AMERICAN HOTEL DINERS PREFER
GERMAN VIANDS TO THOSE OF
“No doubt about it,” —ys Basil
Hill, the chef wbo accompanied Pres-
Ident Grant on hla tear around the
world, and who h— been employed
at tbe Standish hotel of Denver, fer
over a year. “American people are
fondest of German food. I know I
never gue— wrong’when I prepare a
plentiful supply of German pot roast.
’"The reason for this eholoe is that
in moat hotels it is tba near—t ap
proach to real horns cooking. Per
haps a good many people wbo pre
tend to be real high-toned will order
dishes with high-sounding French
names, but in the long run the major
ity will call for German viands,
whether they have ever eaten tbs—
particular on— or not.”
It go— without —ying that in the
vernal months of tbs year a German
beverage Is preferred to any other—
