Description: The King is dead, but his memory lives on and shines brighter today than ever. Although he became the King, Elvis Presley never forgot his roots. He lived like a king, but he ate like the common people who loved him in life -- and will always love him. 

Are You Hungry Tonight? is a collection of recipes for the dishes Elvis loved to eat. He preferred honest, hearty, rib-sticking food, the kind that Southern women have always fed their tired men at the end of a long day. If Elvis were to come into your own dining room, he'd want to be served the same kind of good home cooking that his mother, Gladys, put on the table in Tupelo, Mississippi, those many long years ago. These are the traditional Southern dishes -- grits, black-eyed peas, ham, bacon, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and plenty of homemade country gravy. This book includes recipes for all these favorites and more. 

If you were to set your table for a meal with Elvis, or even if you just want to create a special meal in honor of his memory, what would you serve? One sure way to the King's heart was a big plate of sliced beefsteak tomatoes. Freshly sliced tomatoes were a true favorite of his, and no meal served in his memory should begin without them. But choose any of the recipes in Are You Hungry Tonight? and you can't go wrong. 

At some point in the 1950s, Elvis became fond of a dish which is now most frequently associated with him. Although he probably did not invent the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich, he certainly made it his signature food. You'll find step-by-step instructions for this tasty sandwich here.
