The dish first appeared in the 19th century in a cookbook from 1831. However, some say the recipe was brought from Italy to Vienna in 1857. As there are many stories told, the most popular urban myth claims that an adventurous Austrian commander stumbled upon the Italian dish milanese (also known as “Milanese veal cutlet”) during a conflict in the late 19th century. The Wiener schnitzel was created when he instructed his cooks to create their own recipe back in Vienna. Today, from every house, and street stall to dozens of restaurants, everyone sells this delicious food.
