Adam Liaw

Celebrity Chef Adam Liaw will be taking to The Kitchen Stage at Maitland Taste to share his insight, ideas and culinary experience with you. 

Adam Liaw understands how Australian families eat.

As the author of six cookbooks, a weekly newspaper columnist and a television host, his approachable and family friendly recipes are influenced by his global travels, but remains focused on the casual simplicity of modern Australian home cooking.

Born in Malaysia to an English-Singaporean mother and Hainanese Chinese father, Adam’s family lived in several countries through his youth and his culinary influences are far-reaching.

He was an active cook from an early age, regularly cooking for his parents and seven brothers and sisters since he was eight years old.

His love affair with food and cooking blossomed during his time working in Japan and he returned to Australia in 2009 to compete in MasterChef.

In July 2010 over 5 million people tuned in to watch him win the second series MasterChef.

His award-winning SBS Australia television series Destination Flavour is in its 6th season, exploring the ways in which food and culture relate around the world.

In 2016 the Japanese government appointed Adam as an official Goodwill Ambassador for Japanese Cuisine and he is Unicef Ambassador for Nutrition.

Adam is very active on social media, and you can follow him on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
