Veteran broadcaster Robert Chua Wah-peng is peddling his wares - literally - with the Naked Chef herself.

After reading about Flora Cheung Ching-sze, the nude host of a new alternative cooking show on pay television, Chua became concerned.

'I think she needs better cookware,' Chua said. 'Her kitchen equipment looked too inadequate.'

Cheung will debut this month on the adult channels of Now TV, Hong Kong Broadband Network and TVB Pay Vision to demonstrate the fine art of Cantonese cooking, in the nude.

To get her better equipped, so to speak, Chua has volunteered to be her sponsor and supply her with proper woks and pans sold on his cookware website.

'I am grateful,' said Cheung (pictured with Chua's special pans). 'They are non-stick and easy to handle. And he told me they are healthier because they are not Teflon and have none of the bad cancer-causing chemicals that are released under high heat.'

That's exactly how Chua advertised his 'nano-ceramic' cookware.

Now that the two are singing the same tune, will Flora be invited as a guest cook to Chua's Health & Lifestyle Channel on Cable TV?

'That may be difficult; it's a family channel,' Chua said.

Too bad. But besides her cooking show, you can also watch Cheung in a cameo in the upcoming 3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy.
