Masterchef Australia – Adam Liaw Gets His Own TV Show

Season two winner of Masterchef Adam Liaw has now got at TV show which will be shown on SBS later this year.

Adam is currently filming the travel/food show called Destination Flavour.

The show will be co-hosted by Renee Lim and Lily Serna.

The Telegraph reports Adam has had previous TV show offers.

They write:

Destination Flavour comes after almost two years of negotiations between Liaw and various networks.

The MasterChef winner admitted he considered several offers before reaching an agreement with SBS.

“There were a lot of shows that were considered but mostly they were just not right for me,” Liaw told Confidential yesterday.

“It mostly had to do with subject matter that really interested me.

“I’ve always thought SBS do amazing stuff with their food programming, shows like Luke Nguyen’s (Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam, Peter Kuruvita (Chef In Action) and Food Safari.

“I really like their approach to food and that the focus is on food and not just knocking stuff together.”

Liaw’s move into broadcasting puts the Sydneysider among the show’s most commercially successful contestants post-MasterChef, joining fellow TV recruits Julie Goodwin, Poh Ling Yeow, Marion Grasby andJustine Schofield.

Meanwhile, Liaw is also busy preparing to open his first restaurant – a Japanese-inspired eatery – in Sydney and is set to release his second book following the huge success of his first tome Two Asian Kitchens.

SBS do these shows well so will definitely be tuning in.

Well, I’m excited! I think Adam proved himself to be a lovely man & full of integrity. & Lily Serna is delightful- I love Letters & Numbers, I think this show will be better than the average foodie show!!!

I didn’t much care for Poh’s show, although it was many times better than the embarrassing attempts by Julie and Justine.

I’m pretty sure that Adam will run rings around them all. Looking forward to it!
