After the private tour concluded, Lisa Marie invited Oprah and Gayle to dinner at the Presley family table, the first nonfamily dinner guests since the King passed away.
The meal was a traditional Southern buffet featuring all of Elvis's favorite foods—corn bread, macaroni and cheese, black-eyed peas, creamed corn, fried chicken, fried catfish, okra, fried corn, fried green tomatoes, butter beans, and biscuits. Then it was time for dessert—strawberry cake, red velvet cake and banana pudding! "Elvis had a lot of food he liked," Oprah says.
Lisa Marie's husband, music producer and guitarist Michael Lockwood, joined them for dinner. Both Lisa Marie and Michael are vegetarians, but meat dishes were specially made for Oprah and Gayle. Talk about Southern hospitality!
