Antoni Porowski is a New York Times Bestselling Author and 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. Born in Canada to Polish emigrants, Antoni discovered from a young age the joy cooking brings through television, 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. 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, informed his view that food has the power to connect and inspire.

Antoni brings this philosophy wherever he goes, whether on or off camera. His cookbook, “Antoni in the Kitchen” was released in Fall 2019, landing at #2 on the New York Times’ Best Seller List. He can currently be seen in Netflix’s Emmy award-winning series “Queer Eye” for which it has won “Outstanding Structured Reality Program” and “Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program” two consecutive years running. Antoni is also developing a feature film entitled Girls and Boys for Netflix with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. The feature is loosely based on Antoni’s real-life dating experiences as a sexually fluid man.

Antoni has graced the covers of Gay Times, Out Magazine, Attitude Magazine, and Entertainment Weekly, where he and his fellow Fab Five were listed among 2018’s Entertainers of the Year. A finalist for People’s Choice Reality TV Star of 2019 and winner of Eater’s 2018 #Brand of the Year and People’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Sexiest Reality Star, Antoni continues to connect with audiences the world over.
