It's probably not the best idea to eat like Elvis all the time, but nothing beats his recipes for peanut butter and banana
sandwiches or fried okra. Elvis sure loved his fried foods. Learn how to make Southern cuisine and mouth-watering desserts fit
for dinner at your own Graceland, but don't over do it. After all, Elvis didn't end up a skinny-minny from eating all that fried
chicken cooked in pancake batter. (...)

My mother in law is an Elvis fanatic, so I thought this would be cute to add to her Elvis things. Since recipes come from his cook and plenty of pictures alot have never seen. She actually uses the recipes too. She loves it.

It's a complete cookbook with rare pictures and words of

Elvis. I love it some much. In this way we know what kind of food Elvis liked. The friends that he had and a lot of things.

WONDERFUL!!!

I bought this cookbook for myself, since I am such a big Elvis fan. It has lots of recipes, including the famous fried peanut butter and banana sandwich, which I can't wait to try. Most of the recipes in this book are Southern.

It also has a lot of pictures of Elvis with fans, his parents, etc. And information about what kinds of food he liked to eat, his generosity to his family and friends, and his love of Graceland. He is a legend that will always be remembered. I think that he would be proud to share his love of Southern cuisine, and his love of food in general. If you want to eat like the King of Rock n Roll, or you just love Elvis Presley, then I recommend this book.

FIT FOR A KING is my favorite of all my "Elvis" books. This book is overflowing with recipes, photos, inside information and wonderful, sweet memories. FIT FOR A KING was put together with thoughtfulness and sincerity. So many of the other books about Elvis are just an excuse to use his name and image. If you like music, food, nostalgia, and most of all, Elvis himself, then you will truly appreciate FIT FOR A KING.

Love it. It's for my cousin who has a huge Elvis collection but no cookbooks. She will love it too and I must say it also looked like it had some pretty good recipes.

Fun recipes that my kid loved. The pictures and story is more interesting. If you are going or have been to Graceland you know how important the kitchen was (even Lisa Marie attested to that on tour audio) and this book pieces a lot together.

Lots of recipes for simple dishes with clear instructions, not elaborate stuff with exotic ingredients. This book is full of good recipes for southern comfort foods. I love it, and I'm not that much of a fan.
