Imperial Torte - The exquisite master confection, handmade at Hotel Imperial Vienna

Legend has it that a kitchen apprentice created the Imperial Torte in honour or Emperor Franz Josef I to mark the opening of the hotel in 1873. This event marked the birth of the superb Imperial Torte. The young scullion Xavier Loibner guarded the recipe with his life, and it has been a secret ever since. People‘s enjoyment of the cake is still as exquisite today as it was in 1873: a mouthwatering chocolate icing, a s lightly tart aroma of almonds and the fusion of chocolate cream and marzipan combined to make the perfect composition. This speciality is in a class of its own: every slice takes you back to imperial Vienna in the year 1873.
