Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski On Emotional Eating And Impostor Syndrome

Antoni Porowski wasn’t the obvious choice to be the food expert on Queer Eye — he’s not a chef and he has no formal culinary training. When the show debuted in 2018, many people asked, “Can this guy actually cook?” Not the most reassuring reaction for a person who already struggled with impostor syndrome. In the years since, he’s alternated between trying to prove his haters wrong, and trying to stop worrying about what others think. On the eve of his second cookbook — Let's Do Dinner — coming out, where is he at with these internal battles? Antoni also reveals his struggles with body image, his secrets for a good salad, and his hot takes on pierogi.
