About Antoni Porowski
Antoni Porowski is the Queer Eye food & wine connoisseur. At a young age Antoni was bitten by the culinary bug spending countless hours in the kitchen watching his mother joyously cooking and bringing a world of culinary delights to life. He discovered the worlds of Julia Child, Jacque Pepin and Anthony Bourdain, and soon after began to teach himself how to cook. Self taught, Antoni put himself through University where he received a degree in psychology, but his love of food soon brought him back to the kitchen. He immediately went to work in restaurants from Montreal to New York City, continuing to hone his craft and finding his place in the culinary world.
In New York, Antoni met with the original Fab Five food and wine expert Ted Allen and began a mentorship which quickly turned into him becoming Ted’s personal chef. The relationship helped launch Antoni’s career and he became the personal chef to some of the upper echelons of New York and Brooklyn’s prominent citizens. The President of Barclays Stadium and the Chief Curator of MOMA are two of his biggest fans as is the founder of Tasting Table, who hired Antoni to host segments on the renowned cooking site. Those experiences and his degree in psychology influenced his underlying philosophy; food should tell a story and the heart and the stomach are inter-connected.
