Meet Poh Ling Yeow, artist ingénue and now TV personality chef with a passion for unique, experimental flavours that taste great! Join Poh and her chef friends on TLC’s brand new series POH’S KITCHEN as she whips up original recipes, and explores the culture and tradition behind some of the world's favourite dishes.

POH’S KITCHEN premieres every Monday at 1900 hrs (7:00 pm SIN/HK). Encores the following Mondays at 1300 hrs (1:00 pm SIN/HK).
Poh Ling Yeow was born in Malaysia and she spent much of her childhood in Kuala Lumpur. Her family then migrated to South Australia, where she now lives and works.
For Poh, cooking is all about nurturing and sharing, and she loves inviting friends into her kitchen to play, experiment, and help her refine her unique cooking style. Catch the enigmatic Poh as she injects a personal twist into some of the world’s most popular dishes, and exchanges recipes and tips with famous chefs such as Neil Perry, David Thompson, and Emmanuel Mollois.
Poh has always sought to explore notions of belonging and origin, and her interest in cooking sparked her desire to reconcile her heritage with her Western identity. Later in the series, Poh heads off overseas - to Malaysia on a three week trip to find out more about her lineage and the traditional dishes that come from Malaysia.
With a pinch of curiosity, a splash of audacity, and a whole lot of laughter on the side, step into POH’S KITCHEN and awaken your tastebuds to a plethora of flavours and ideas.
