Frankfurter, Viennese, Hot Dogs - It's All About the Sausage
Wiener, Frankfurter, Hot Dogs - Es geht um die Wurst!
Viennese ham on the bone is more and more considered to be a delicious MUST on the international breakfast table. But the most famous creation of the Viennese butcher is the Frankfurter sausage, probably also known under other names too - famed worldwide as "Vienna sausage" it is the main ingredient of the hot dog.
The hot dog was born, perfect for the public at football and baseball games.
The last step in making a sausage is the skillful tying off of the skin, which the Viennese butcher still does by hand today. Everything has an end - except for the sausage - which has two.
The sausage stands as a cultural institution that occupies the space between cuisine and a place to exchange views is as much a topic of this documentary as historic observations on eating habits.
