Although not a professional chef, Porowski, the Polish Canadian star of hit Netflix series Queer Eye, has an extensive background in food and a lifelong passion for cooking and entertaining. Porowski’s first cookbook with veteran cookbook writer Fox offers a dynamic mix of colorful recipes made with simple, fresh ingredients. The recipes, often inspired by family, friends, and Porowski’s favorite restaurants, offer updated twists on a variety of culinary traditions, including Persian, Greek, Italian, French, and Polish. Recipes for sophisticated yet laidback entertaining are especially appealing. Home cooks will also be inspired by hearty stews and pastas, seasonal vegetable dishes and salads, and a variety of sweet options. Porowski treats Queer Eye fans to plenty of culinary tidbits about his family, friends, and childhood in Montreal, along with a slew of glamorous photos shot on New York’s streets and in its markets and shops. The overall package is fresh, stylish, and trendy, just what you’d expect from one of the Fab Five.
VERDICT The Queer Eye star’s first cookbook is sure to appeal to the show’s many fans and foodies alike; an essential purchase.
