Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski became an overnight star when Netflix rebooted the series on it’s streaming platform in early 2018. Since then, he has become an icon in his own right but he wasn’t quite prepared for the responsibility of being a public figure in the limelight.
Antoni brings with him a lifelong passion for food and a history of catering private events in and around New York. Originally from Canada, Antoni was bitten by the culinary bug at a young age as he discovered the joy cooking brings from the likes of Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, Anthony Bourdain, and – most importantly – his own mother. A self-taught cook, Antoni went to work in restaurants from Montreal to New York City where he continued to hone his craft and find his place in the culinary world.
Since joining Netflix’s Fab Five, Antoni has brought this philosophy at a local-level to The Village Den, the Manhattan eatery where he is part owner, and across the country at speaking engagements among top Universities. His cookbook, Antoni in the Kitchen, was released in September.
