Everybody talks and writes about handsome Antoni Porowski, The New York Times, Oprah Winfrey, professional and recognized food magazines: Food&Wine and Bon Appétit but not everybody knows that he has Polish roots, speaks Polish and taught himself to cook by referring to his Polish grandmother’s cooking techniques.

He speaks Polish, English and French and after moving to New York to start his film career he worked in food service to support himself financially. He worked for example at a family-run Polish restaurant and later as a waiter and sommelier, eventually managing BondSt sushi restaurant.
