In the next year, Poh is determined to: create an edible garden as the first step in transforming her suburban house into a home; seek out inspiration and advice so she can become an even better cook, artist, and book publisher (watch out friend Andre Ursini and mum Christina, in particular); and continue to develop her small business as a purveyor of home-cooked delicacies alongside hubby Jono, best friend Sarah and Sarah’s husband Matt, who just happens to be Poh’s ex-husband!

Poh generously allows others to observe this “work in progress” via Poh & Co. (Although her disarming honesty and openness, and the access-all-areas approach of the series, means that perhaps it is more accurate to use the phrase “life in progress”.)

Poh is charming, warm and both ordinary and extraordinary. She loves people and also wants to increase the meaningful engagement she has with her big network of gorgeous friends and family, all of whom are eager to play a part in her food adventures – and experience first-hand the benefits of her explosive and infectious laugh!

Poh was a finalist in the inaugural series of MasterChef Australia and has hosted three seasons of Poh’s Kitchen and published two cookbooks. She and her recipes are already in the hearts and kitchens of food lovers everywhere. In Poh & Co., she throws open the doors of her home and welcomes in existing fans and newcomers alike.
