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 Porowski 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, Porowski 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, Porowski 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 Porowski'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 Porowski 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.

He has landed roles in movies such as Elliot Loves, Daddy's Boy, The Pretenders, and as the lead officer in a 2014 episode of TV series "The Blacklist". Porowski was also featured in the 2015 short docudrama about the Vinnytsia massacre, To My Father, as Adam Bandrowski. The short film was part of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner.

His big break came when he joined the Fab Five as the food and wine expert on the Netflix revival of "Queer Eye" in 2018. The show has won multiple Emmy Awards, including two for Outstanding Structured Reality Program.

His first cookbook, Antoni in the Kitchen, was released in 2019. He also opened The Village Den, a fast-casual restaurant in New York City's West Village in 2019.
