Johannesburg - Adam Liaw will be in South Africa in September.

South African audiences saw Liaw crowned the winner of MasterChef Australia on M-Net on Thursday, and fans will now have the opportunity to see him in action at the Good Food and Wine Show in Johannesburg from 22 - 25 September.

Liaw will also participate in the BBC Lifestyle Theatre where ticketholders can cook along with him.

On winning the title, Liaw said: "It was extraordinary. I don't think I've ever been as happy! To all the viewers, the biggest thank you in the world. It's a great feeling to know that there have been literally millions of people cheering me on."

    How crass are DSTV/MNet the flighted 2 adverts in the 2 following programs advising who won Masterchef - this is downright stupid as I always record it and view later at night - so watching the 2 following programs all was revealed - stupid stupid MNet

      Stront man. Adam was always going to beat Callum.

      Wow. So MNET / Multichoice must change their advertising and scheduling because you watch masterchef later than every other person??? Isn't it your responsibility since you made the decision to record it?

    Wow? We just watched the finals of Masterchef Australia two weeks ago (we live in Melbourne)... And this guy (Adam Liaw) was one of the chefs who made "guest appearences" on the show - he has done very well for himself.... Don't worry... I won't tell who won the "new" one... But I can say it was awesome :)

      Hi Amda! Yes, looking forward to watching 2011 Masterchef next year. My very undomesticated 18 yr old daughter loves it too and has been inspired to try some recipes ... if only she will clean up afterwards (sigh).
