If you ask him, Antoni Porowski has great taste. But some chefs may soon disagree.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last night, the Queer Eye star was asked to critique celebrity food Instagrams. Piece of cake, right? Well, he wasn't told who actually cooked each dish. And things turned sour quickly.
"Antoni," began host Andy Cohen, "Do you find this chicken couscous enticing?" He had this response ready instantly: "Too much broth. No." Bam, maybe not his best. As it turns out, the dish was made by known other than world-renowned chef and James Beard winner Emeril Lagasse. Cue the face palm.
"Does this Caprese salad look refreshing?" Andy wondered next. To which Antoni judged, "Where's the olive oil drizzled on top?"
That one belonged to OG Queer Eye personality Ted Allen, who, ICYMI, knows just a thing or two about food thanks to his longtime hosting gig on Chopped. And by now, everyone—including his castmates Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Jonathan Van Ness—were feeling the second-hand embarrassment.
The gravy train stopped there, though.
Shown a snap of some rather unappetizing, raw turkeys, Antoni said he would be game: "It's a brine. That's what brine looks like!" he explained. "I'll eat it." The chef behind the dish: Flavortown's Guy Fieri. And by the looks of it, Antoni was no longer pleased with his answer.
So what did he think Jennifer Garner, Mindy Kaling and Rachael Ray and their delicacies?
