, uses her in-store cooking space to give private cooking lessons to companies or any interested individuals who want to learn something new. The store in the 1st district specializes in spices and the expert staff is as adept at informing customers about exotic flavors from around the world, as they are at creating their own unique blends. Try the specialty pepper from the Cambodian province of Kampot; there's nothing quite like it! Show lessRead more
