Asia Unplated with Diana Chan

Winner of MasterChef Australia season 9 (2017), Diana Chan, has a new cooking show premiering on SBS Food (channel 33) on Thursday, December 19, 2019, at 8pm and continuing every Thursday night for the next 9 weeks. In Asia Unplated with Diana Chan, Diana will explore the fresh, aromatic flavours of Asia, from the vibrant and healthy flavours of Vietnamese cooking, to learning to strike the balance of salty, sweet and sour in Thai food, and cooking a local Singaporean delicacy with mixed Indian and Chinese influences.
Each episode, in the 10-part series, will focus on a different cuisine in Asia, showcasing a variety of traditional and modern dishes from each country. Along the way, we join Diana as she explores the local shops, restaurants and markets, providing tips and advice for sourcing ingredients for each dish. Then it’s back to the kitchen where Diana cooks up simple but authentic, home-style Asian dishes.
She also invites special guests, friends and passionate foodies, like Gary Mehigan, Sarah Todd, Adam D’Sylva and Karlie Verkerk among others, into the kitchen to show us their favourite recipes and chat about the unique cooking styles and rich food histories of their favourite Asian cuisines.
