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.
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.
