The Only Thing More Beautiful Than Queer Eye Chef Antoni Is the Food He Cooks

Binge-watching the first season of Netflix's Queer Eye reboot was an exceptionally salty experience for me. First, because of all the tears I shed during every. damn. episode. Second, because watching absurdly handsome Fab Five chef Antoni Porowski prepare food with each of the show's makeover recipients always makes me hungry enough to head to the kitchen for a savory snack! So imagine my outrage when people dared to imply that Antoni, my beloved patron saint of avocados and Strokes t-shirts, can't cook. (Cue record scratch noise here.)

Yes, you read that right. People really tried it.

Apparently, because Antoni guides cooking-averse men through simple recipes on Queer Eye, some viewers interpreted that to mean he can't actually cook. Never mind that some of the guys featured on Queer Eye consider Mountain Dew mixed with tequila to be fine dining. Instead, the haters who question Antoni's skills in the kitchen feel that "a real chef" would have taught these men how to make bone marrow foam and grilled cauliflower steaks instead of basic staples (like guacamole or grilled cheese) that they'll actually cook regularly. Sounds logical.

But Antoni isn't one to let the haters sway him. Instead, the foodie of the Fab Five simply lets his cooking speak for itself, courtesy of beautifully styled Instagram photos taken by his proud partner, Joey Krietemeyer. From pan-seared salmon to gourmet beef bourguignon, Antoni's Instagram is filled with photos of the only thing more beautiful than his face: the food he lovingly prepares.

So look out, haters; these glorious meals are your proof (once and for all!) that Antoni can cook.

Bask in the glory of this delightful French omelette with baby bella mushrooms and fontina.

You try making a sheet-pan salmon with glazed veggies and pesto that looks this scrumptious.

Look at this motherf*cking beef bourguignon, haters. LOOK AT IT.

Are these almond and banana pancakes what people who "can't cook" make for breakfast? I think not.

This is what the man considers a "simple" side salad.

Yes, of course, your casual gourmet sweet potato fries with homemade chimichurri dipping sauce. Definitely can't cook.

This isn't your average slow-cooker chili from Pinterest. This is Antoni's made-with-love recipe.

Remember the haricots amandine that he taught Remy to prepare on Queer Eye? Here it is.

And the grilled cheese that he designed for Neal is looking pretty darn gourmet, is it not?

There's certainly a chef's touch to this charcuterie platter like the one Antoni helped AJ assemble.

Any Antoni haters can take a long, hard look at this roasted chicken. That's no George Foreman grill, baby.

Here's the grapefruit and avocado salad that got everybody talking — I'd like to see YOU make it this gorgeous, haters.

So what if that man likes his guac? We'd let him mash our avocados anytime.

So there's the proof, y'all — Antoni knows how to cook, and he does it well. Keep doing your thang, boo!
