Just mention her name and most food lovers confess a crush for celebrity chef Poh Ling Yeow.
It seems she has stolen many hearts and I can tell you that she’s just as lovely in person as she seems on television.
Poh’s food career started back in 2009 with the first season of Ten’s MasterChef Australia. Since then she’s gone on to her own cooking show, Poh’s Kitchen and lately with a new series Poh & Co where she trips around the country.
But she’s also an actor, an artist and an author with several cookbooks under her name.
Her latest project is a small café called Jam Face which is crammed into an aisle in the Adelaide Central Markets.
It’s a crazily crowded venue and you have to squeeze between tables to reach the seats at the back, which are of course the only ones that are likely to be vacant, but people do, and I did to ask Poh about what gets her out of bed each day.
It was a great chat about food and cooking with this modest chef. My only regret? I forgot to ask about her Scottie dogs Rhino and Tim. That will have to wait until next time.
Here’s half an hour with Poh and there's more photos from Jamface to browse below while you listen to the podcast.
