'Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski On His Cooking Abilities Criticism: 'I Have To Take The Bad'

'Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski On His Cooking Abilities Criticism: 'I Have To Take The Bad'

Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski and Karamo Brown are all smiles as they pose for a photograph at their Netflix’s Queer Eye: Cast In Conversation with Teen Vogue held at 92nd Street Y on Tuesday (June 19) in New York City.

The cast members were joined at the event by moderator Phillip Picardi as they discussed season two of Queer Eye, which is available now to stream.

Antoni recently opened up about the criticism he has received about some of his cooking recipes: “It was at first, especially because as soon as the show came out it was like this explosion of love and nothing but praise, and then suddenly you see like one bad thing, and it’s like, Oh my gosh. I mean luckily for the bad, it’s very troll-y, blog-y; for the most part no publication that I really deeply respect very much. But it’s still — if I’m going to be taking the good, I have to take the bad with it as well.”

“That whole cooking-gate thing, that was really painful for me personally because I ate your gorgeous oatmeal all the time,” Jonathan added (via NPR). “I ate your gorgeous smoothies all the time. I ate your gorgeous fajitas all the time… And when anyone brings it up it makes me want to — like, next thing I know my finger is going, my neck is going, I’m having a whole thing. I’m like, “Do you want a menu? What do you need from me to make you understand how good he cooks? What do you need?’”

    who cares if he can cook .. he’s beautiful and nice … and it’s A SHOW…

    But he can cook–he was Ted Allen’s assistant for years. It’s just unfortunate that the people they make over on the show don’t really warrant much cooking.
