Elvis Presley, The Fools Gold Loaf, Champagne and The Hanger
We love this article from Messy Nessy Chic....It details the famous Elvis craving of 1976.
Late one evening, Lisa Marie, the private jet of one Elvis Aaron Presley is fueled and ready for take-off from Memphis, Tennessee en route to Denver, Colorado. There's a restaurant there, well known to the locals, The Colorado Mine Company.
Making Elvis salivate were stories of the "Fool's Gold Load" made from a whole loaf, filled with a jar of peanut butter AND a jar of blueberry jam PLUS half a kilo of bacon! Don't forget the butter too!
Elvis and his entourage never got to the restaurant instead the owners and their young chef met them at the airport and joined them in the feast.
