With celebrity friends, culinary icons and riveting conversation, the new season of The Cook Up with Adam Liaw is exactly the kind of food delivery your home needs: a delightful half hour of cooking and entertainment with a side of laughs.

Every weeknight, two foodie friends join Adam. Chefs, comedians, authors, journalists, singers, actors, sports personalities and everything in between: if they love food and a chat, Adam welcomes them into The Cook Up kitchen. This season sees more famous faces from the world of food and entertainment at the benchtop. Guests include tennis star Priscilla Hon, Dr Michael Mosley, Rachel Ward, Eddie Perfect, Lincoln Younes, Art Simone, Nikki Britton, Dr Tyson Yunkaporta, Dave Lawson, Christie Whelan Browne, Mahmoud Ismail, Jamie Durie, Clare Bowditch, Bert La Bonte, Joe White, Ann Reardon and Ashley Vola.

This series sees the first kids’ episode of The Cook Up with two future food stars cooking in the kitchen. We also see Adam cook alongside some of Australia’s finest established and upcoming chefs and have fascinating discussions with the most interesting personalities from all around the country.

Of course, just like in any good kitchen, some old friends have been welcomed back to carry on the cooking and conversation, such as Joel Bennetts, Yumi Stynes and Julia Busuttil Nishimura.

Friday nights on The Cook Up feature inspirational ideas that will have everyone asking for the recipe with Easy Entertainment. Guests on Easy Entertaining include Tasting Australia Festival Director Karena Armstrong, Eddie Perfect and Ashley Vola. Adam also hosts an Eid al-Fitr Easy Entertaining episode featuring Racha Abou Alchamat and Engku Putri Irna Mysara.

This season, The Cook Up once again celebrates Refugee Week by featuring talented top chefs and guests sharing their stories and experiences. Adam is joined by recently retired AFLW star Akec Makur Chuot, comedian Joe White, UNHCR technology guru Zoe Ghani, refugee advocate Asif Sultani, and inspiring entrepreneur Anyier Yuol, and more.

Presenter, Adam Liaw, says

“This season of The Cook Up is our biggest and best yet. We’ve got stars of stage and screen like Rachel Ward, Lincoln Younes, Christie Whelan Browne, and Eddie Perfect. International megastars like Michael Mosley, Martin Yan and Ievgen Klopotenko. There’s hit dishes from Australia’s cult restaurants like Porkfat, Etta, Byron Bay’s Bar Heather and Chae (where the waitlist is 8 years long!) and all the great conversations that people have come to expect from The Cook Up.

I have fans of the show come up to me every single day telling me how they never miss an episode, and I know they’re going love this season as much as I do.”

Emily Griggs, SBS Head of Food, says

The Cook Up has firmly established itself as the ultimate destination for delectable recipes and engaging conversation, boasting over 250 new recipes this season to inspire our SBS viewers’ kitchens. Personally, I highly value the ‘Easy Entertaining’ episodes airing every Friday, offering a simple guide to hosting events. Relieve your entertaining stress by following three meticulously crafted recipes tailored for the same event.

Whether you’re planning a sophisticated canapé and cocktail party, a charming French Provincial Picnic, or a flavourful Eid al-Fitr Feast to celebrate the end of Ramadan, The Cook Up caters to everyone’s tastes. With ideas and recipes for both everyday meals and special events, The Cook Up stands as your ultimate culinary companion.”

An internal SBS production, The Cook Up will be available to stream on SBS On Demand with subtitling available in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Arabic, Vietnamese and Korean afterwards.

The Cook Up on SBS Food – with Adam Liaw season six will premiere weekdays on SBS On Demand from Monday February 26 and at 7pm weeknights on SBS Food. All episodes from previous series of The Cook Up are available to stream on SBS On Demand.
