Liaw appeared in Destination Flavour with Renee Lim and Lily Serna last year.
In the new series Liaw will take food lovers on a journey of discovery along the entire length of Japan. He will visit farmers, fishermen, Michelin-starred chefs and passionate home cooks to reveal the heart of Japanese food and lifestyle – from its ancient dishes and traditions to the bright lights of Tokyo, one of the world’s greatest food cities.
“I honestly get really excited just thinking about all the things we’ll be doing in this series. It’s an honour to be given the opportunity to show people around one of the world’s truly great food destinations; a country where I lived for so long and that is so close to my heart. We’ll be able to see and share with everyone some very unique stories, and really get to know the cuisine, the culture, and the people of Japan,” he said.
It will air on SBS ONE later this year.
