Poh’s Kitchen Lends a Hand

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 8pm, ABC1 Tonight is the fi­nal episode in what has been a be­guil­ing se­ries. Poh Ling Yeow, who won the hearts of Aus­tralia as run­ner-up on MasterChef a while ago when that se­ries was a stair­way to heaven for Aus­tralia’s am­a­teur cooks, takes to re­al­ity TV. She has brought an emo­tion­ally charged twist to her al­ready con­sid­er­able culi­nary jour­ney, jump­ing in to of­fer her skills to peo­ple us­ing cook­ing to help, in­spire and change lives. Tonight’s episode is af­fect­ing TV when she works with the Cam­bo­dian Chil­dren’s Fund in Phnom Penh’s no­to­ri­ous garbage dump Ste­ung Meanchey. CCF — cre­ated by Aus­tralian Scott Nee­son — ed­u­cates, pro­vides community ser­vices for and feeds more than 1200 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies. Food is in­te­gral to CCF, as is Madolin, a Cam­bo­dian chef who helped Nee­son de­velop the char­ity’s food pro­gram. Poh works with Madolin on a project that en­ables the kids of the dump to cre­ate a sur­prise for their bene­fac­tor.
