Decatur Schnitzel Spot Lets Urbanites Get a Taste of International Celebrations and Cuisine

DECATUR, GA (November 28, 2012) – As the holidays approach, families prepare for the season with cozy traditions including trimming the tree, baking cookies and beyond. To celebrate these pastimes and offer fun ways to get a taste of global traditions, schnitzel restaurant Seven Hens launches its Holiday Schnitzel Menu.

Beginning November 28, the eatery periodically highlights one of its internationally themed sandwiches and celebrates the indigenous holiday traditions of the areas that inspire that dish’s distinct flavors. Each week from now until December 22, guests can stop by Seven Hens to enjoy a themed schnitzel sandwich for $6* and learn about how families across the globe celebrate the holiday season.

WHAT: Holiday Schnitzel Menu at Seven Hens
The restaurant features one of its globally inspired schnitzel sandwiches for $6* each week. These international traditions breed unique flavor, apparent in each creation:

The Italian | Children in Italy await the arrival of Befana, an old woman bearing gifts much like the American Santa Claus, on Epiphany Eve. Inspired by this rich heritage, sandwich flavors go bold with classic Italian seasoning, pesto and sun-dried tomato aioli.

The Mexican | A primary tradition in Mexico is La Posada, a reenactment of the Christmas story. Families also enjoy decorating with indigenous poinsettias and celebrating with piñatas. This colorful culture inspires the sandwich’s picante seasoning, chipotle aioli and cilantro mojo.

The French | In France, little lumières place empty shoes in front of their fireplaces, hoping that the beloved Père Noël will leave them gifts. This finesse bids bonjour to the sandwich’s signature French seasoning, Dijon mustard and olive tapenade aioli.

The American | Across the country, families celebrate Christmas with trees and stockings, Hanukkah with menorahs and dreidels, Kwanzaa with kinaras and feasts and other holidays with a bevy of sacred pastimes. This melting pot of traditions inspires a sandwich with Cajun-style seasoning, BBQ sauce and classic American coleslaw.

For more about how each region celebrates the holidays, Seven Hens offers information in the restaurant for families to pursue.
