MasterChef Australia fave Adam Liaw has officially locked in a brand new (and MASSIVE) show with SBS for 2021.
SBS announced the show on Wednesday along with a slew of fresh and returning titles, including Asia Updated with Diana Chan, Going Places with Ernie Dingo, and Living Black.
Liaw first burst onto the food scene after winning MasterChef Australia season 2, beating sweet boy Callum Hann. He’s since published a handful of books, sassy tweets, and is a Good Food columnist.
Zinger tweet incoming.

He also co-hosted the travel cooking show Destination Flavour, which you can find on SBS On Demand.
Liaw’s brand new gig show is called The Cook Up and SBS has already locked in – wait for it – 200 whole episodes. Two hundred. Maybe Netflix has ruined the life expectancy of shows for me, but 200 episodes feels like so much.
This is neither here nor there, but I swear I spied Japanese curry in that promo and my mouth just watered.
Anyway, the episodes will air every weeknight at 7pm on SBS Food, and feature a slew of guests. Think Aussie chefs like Colin Fassnidge and TV personalities.
“I can’t wait to welcome you and my special guests into my kitchen every night,” Liaw said.
We don’t have an exact release date for the show just yet, but you can expect to see it on screens sometime next year.
In the meantime, Liaw just announced another cooking show called Roadtrip for Good.
He’s a busy man, what can I say?
“We’ve had a tough year but before COVID regional Australia was already battling fire and drought,” Liaw tweeted about the series.
“Roadtrip for Good is about giving back to those communities.”
Adam Liaw’s Roadtrip for Good premieres 8.30pm, December 2 on SBS Food.
Can’t wait to cry!
As for other bites-related shows coming to SBS next year, keep your eyes peeled for Plat du Tour with Guillaume Brahimi, NITV’s Strait to the Plate hosted by Aaron Fa’aoso, and A Girl’s Guide to Hunting, Fishing, and Wild Cooking with Tassie chef Analiese Gregory.
That last one sounds quite intense, not gonna lie.
