Birds of a feather eat Schnitzels together
Like many of us during these strange times, I have happily channelled celebrity cook Nigella Lawson in the kitchen. I've enjoyed sampling new recipes after-hours wading through cookbooks and utilising fresh herbs and vegetables from my small garden plot. Masterchef has become my bible.

Do you know what is really strange though? In spite of the creative and hearty meals I delivered during isolation - which were all well received, I might add - I was really hanging out for a chicken schnitzel from the pub. You know the drill: breadcrumbs, chips, side salad and toppings not compulsory. Nothing flash, yet good simple fare that leaves you satisfied.

So was I thrilled with the recent easing of restrictions when we enjoyed lunch at the Alexandra Hills Hotel. Of course, I ordered the chicken schnitty. I now have a better understanding of what addicts go through during the withdrawal process.

The Alex, as it is affectionately known, is continuing its social distancing measures and following all health requirements. The food and coffee was good pub food and as you can see from the photos, we were all pleased to enjoy Aussie standards after months of my experimentation in the kitchen.

A pat on the back to the staff: the customer service was excellent and all the staff said they were thrilled to be back at work - and it showed!

The Alexandra Hills Hotel is located at the corner of McDonald and Finicune Road, Alexandra Hills. Restaurant hours are between 10am and 10pm and you can reserve your table online here, or by contacting 07 3824 4444.

These have been difficult months and supporting local is important. And I do enjoy going out for my schnitty. What about you?
