What will happen if your favourite local artistes step into the kitchen to take on some of the well-known celebrity chefs in Malaysia? We have only one answer to that – expect chaos to break out!
Astro will be premiering its new cooking reality show this coming weekend, titled “Star vs Food Malaysia”. For those who don’t know, the show is based on the Indian reality programme of the same name.
In the series, each of the 10 artistes will be paired with one celebrity chef. They will explore the various recipes from the professionals themselves, apart from learning the necessary steps in preparing the local dishes in an interesting and fun way. “Star vs Food Malaysia” will air for 10 episodes featuring different celebrity pairings. Of course, chaos will definitely erupt, as the celebs struggle to hone their craft.
“Star vs Food Malaysia” will feature famous celebs such as Aliff Satar, Sherry Al-Hadad, Alicia Amin, Thanuja Ananthan, and also Joanne Kam, among others. They will be making their appearance alongside renowned celebrity chefs such as Dato’ Chef Fazley Yaakob, Dato’ Chef Ismail, and Chef Adu Amran.
Speaking about his experience working on the show, Bront Palarae remarked, “The experience of cooking ‘Tempoyak’ and ‘Gulai Daun Pucuk Paku’ was unparalleled, as I was on the knife’s edge this time unlike enjoying my meal in the restaurant. I was nervous but Chef Ismail’s passion encouraged me and helped my confidence grow.
The experienced actor added by saying, “I was nervous, but Chef Ismail’s passion encouraged me and helped my confidence grow. In the promo, you can see I was struggling to manually peel the coconut husk to get the grated coconut for dishes. The experience was priceless!”
“Star vs Food Malaysia” airs every weekend at 12pm starting this Saturday (16th April), on Astro Primetime (channel 704). You can also catch up on the show on Astro GO and On Demand.
