After making 3 series of Poh’s Kitchen for the ABC, runner-up of the inaugural series of MasterChef Australia, Poh Ling Yeow has found a new home at SBS. Her new 6-part series called Poh & Co. will premiere on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 8pm on SBS ONE.
In this unique series, Poh shares her chaotic life by giving us a glimpse of her fascinating world of business pursuits, artistic dreams and fun adventures with family and friends. Also watch out for appearances by her pal and cooking confidant Andre Ursini, another MasterChef Australia alumni from season one who now runs his own Andre’s Cucina & Polenta Bar in Adelaide and one of the most successful contestants to ever come out of MasterChef Australia in terms of actually working in the food industry.
