YOU have seen her battling it out and emerging as the runner-up in the competitive MasterChef Australia in 2009 and subsequently in her own cooking show — Poh’s Kitchen — from 2010 to 2012.
Now you can taste Poh Ling Yeow’s own recipe aboard a Malaysian Airlines (MAS) flight.
The national carrier has enlisted the artist, actress and celebrity chef to come up with a signature dish that will be offered on its Australia-Malaysia route.
Come Dec 1, Poh’s Nyonya chicken curry will be served in the business and economy classes from Australia to Malaysia (http://www.goodfood.com.au/good-food/food-news/poh-ling-yeow-to-cook-for-malaysia-airlines-20141104-11gfvp.html).
During a launch in Sydney recently, the Malaysian-born Australian professed having fond memories of travel and home, and that MAS was the airline she grew up flying.
Previously, the airline has collaborated with Irish Michelin star chef Richard Corrigan and French chef Amandine Chaignot to create signature dishes on other routes.
Wonder if the airline would bring in someone to create a winning recipe for its nasi lemak, which is supposed to be one of Malaysia’s national dishes (see the complaint made by our own Chef Wan earlier this year — http://english.astroawani.com/news/show/malaysia-airlines-responds-to-chef-wans-comments-on-nasi-lemak-telanjang-29309).
That would really be something to write home about.
