Joanna Erbslöh
Joanna came to Vienna for the weekend 4 years ago, fell in love and stayed. She loves to talk about food, write about food and feed people. She unapologetically refuses to be insulted by Viennese waiters. Tries to juggle her 6-month-old and her blog: Wien Wein Wunderbar. In her free time she loves to roam the vineyards and eat as much Erdäpfelsalat as she can pack in.
