Graceland's Table

Here is the cover of the upcoming book "Graceland's Table: Recipes And Meal Memories Fit For The King Of Rock And Roll" which will be published by Rutledge Hill Press on July, 4, 2005. The 240 pages hardcover book is written by Ellen Rolfes and EPE. Product Description: Graceland’s Table is the first cookbook to be written with the full cooperation of Elvis Presley Enterprises. In addition to recipes for Elvis’s favorite foods, the book will include photographs of Elvis at home and full-color food photos taken in Graceland for the book. The 175 recipes in Graceland’s Table will come from two sources: EPE’s archives of Elvis’s favorite recipes and Elvis’s fans. The recipes from the fans will be solicited through EPE’s electronic newsletter, its catalog, and the more than 400 fan clubs. Fans will submit a recipe they would have like to cook for Elvis should they have been invited to Graceland for a meal and to explain the reason for their choice. Fans will also be asked to submit recipes linked to a particular song or movie title or person in Elvis’s life (e.g. Love Me Chicken Tenders, Colonel Parkerhouse Rolls, Blue Suede Berry Pie. Twelve recipes will come from EPE and over 150 from the fans. The book will also have 35 B&W photos of Elvis and Graceland and 20 full-color food photos, trivia, and stories by those who knew Elvis such as Joe Esposito, member of the Memphis Mafia, Patty Perry, the only female member of the Memphis Mafia, and Marian Cocke, Elvis's nurse.

What about the cookbook put together by Mary Jenkins, one of Elvis's favorite cooks at Graceland? It was authorized by EPE. Also our club (Elvis Memphis Style) put together an EPE sanctioned cookbook several years ago. There may be others but those two come to mind.

Is this another cook book or have they just changed the cover ?

The good thing about the book is that food WAS the main thing in Elvis' life in the final days... He always used food as a way to connect to people. Those who have been to Graceland got it straight away : this big table in the first room on the left when you get into the house tells everyone about how Elvis felt : sit down and eat and make yourself feel at home. Although it's mainly business in EPE's hands I like this idea of people around the world virtually sitting around some gigantic table full of southern fried chicken with juicy tomatoes and bbq meat pizza and mashed potatoes with gravy and crispy bacon and a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Not fit for a diet but just good enough for an Elvis party with friends sharing the same taste.

That Elvis' legacy embraces more(unfortunately) than his
music is a direct reflection of the lifestyle he chose to live. I learned to accept this negative a long time ago. It's a part of who he was and it isn't going to go away. I plan to buy a copy of this book for the photos and, yes, the recipes, too. Who knows, there may be something really tasty between the pages.

Another great idea from EPE. As always they have come up with a project that has nothing to do with his musical legacy. This kind of thing I consider particularly in poor taste considering the "Fat Elvis" image he has and the part that his poor diet played in his demise.
