If you have never had Elvis' favorite snack, a fried peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwich, you are in for a treat. Also, heart disease.

People have a bad habit of not distinguishing between pescetarian and vegetarian, especially since the former didn't have a good, well know label more than a decade or two ago, and because of various religions declaring fish not to count as meat.

Growing up, we ate a lot of chicken, and my mom made Chicken Marsala - which I loved. Then I was in a move called "The Bird People Meet the Chicken-Pluckers" and I completely lost my taste for chicken. My friend Elaine turned me on to Lobster Bisque - that's my favorite now - with Coconut Cream Pie for desert.

Regarding Hichcock, Those were the pre-Atkins days of "The Drinking Man's Diet". I wonder if that low carbohydrate meal were accompanied by a martini.
