MasterChef stars Adam Liaw and Poh Ling Yeow launch a new cooking show as they travel across Australia in search of Australia’s national dish.
Adam Liaw and Poh Ling Yeow have teamed up again for SBS’s new big TV project, Great Australian Bites.
The dream team was reunited after their smash hit in Malaysia in Australia, which was released in 2021, reported yahoo lifestyle on Friday.
After becoming fast friends over a decade ago when they competed on back-to-back seasons of MasterChef, celebrity chefs are on the hunt for local cuisine.
‘The premise is very simple: what is Australia’s national dish?’ Adam, 44, he said.
“We think about other countries and other cuisines and forget that Australian cuisine is amazing, first of all, and also completely unique.”

The Malaysian-born cook went on to say that he and Poh, 49, intend to travel the country and try a wide variety of dishes as they try to define Australian cuisine.
“We talk about kebabs, we talk about spaghetti bolognese, we talk about roast lamb: we are looking at the everyday food that ordinary people prepare every day.”
Adam said he’s also incredibly excited to be working with his dear friend Poh once again, as they “get along so well” during filming.

“This is the first time Poh and I have been on camera together, so making this series has been a lot of fun,” Adam said in a statement at the time.
“It is also a valuable opportunity to highlight the connections between Australia and Malaysia, two nations that share a long history and are very special to each other.”
Meanwhile, Poh said she was excited to mix the best of Australian produce and Malaysian flavours.
“We have great products right here in our own backyard, but what always amazes me is how even the smallest places can create delicious experiences.”
