(Gibson) Veteran British pop superstar Sir Cliff Richard so impressed a Tennessee restaurant owner with his culinary skills, that she offered him work as a chef.
According to Music-news.com, Britain's "Peter Pan of Pop" was recently in Memphis working on a soul album (Soulicious) with producer David Gest and singers Freda Payne and Candi Staton.
While visiting Gus's Fried Chicken in Memphis, Gest bet Richard that he couldn't cook Southern food. Sir Cliff, however, cooked up a feast and Staton said she had, "never seen a white man cook Cajun fried rice and southern potato salad like Cliff; he's obviously got a lot of soul in that rather lean body of his." more on this story
