Are you watching this? Poh´s kitchen is on tonight!

For your information (if you are not in Oz land, that is), Poh Ling Yeow was the runner up of last year hugely popular reality cooking show, Master Chef. She will return on Australian TV for a cooking show, where she travels around the country and tries out different recipes.

Some people find cooking quite stressful and a boring chore to be avoided at all
costs – Poh is not one of those people! For Poh, cooking is all about nurturing
and sharing, and she loves inviting new friends into her kitchen to play,
experiment and help her refine her unique cooking style. An artist by trade, Poh
is only a recent convert to cooking but she´s taken to it like a duck to water,
using her great natural aptitude and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

Quote from ABC online
First confession. I did not watch Master Chef attentively last year. A certain judge annoyed me to no end (I did not expect to see him everywhere after the show, even in real life at the airport!). But I did watch bits and pieces, and the person that stands out for me (in terms of her “playfulness” with food) is defenitely Poh.
Second confession. I think Poh will bring a sexy sophisticated female touch to Australian food shows. It is about time, really. I absolutely adore Maggie Beer, have a half interest in Kylie Wong and do not care much about other Australian TV female chefs/cook. Poh always looks adorable, fashionable and very sexy. A beautiful lady with an attitude to food and cooking. Now, let´s pray that she also has a good TV personality to complete the package.
The question is, what to expect? Frankly, I am not sure. The show has been marketed to be thrilling, with lots excitements as Poh experiments different recipes and cooking methods. But, Poh is no Heston Blumenthal with his quest for perfection which I find interesting. Jamie´s America is ok to watch, although I do fall asleep here or there. My big question at the moment is whether the show producers can capture and show the excitement of cooking to us audience. Without a particular theme (at the moment) or a competitive premise, this is not an easy task.
Having said that, I love “The cook and the chef“, which Poh´s kitchen is replacing. However, “the cook and the chef” has a clearer theme. And to be frank, Maggie and Simon´s down to Earth personalities and non-pretentious cooking are such a pleasure to watch.
So Poh, bring it on!
Poh´s kitchen is on ABC1 at 6.30pm Wed.
(I won´t reach home at that time due to work. But I will stream the show later).

    I've read so much about Master Chef in Australia and wish I could watch, too! In fact, while we were visiting my family in Manila, I loved getting back to the hotel to watch Asian Food Channel. Just discovering how many shows we are missing in the US!!

    I wish I could see this and judge for myself – but the tax on my bandwidth for My Kitchen Rules, which I am inexplicably watching, is already too much!
