MEMORY LANE: Vision Group holds Father's Day Cook Off

Happening at the Vision Group headquarters, the day before Father’s Day (on Saturday), participants agreed that the event was not only unique but also a delightful experience for their families.

Back in 2017, as part of Father's Day celebrations, Vision Group organised a cook-off in which they pitted cooking pairs of dads and their children against each other. Today, we revisit the memorable event to remind you of the fun that is Father's Day.

Who thought a high-profile male politician could really cook? It was always going to be a big debate. But the Kabweri County MP, Francis Gonahasa, proved that he was not just a good legislator in the august House; he also has enviable culinary skills. He defied the odds when he and his son Emma, emerged winners at the Sunday Vision debut cook-off competition.

If anything, he said it was a walk in the park. Preparing the best ready dish of the day came off so easily for the duo. It turned out they were a cooking family.

Memories were made for a lifetime


"Since we had to cook in the shortest of time, we decided to cook the simplest and quick food, potatoes and chicken," he said.

The participants were selected from a pool of stories sent to Sunday Vision about special moments they shared with their fathers.


He attributed the victory to his son, whom he said was passionate about cooking.

Above all, he said, it was the fun time for father and son to bond.

"It was a get-together moment for different families, parents and children," Noor Panjwani, who participated with his seven-year-old daughter, Ziana, said.

The Judges, Rogers Balamaga, Mark Kaheeru and Esther Namugoji enjoyed the experience.


"I thought the 30 minutes were too few to prepare a meal, however, that was the challenge that made it exciting. And indeed, we managed to pull it off," he relayed.
