Fans of Netflix’s Queer Eye series will be excited to hear that Bluebird will be publishing Antoni in the Kitchen by the foodie star of Queer Eye, Antoni Porowski, in October 2019.
Full of beautiful photography, Antoni in the Kitchen will shine a spotlight on the Queer Eye food and wine expert’s trademark inclusive and accessible attitude to food, with one hundred of his all-time favourite recipes.
Antoni in the Kitchen will celebrate the author’s passion for fresh, nourishing cooking for all occasions that is both simple and delicious. With chapters including Weeknight Healthyish, and dishes such as Roasted Carrots with Carrot-Top Pesto, Macadamia-Crusted Lamb Lollies with Spicy Honey Agrodolce and Polish Hazelnut-Caramel Easter Squares, this debut cookbook will tempt both newbies and knowledgeable cooks to join Antoni in the kitchen.
Fans of Queer Eye (a show with ‘heart on a scale usually seen on autumnal Sunday night dramas on the Beeb’ – Telegraph) will be pleased to hear that stories behind every recipe give readers a peek into Antoni’s own life, motivations and inspiration. As well as fast, feel-good food, Antoni in the Kitchen also showcases the emotional, therapeutic nature of cooking, and the joy of sharing food with friends and loved ones.
Publisher Carole Tonkinson says: ‘I’ve rarely seen such excitement about an acquisition, from right across the company. We were lucky enough to meet Antoni on a press trip to London and were completely won over by his personal, authentic approach to cooking, weaving in Polish family favourites to Canadian flavours and tastes from around the world. I can’t imagine a better holiday present for a Queer Eye fan!’
Antoni says: ‘I am super excited that dear Carole Tonkinson of Bluebird is publishing my first cookbook. What began as a collection of recipes from my life to date has evolved into a culinary autobiography with food as its centerpiece. I can't wait to share this exciting collection of dishes - be they for entertaining, family dinners, or low-key nights - with the personal stories behind them.’
