Adam Liaw, one of Australia's favourite cooks, authors, presenters and social media influencers, gives an insight into his connection with Japan and his career since he gave up his job as a corporate lawyer to enter (and eventually win!) MasterChef 2010.

AdamLiawSince then he has published four best-selling cookbooks, with a fifth - The Zen Kitchen -out in October. He has presented three countries - including Japan – in his SBS series, Destination Flavour, and developed a career as a food writer and commentator.

As well as Japan, influences on Adam's cooking are from his family background - English-Singaporean and Hainanese Chinese - and his experience cooking for his family since the age of eight!

Born in Malaysia and raised in Adelaide, Adam holds university degrees in science and law and practiced law for 11 years, most recently as the Head of Legal and Business Affairs for Disney Interactive, Asia Pacific, based in Tokyo. His love affair with food and cooking blossomed during this time. In July 2010 over 5 million people tuned in to watch him win the second series MasterChef
