title page of Holiday Magazine Award Cookbook About the book: Holiday Magazine has bestowed the bay-leaf crown and crossed knife and fork on America's best restaurants for 24 years. In the beginning there were just 49 recipients; in recent years there have been more than 200.

Since then the world and the palate have changed. Americans visiting Europe have brought back expanded tastes, a greater knowledge of wines, and an increased appreciation for the niceties of fine service and artistic presentation that make dining a pleasant experience.

This found taste paired with the delights of our natural resources - unsurpassed beef, the cured hams of the South, fresh vegetables and fruits, and the culinary skills of different nationalities blended in the melting pot that is the United States -has produced an abundance of high-style restaurants.

Most North American restaurants offer a variety, a tour, as it were, of choice. The classic cookery of France reigns over many menus here and in Canada and Mexico; but Spanish, Italian, German, and Oriental specialties appear also, and native dishes serve as catalysts for, and interpreters of, these cartes du jour. The recipes in this book were selected by editor Charlotte Turgeon from a much larger number submitted by Award-winning chefs. Her aim has been to avoid duplication and to present a balanced and varied collection that includes soups, salads and appetizers as well as the spectacular entrees and desserts that most restaurants consider their showpieces. She gives the reader standard measurements and simple, step-by-step instructions-these are recipes that will work in the home kitchen- but there is still about these dishes an air of the special occasion.

This book is a trip, one that recalls Holiday Magazine's long association with travel. Introductions to each restaurant provide a look into the rooms of the establishment, admit you to the select company of diners, let you meet the chef and proprietor.
