The only problem is…she can’t cook!. Missing the food and comfort of his old life, Ken accepts his ex-wife’s invitation to dinner, unaware of the delicacies she plans to serve… Debbie Isitt’s original take on the love triangle scenario devilishly blends black humour with seasoning and a little dash of sauce.
