An Unexpected Marriage And Cook Off Is Viddsee Shortee Apr 2018



The return of Adam, their son, from his American college education was a highly anticipated day for Peah and Abu.

However, he didn’t return alone.


By his side was Carmen, his American girlfriend and, surprise, soon-to-be bride!


Carmen’s Western upbringing and modern outlook on marriage was a stark contrast to Peah’s conservative beliefs.



Unable to accept her son’s fiancée, she challenged Carmen to a cook-off, to prepare the family’s favourite dish, a traditional fish stew.


What could have been a recipe for disaster brought the family together, and they were all the better for it!
