If our 2010 America’s Classics Award winners got together to prepare dinner, it would be one incredible meal. Maybe they’d start things with a plate of cornmeal-crusted okra from the Bright Star in Bessemer, Alabama, or a quart of golden, crispy fries from Al’s French Frys in Vermont. Next would be Calumet Fisheries's oak-smoked seafood, a Chicago favorite. Albuquerque’s Mary & Tito’s fork-tender carne adovada would certainly be on the menu, maybe in an enchilada or an overstuffed burrito. Rounding out the meal you’d find homemade desserts from Gustavus Inn in Alaska, featuring their own raspberries and other garden goodies.

Unfortunately you’d have to travel around the country for a dinner like this, but we'll continue to dream.
