Antoni in the Kitchen by Antoni Porowski

Antoni in the Kitchen

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 rec...

    Bizarre. Very bizarre.I don't really know who this guy is but I felt deeply uncomfortable by the 47 photos of him included in this cookbook featuring absolutely zero food but only him gazing longingly into the camera.After finishing this, I reread the blurb hoping to assuage my confusion. I'm more confused. Casual? Half of these recipes call for artisan cheeses or other ingredients I can easily attain now that I live in a large city but let me te...

    Will I make anything in this photoshoot of Antoni being hot in kitchens? I will not. But I sure enjoyed flipping through it.
  • Carol - Reading Writing and Riesling
    A great read - Antoni shares with the reader memoirs from his childhood; family meal times and shares recipes that you will love. The best thing about the recipes is that the ingredient list is very specific - instead of saying a juice one lemon (this is one of my biggest gripes about some cook books - I grow citrus, the size of the fruit varies so much, so when a recipe calls for the juice of a lime or lemon or orange for example - what size are...
  • Beth Polebaum
    There are some good recipes in this book. (Try the turkey keftes!) I would have preferred more pics of the food and fewer of Antoni, cute as he is, lol.
  • Nic
    I don't usually read all the way through cookbooks, but I did this time. I mean, I didn't read the full recipe every single time - especially meat ones, since I wouldn't make those - but I read all of the recipe intros and all of Antoni's little cooking tips. Interesting, useful, and often cute and fun. I enjoyed it - and look forward to making some of the recipes! I'll try to remember to update my review once I've done so and can comment on how ...
  • The Candid Cover (Olivia & Lori)
    Full Review on The Candid CoverAntoni in the Kitchen by Antoni Porowski is a cookbook that is unlike any other that I have read. The recipes are fresh and fun, while the images and commentary will satisfy fans of the Netflix series, Queer Eye. It is an easy to follow book that contains a multitude of ideas for home chefs.One of my favourite TV personalities, Antoni Porowski, has created the ultimate book for his fans. Even if cooking isnt quite y...

    I have to admit I don't know Antoni Porowski and I've never watched Queer Eye (I've heard of it though). So this isn't a fan review. I wanted to read this book because the recipes sounded interesting and different. Boy was I not disappointed!The design of the book is beautiful, the photographs, fonts, etc, everything works perfectly in harmony. The recipes are original, varied and sound delicious. I would call them healthy but hearty, which is wh...
  • Miss Susan
    food photographs are super pretty but there's not a lot here i'd actually cook -- i think i snapped photos of maybe half a dozen recipes? also my man antoni does a lot more entertaining than i do, god as my witness, i do not and will not spend time making pretty appetizers the way he does, at most i'll do a side salad + dessert if i have company over(on my own the dessert stays but otherwise, i don't believe in sides, when there's a salad on my t...

    Anything with a recipe for poutine is A++ in my book.
  • Mashiara
    I feel like I should only mark this read after having tried out every single recipe, but I want to share the joy. So. Much. Great. Food. Omnomnoms
  • Nicole Gaudier
    I made some delicious recipes from this book! I like that Antoni stayed true to who he is as a cook & what he is interested in food wise. The book also has beautiful images.

    I don't even know how to rate a cookbook...I made a bunch of the recipes. The pizza rice bundt cake thing was a big hit at Friendsgiving. There were as many pictures of Antoni as there were of food. The foreward talked about his personal history with food, but I thought it could have been much more personal. But this is a cookbook, not a memoir.
  • Emily Beh
    When I first got the book, I was very ready to give this a 3 although I love Antoni & Queer Eye, etc.. However, after I finished reading the book, it was very hard not to give it more. To give it any less would be so unfair. Yes, the recipes aren't fucking extraordinary/weird in the super cool ways like Adria or Redzepi, but there is so much effort and love put into this book (read it then you'll know what I mean; like fucking heart emojis coming...
  • Rebecca Ann
    Swordfish is not paired-down, Antoni! I'm straight up only going to make this grilled cheese recipe because my version of paired down is a pack of ramen with frozen vegetables, but I was just here for the pictures of food and the fashion-model catalog of Antoni in different outfits.
  • my bookworm life
    I was very kindly sent a copy of this book from the publishers via Instagram, all views are my own.This is one of the best, if not the best, cookbooks that i own! , it has a bit of everything and it put together brilliantly! , the recipes look delicious and are so easy to follow too. It has a wide range of dishes to choose from, covering appetisers, snacks, pasta dishes, meat dishes, vegetable sides and bakes. I have made a few things from this b...

