Everyone’s favourite avocado aficionado, Antoni Porowski, is set to star in his own TV series.
Since 2018, the Polish-Canadian talent has captured the hearts of LGBTQIA+ TV viewers with his food and wine knowledge on the hit Netflix series Queer Eye.
Now it looks like he’ll be taking his dreamy looks and lust for life internationally with his new solo show, No Taste Like Home with Antoni.
According to Deadline, the series is set to air on National Geographic and will follow Porowski as he helps a batch of global celebrities connect to their “rich heritages”.
“With extensive culinary expertise, a passion for connecting people through food and pride in his own Polish heritage, Porowski guides celebrities on an unprecedented journey toward cultural and personal discovery,” the press release adds.
While the participating celebrities are being kept under wraps, the exciting episodes will see The Blacklist star travel to South Korea, Germany, Italy, Senegal, Malaysian Boreno, New York and Texas.
In a statement, Porowski expressed his excitement for the show and working with National Geographic.
“Food is such an integral part of understanding who we are and where we come from,” he said.
