Antoni Porowski        

Chef, Model & TV Personality, Known for Netflix's "Queer Eye"

Antoni Porowski is a chef, actor, model and television personality, known for being the food & wine connoisseur on Netflix's Queer Eye.

At a young age Antoni was bitten by the culinary bug, spending countless hours in the kitchen watching his mother cooking and bringing a world of culinary delights to life. He discovered the worlds of Julia Child, Jacque Pepin and Anthony Bourdain, and soon 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 find 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. This 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 New York and Brooklyn’s most 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.

In December of 2017, it was announced that Porowski would be one of five men in the Netflix revival of Queer Eye. The show premiered in February 2018, with the second season of the show following shortly after in June 2018. On September 10, 2018, Antoni and his Queer Eye co-hosts received the Emmy for Outstanding Structured Reality Program. Following the success of the first two seasons, the third season of Queer Eye released on Netflix in 2019.

In April 2018, Antoni signed a deal with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to publish his first cookbook, Antoni in the Kitchen, which was released in 2019. He also opened The Village Den, a fast-casual restaurant in New York City's West Village in 2019.
