Antoni Porowski is a New York Times Bestselling Author and an Emmy Award Winning star of Netflix’s hit series “Queer Eye.” As the show’s food and wine expert, Antoni brings with him a lifelong passion for food that has influenced his culinary philosophy: food should tell a story, and the heart and the stomach are inter-connected. Born in Canada to Polish emigrants, Antoni’s passion was ignited from a young age as he discovered the joy cooking brings from the likes of Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, and Anthony Bourdain. A self-taught cook, Antoni went on to work in restaurants from Montreal to New York City where he continued to hone his craft and establish his place in the culinary world. While in New York, Antoni found an inspired mentor in the original Fab Five food and wine expert Ted Allen. His work with Allen, combined with his university degree in psychology, has informed his view that food has the power to connect and inspire.
