Graceland’s table : recipes and meal memories fit for the king of rock and roll
Recipes submitted by fan club members and those who knew or met him. Some recipes are those that Elvis might have liked, and some he ate regularly.
His personal nurse at one time, Ms. Cocke, shares her meeting Elvis the
first time (“When I went into the building that morning, I knew the minute
I walked in the door that Elvis was already there. There was a static
electricity in the air that was just overpowering. That might sound funny,
but it’s the truth”). She submits an excellent banana pudding recipe (p.
222). Some recipes are southern cooking, some eclectic.  The first and
only cookbook produced with the cooperation of Elvis Presley Enterprises
and 400 fan clubs worldwide.  Features photos from Elvis’ early days, with
fans, and from movies.  Includes informative and personal 1- to 4-page
vignettes from people who knew Elvis or wish they did, which hint at the
amazing affect he had on people.  Recipes for appetizers, soups,
vegetables, salads, meat and seafood with readily available ingredients
and clear instructions. Do try the Tuna seashell pasta salad, Too much
monkey business bread, and Pizza for Elvis. Also has the classic peanut
butter and banana sandwich recipe.
