Queer Eye‘s Antoni Porowski has launched a new Instagram TV series where he shares recipes designed for housebound folks in quarantine because of the coronavirus.

Wearing a vest, as to remind the viewer of his biceps in this trying time, his first episode of  “Quar Eye” has the hunk whip-up as “keep calm-lette”.

Wordplay is clearly on the menu here.

What’s cooking, good looking?

The culinary expert took to Instagram Tuesday to drop the first episode, where he served up the prophetic caption: “An omelette made in isolation is still an omelette.”


“Served with a black bean salsa made with whatever was left at the grocery store,” Porowski wrote.

Addressing his 4.3million followers, Porowski lamented a situation all too familiar to many in the coronavirus pandemic epoch.

Having a hankering for huevos rancheros, but the ingredients to make it all ransacked from the stores.

“I know that that’s something everybody’s experiencing,” he said.

Yes, Porowski, we have.

“We’re stuck at home, but we might as well still be able to prepare good food, that’s good for us, and that makes us feel good.

“We need things that make us feel good, even in pandemics like these.”
The day after, he blessed us with another episode but, this time, did not show off his arms. A true tragedy in these dark times.

Antoni Porowski urges people not to stockpile food and household essentials. 

“Zoodles” (spiralised courgette noodles) were on the self-isolation menu for Wednesday’s menu, showing how everyday items gathering dust in your pantry can make for delicious vegetarian meals.

In the third episode – which featured the dramatic return of the grey vest following popular demand – Porowski uses leftovers from the previous episodes.

Supply chains in many supermarkets and mini-marts are strained by shoppers stockpiling food and household essentials, caught in the paranoia of the pandemic.

“The Food and Drug Administration has put out an update that we should limit the amt of times we go to the grocery store to once a week so I’m using what I’ve got,” Porowski stressed.
