Once you’ve navigated around the various delectable zones at the Show, head to the free, live cooking demonstrations at the NEFF Cooking Theatre where some of Australasia’s top culinary talent will be sharing their secret recipes and hot cooking tips.

This year, one of MasterChef Australia’s contestants, guests, Judge and co-host, Poh, will be appearing on stage. As a fifth-generation Chinese Malaysian, Poh’s interest in food came from her wanting to reconcile her heritage with western culture. In 2009 she shot to stardom when she was runner-up in the first ever series of MasterChef Australia. Her unique culinary creations and warm, affable personality endeared her to viewers, catapulting her into the public eye as a household name.

Since her breakthrough on MasterChef Australia, Poh has emerged as a prominent figure in the Australian culinary landscape and has regularly appeared on our television screens. She has authored five cookbooks, hosted her own TV series, and collaborated with various renowned chefs. In 2019, Poh returned to the MasterChef Australia family as a mentor and in 2020, she was a contestant on MasterChef Australia: Back to Win, placing sixth overall. In a full circle moment, Poh joined MasterChef Australia Season 16 as a judge in 2024.

Poh is joining an incredible line-up including Josh Emmett, Tina Duncan, Vaughan Mabee, Annabelle White and Samir Allen, to name a few.

Whether you’re a foodie aficionado, wine enthusiast, or someone who loves discovering new things to eat, there’s something to satisfy every taste bud at The Food Show.
