Published: February 18, 2023

Glasgow-based chef, Julie Lin, will make her debut on Saturday Kitchen next month.

Co-owner of Gaga, Julie has made a few TV appearances over the years, most notably in Masterchef, as well as the Hairy Bikers Go Local and Food Fest, a new show that looks at the regions of the UK and explores why we eat what we do.

Food Fest started on Monday 6 February and is being shown on BBC Scotland and BBC One.

Julie announced her upcoming appearance on Saturday Kitchen online, writing about how this is a 'total dream'.

She said: "I will be talking all about my love of Malaysian culture and the food from my mumma’s and my homeland."

Saturday Kitchen has been running on Saturday mornings since 2002, and sees two guest chefs cook up meals alongside host Matt Tebutt, who also interviews a celebrity guest.

Drinks are provided by either Olly Smith or Helen McGinn, with clips of further recipes from chefs such as Nigella Lawson, Rick Stein, Keith Floyd and Marcus Waring from the BBC archives.
