Elvis Presley: The Life and Cuisine of Elvis Presley by David Adler

160 pages/Seiten; 23x20 cm; Paperback:

Food Fit For A King
The Definitive Elvis Cookbook
'A splendid book.' The Independent
Unlike most celebrities who are distant from their fans, Elvis was a star of the people; Elvis, rich and famous, was still one of them. His cuisine reflects his life - both innocent and fabulous. In this celebration of Elvis's lust for life and food, David Adler went where the King ate and talked to the people he dined with. He came up with some 70 delicious recipes from Elvis's table and a host of colourful stories about the King from those who knew him best. It is the story of Elvis's life through the food he ate and the people who fed him.

In Thipelo, Adler learnt about young Elvis's favourite dishes during a family reunion at his birthplace. He discovered the school fare of Humes High cafeteria and the roadside cuisine of the Gridiron in south Memphis as well as the Army Cook School in Fort Lee, Virginia, to experience first-hand the food that fuelled Elvis. He sampled the opulent buffets of Las Vegas, the spectacular luaus of Hawaii and the glitzy fare of Hollywood. He was given the recipes for Elvis and Priscilla's Wedding Cake and the 'Love Me Slender' diets. But the icing on the cake was the time he was prepared dinner by Elvis's Graceland cook, served on the King's own plates.

* Southern cooking raised to new baroque heights.
* Snacking without guilt.
* Eating whenever, whatever and however much you want.

Artist description "Presley, Elvis"

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)! Elvis Presley CD albums, vinyl records as LPs or singles at 45rpm - Bear Family offers a huge number of various Elvis Presley CDs, vinyl-LPs and 45rpm singles, vinyl- and CD box sets, books and mags, DVDs, unique and extraordinairy memorabilia! Let's say it in the words of one of Elvis sixties album title: There is "Something For Everybody"! And hey, you name it! Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever! Bear Family Records treats his legacy with the most respect and an optimum capacity of expert knowledge.
