'Masterchef' judge John Torode has a new series starting on UKTV's Good Food channel. It sees Torode celebrate the "vibrant and varied cuisine" of Malaysia.

Torode previously presented a similar series focussing on Australian cuisine.

The Malaysian series will feature Torode cooking with local chefs, meeting celebrity restaurateurs and visiting colourful night markets. He will also explore how Malaysian cuisine has evolved over the years, and the effect that historical and cultural changes have had on it.

In segments filmed in the UK, he will reimagine Malaysian cuisine inspired by his journey, and create recipes for viewers to try at home.

The series will be produced in association with Matrade, the national trade promotion agency of Malaysia.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Matrade again on this fresh new look at Malaysian cuisine," said Kate Norum, UKTV's commercial partnerships manager.

"We're looking forward to collaborating with them, creating some fantastic original content and helping to further amplify their Malaysian Kitchen initiative."

Khairul Nizam Moonier, Matrade's trade commissioner, added: "Matrade is proud to be showcasing the very best of Malaysian cuisine with this in-depth exploration by John Torode. His passion for our country is infectious and we are excited to see the effect it has on the UK public embracing Malaysian cuisine as one of the fastest rising food trends."
