Sept 11 | 12P | State Street
As Netflix’s Queer Eye food and wine connoisseur, Antoni Porowski brings with him a lifelong passion for food and its power to bring people together. Meet him at our State Street bookstore in Macy’s Lower Level on Wednesday, September 11th @ 12:00pm.
Originally from Canada, Antoni was bitten by the culinary bug at a young age as he discovered the joy cooking brings from the likes of Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, Anthony Bourdain, and – most importantly – his own mother. A self-taught cook, Antoni went to work in restaurants from Montreal to New York City where he continued to hone his craft and find his place in the culinary world. 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, uniquely influenced his underlying culinary philosophy: food should tell a story and the heart and the stomach are inter-connected.
