Adam Liaw


Motivational, Business, Lifestyle | Food & Wine

Instantly recognisable with his warm smile and topknot, 36-year-old SBS ‘Destination Flavour’ host and ‘MasterChef’ series 2 winner Adam Liaw has carved out a niche for himself as one of Australia’s favourite new cooks and commentators. His talent for creating Asian-inspired dishes with clean, fresh flavours also translates to print, and his best-selling 2010 cookbook, Two Asian Kitchens, was called ‘thoughtful and beautiful’ by The Sydney Morning Herald.

Critics and fans have also loved his second book, Asian After Work and 3rd book Adam’s Big Pot, with great reviews and strong sales. Articulate and witty, Adam always brings his own unique perspective to everything he does. His popular food and culture column for The Wall Street Journal’s Scene Asia gives him yet another outlet to express himself. His sense of humour and regular musings on Twitter won him a spot on PopSugar’s list of ‘Top-20 most entertaining celebrities to follow in 2012’.
