Antoni in the Kitchen (Hardcover)
*One of Food & Wine’s Essential New Cookbooks for Fall*
*One of Eater's Best Fall Cookbooks 2019*
*One of Amazon's Best Cookbooks for Fall 2020*
"Antoni has a love of food equal to my own. From his Johnny's Queso Blanco (you can never go wrong with melted cheese) to his Polish Hangover Soup (I'm sure this will come in very handy) and all of his desserts, I can't wait to explore the mind and creativity of this extremely hot chef."
Antoni Porowski, the food and wine guru on Netflix's sensation Queer Eye, meets people where they live—literally. With appealing vulnerability, he shows cooks of all levels how to become more confident and casual in the kitchen. The verve and naturalness of his approach earned raves from Food & Wine and Bon Appétit to GQ and the New York Times, which noted his dishes prove that “sometimes simple is anything but simplistic.”
Some of the recipes in this book are weeknight healthyish meals, while others are perfect for off-the-cuff entertaining. Visual stunners, they’re often composed of fewer than five ingredients. Whether Bastardized Easy Ramen; Malaysian Chili Shrimp; Roasted Carrots with Carrot-Top Pesto; or Salty Lemon Squares, all are visual stunners and can be carried off with panache, even by beginners.
About the Author
"Full of enthusiasm, warmth, and joy. From the simplest radishes in pink-peppercorn butter to a classic grilled cheese with tomato bisque to an innovative turkey kefte, the book shows a knowledge of techniques and an intrepid spirit in the kitchen."
"Antoni's enthusiasm for food is infectious. Approachable and easy, these recipes will inspire anyone to get into the kitchen."
"Antoni's culinary skills are prodigious, but what makes him special is the key ingredient that makes Queer Eye special: heart."

—Gail Simmons, food expert, TV host, and author of Bringing It Home
"The cook, the book, the recipes—Charmers all! From soups and stews that take us back to his Polish childhood to of-the-moment diragus with oozy eggs, marinated watermelon bites, or an olive oil Bundt cake with pecan streusel, Antoni brings warmth, style, and a very personal take to easy, simple foods made to share."
—Dorie Greenspan, author of Everyday Dorie
"Playful with a hit of sophistication, Antoni in the Kitchen is the next best thing to getting a full-on Queer Eye cooking makeover."
—Christina Tosi, chef-owner of Milk Bar
"Cooking's highest power is to make us feel connected. Antoni reminds us of this on screen, and now on the page. I can't wait to cook so many of the things in these pages, starting with the meatloaf with the entire block of cheddar cheese tucked inside of it."
—Julia Turshen, author of Now & Again and Small Victories and host of Keep Calm and Cook On
