Subject: Austrian village potato salad
Hi we had this recipe many times @ my gf house she orders it from Austrian
village located on Huntington pike in Rockledge, Pa. It does not have
mayonnaise in it, the potatoes are sliced not cubed, there is parsley but I
can,t figure out the oil & vinegar mix... Can u help?
Well, of course Lotte doesn't give out the recipe for "Lotte's secret potato
salad." I don't know of any way to get that recipe. I looked for a copycat
recipe or "tastes like". The only recipe that I could find that mentioned
tasting similar was this one: German Potato Salad
As for recommendations, I've never had the potato salad at The Austrian
Village Restaurant, so I could not recommend a recipe. There are dozens of
German potato salads on the web. Austrian Village has a website at:
The owners of
Austrian Village are Gottlieb & Lotte Burits according to the site. Gottlieb Burits
and Head Chef Werner Lauinger are from Austria, but Lotte, the creator of the
potato salad, is from Swabia, in Germany. If she based her potato salad recipe
on one from her homeland, then these Swabian Potato Salad recipes might help:
German Food at About.com
Cup of Sugar Pinch of Salt
Spaces and Spices
These are Austrian Potato Salad recipes, as is the one below:

Austrian Potato Salad
I'll post this on the site. It's possible that a reader who has actually had
the Austrian Village Restaurant potato salad can recommend a recipe.
From "Austrian Appetit(E): Austrian Dishes and Recipes" By Isabella Fleck

Subject: Grandmothers Broccoli Casserole
Years and years ago my grandmother used to make a broccoli casserole that had 2 boxes of frozen chopped broccoli,
10 eggs (i think), grated colby jack cheese, and cottage cheese.. I can not remember the rest of the items or the
exact measurements... This was from the 70's or 80's and I think she cut it out of the Fort Worth Star Telegram..
but I can't find it in the archives... HELP!!! I really want to make this for my family but can not find it anywhere..
Thank you in advance
Hello Jo Beth,
Sorry, I had no success with this recipe. No trace. Nada. There are similar recipes, but I found none exactly like
your description. See below for a couple of those similar recipes. They donít contain exactly the same amounts of
ingredients. 10 eggs is a lot Ė most recipes have six eggs. Several with colby cheese, but not with colby jack cheese.
Many with 1 package of frozen broccoli, but few with 2 packages (thatís why yours needs 10 eggs....). Not a trace of
anything quite like your description from the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
Iíll post this. Thereís always a chance that someone else saved that recipe out of the Star Telegram years ago.

Subject: Cole slaw recipe
Hello, as a girl whose mother did not cook I ate in a lot of Diners... One
was the Oak Lane Diner @66 & Broad St in Philadelphia. I've tried but can
never duplicate. I think there may have been radishes? Or something with a
wonderful bite of flavor. This cole slaw was to die for. Maybe u can solve
this mystery. Thanks.
This is another of those cases where the restaurant is reviewed dozens of
times on travel and restaurant review sites, but no one gives a clue about
any of their dishes. I did not find any recipes, copycats, or "tastes-likes."
I did not find even a good description of the cole slaw.
Their menu is here: Oak Lane Diner
The cole slaw is mentioned 15 times on the menu, but there isn't a clue as
to what's in it.
I can't solve a mystery without clues. If it's practical for you to go
there, your best chance is probably just to go in and ask your waitress for
the coleslaw recipe.
I'll post this request on my site in case a reader who is familiar with the
Oak Lane Diner coleslaw can help.
