AS Program Board Presents… Cooking with Antoni Porowski on Friday, August 21, 2020, at 7 PM (PST). Join us for a night of cooking and conversation as Antoni answers your burning questions!
The event is free and is closed to GAUCHOS ONLY.
Be sure to register using your UCSB email address (ex: antoni@ucsb.edu OR antoni@umail.ucsb.edu, whichever works for you).
Antoni Porowski is a NYT Bestselling Author and Emmy winning star of Netflix’s hit series, “Queer Eye.” Born in Canada to Polish emigrants, Antoni discovered from a young age the joy cooking brings through television, and he currently brings that passion to “Queer Eye” as the show’s food and wine expert. A self-taught cook, Antoni worked in restaurants from Montreal to New York City, where he honed his craft. While in New York, Antoni found a 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, be it 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 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. Aside from “Queer Eye”, Antoni is currently developing a feature film for Netflix called “Girls and Boys” 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 People’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Sexiest Reality Star, Antoni continues to connect with audiences the world over.
