This book is of a biography of Elvis through the food that he ate. I can’t say that much of this is my kind of food, but the writer did some interesting research about his eating habits and food likes and how food related to Elvis’s life.
Below is the promo piece from the publisher that was included in the review copy package.
The publisher also thought Elvis’ Shopping List was important to include separately to reviewers.
I could never buy this book because, unfortunately, this is exactly the kind of food I would eat around the clock if left to my own devices. I only committed to getting slightly healthier eating habits a few years ago. But there’s no question that junk food, preferably fried, is still where my own radar takes me if I don’t become my own school guard.
I remember when this book came out. I didn’t get it because I lean so much to vintage but looking at this I realize that it’s actually a great premise for a cookbook as well as a great collection of Elvis trivia that you probably can’t find anywhere else. Someone’s eating habits is a great and original angle to do a bio from.
I’m tempted to print out that shopping list and have myself and Elvis kind of weekend!
Another great book!!!…
I love the photo of Elvis pouring the tea, he looks so proper!