    A picture book of Antoni in the kitchen or recipes from Antoni in the kitchen? Still out for debate. Thankfully Antoni is as delicious as his recipes so either way I'm thankful to have a copy in my kitchen.

    I think Id eat most everything in this book though I dont expect to actually make any of the recipes. I think I’d eat most everything in this book though I don’t expect to actually make any of the recipes.
  • Erin
    This is actually one of the best cookbooks I've read. Which brings me to question: can you really read a cookbook? Does it count? It's a book and I read it, but also I feel like it doesn't count. Anyway, this one was very good. And although my cookbook-reading history isn't extensive, I still think that means something. This is exactly what I expected of Antoni, and it's great. Sometimes I feel like cookbooks are too far out of reach for people j...
  • Tara
    I got this book from the library a little before Thanksgiving and thought I might try a recipe to incorporate, but I didn't end up trying any of the recipes. The book starts with a short memoir-like introduction from Antoni and then a billion pictures of him, so many photos of him it's quite amusing. Since I'm vegan there weren't that many recipes that started out vegan, but I am usually fine adapting, there were a few I would have tried. I liked...
  • Zane
    I consider myself an amateur cook. I can cook something and there's lots that I can't (wow, Zane, you really outdid yourself with this statement!)Anyways - I found that for non-USA based person half of the recipes doesn't make sense, because I don't understand the ingredients or they are not available in my country (as the curse of most USA based cookbooks). And I'm not knowledgeable enough to know what to switch with something available.Sooo.. I...
  • Maddie
    Am I allowed to say I read a cookbook? Because I really like this cookbook. It's super pretty, Antoni has great tidbits with each recipe and I feel comfortable trying at least a couple of these recipes. My one complaint is that he'll say something like "this was a very affordable dish I made as a broke college student" and then one of the ingredients will be something a regular college student 100% wouldn't be able to buy at, like, a Wal-Mart or ...
  • Aoife
    Beautifully illustrated, clear instructions and no esoteric ingredients; this is a wonderful cookbook for everyone from beginners to seasoned chefs. A great range of recipes and options; there's something for everyone in this book. I'll be spending most of my time in the Bakes chapter!A great new cookbook, sure to become a family favourite.
  • Jenny Thompson
    Will I make many of these recipes? I did feel inspired to dump some frozen peas in some mac and cheese last night, so... not really, but sorta, I guess. Did I enjoy this cookbook? Very much. He definitely has a more comprehensively stocked local grocery store than I do, but at least he generally included easier to find substitutes for uncommon ingredients. The photography (as well as the main subject, of course) was beautiful.
  • Christina
    The best part of this book is the gorgeous photos of the gorgeous Antoni (oh, and the food). I love that he incorporated personal stories and shared cooking tips along with recipes from his background. He can make more than hot dogs!
  • Mary
    Every single recipe Ive made from this cookbook has been amazing. Ive been pleasantly surprised by simple recipes like the cauliflower steaks and the butter beans and tuna. He also has more complicated recipes like a lamb bolognese that blew my mind. Every single recipe I’ve made from this cookbook has been amazing.

    The guy can cook and I like the idea of foodie-memoir. . . also love the idea of tater-tot poutine. Nice photography, too.
