AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Part stand-up, part-theatre, part live-to-internet cooking show; "Ama and Chan" is a witty and savvy look at love, fusion-cuisine and an unplanned flatmate.

'Ama is a Ghanaian woman who likes Chinese food... a little bit. Chan is her Chinese husband who isn't afraid of wigs, curves or FuFu... much.

'They're social networking celebrity chefs. Their recipes for Asian-African fusion cuisine have gone viral. The traffic on their Facebook pages often causes a worldwide meltdown.

'After a mighty wedding and slew of In-Law bickering they've finally rented a place of their own. But where is their furniture? Where is the Pork Neck and who is the guy in the spare room?

'In this less-than-fabulous situation, they conjure up a plan to buy their dream house. But first they have to get rich. And even more famous. They get a camera, fusion recipes to die for and let YouTube do the rest.

'Ama and Chan invite you to the filming of their soon-to-be-popular Reality Cooking Show.'
