Antoni Porowski is a Polish-Canadian reality TV personality, actor, chef and model. He is known for his role as the food and wine expert on the Emmy award-winning Netflix series Queer Eye.
Porowski was born in Montreal, Quebec to Polish parents after they immigrated to Canada with his two older sisters. He grew up speaking Polish, English, and French. He and his parents moved to Glade Springs, West Virginia when he was 12, and he lived between there and Montreal throughout his high school years before finally returning to Montreal to attend Marianopolis College and then university.
Post-graduation from Concordia University with a Bachelor's degree in Creative Arts, Porowski moved to New York City to study acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre, from which he graduated in 2011. He taught himself to cook by referring to his grandmother's cooking techniques.
Upon moving to New York City, Porowski began auditioning for various acting roles. He cites that being Polish made it difficult for him to find work, which at the time made him consider anglicizing his last name. He has landed roles in movies such as Elliot Loves (2012), Daddy's Boy (2016), The Pretenders (2018), 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.
In the meantime, he worked in food service to cover his rent, first working as a busboy at a family-run Polish restaurant. He worked his way up in the restaurant industry, working as a waiter and sommelier, eventually managing BondSt sushi restaurant. Porowski lives in the same neighborhood as Ted Allen, the original Queer Eye food and wine expert and current host of Food Network cooking competition Chopped. The two became friends, and for a time Porowski worked for Allen as a personal chef.
In December 2017, it was announced that Porowski would play the role of food and wine expert in the Netflix revival of Queer Eye, which aired in February 2018. The second season of the show was released in June 2018.
In April 2018, Porowski signed a deal with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for his first cookbook, to be released in Spring 2019. In June 2018, he announced that he would be opening The Village Den, a fast-casual restaurant in New York City's West Village.
Additionally, Porowski deals vintage furniture. On September 10, 2018, Antoni alongside co-hosts of Queer Eye received an Emmy for Outstanding Structured Reality Program
