An Evening with Antoni Porowski
This event was originally scheduled for September 20, 2021.
Join Queer Eye star and New York Times bestselling author Antoni Porowski for a special evening to celebrate the publication of his cookbook, Antoni: Let's Do Dinner.
Antoni's trademark inclusive and accessible approach to food will inspire both newbies and knowledgeable cooks to look at dinner differently. He will demo recipes from the book, sharing how to crank the flavor, make exciting suppers from pantry staples, and create new takes on classics by swapping in a surprising ingredient or two. Antoni will answer your kitchen questions about everything from simple but special post-work suppers to casual entertaining tips and tricks. Plus, he lets you in on the secret weapons in every kitchen that get great food on the table fast.
A television personality, author, home cook, actor, and model, Antoni is best known as the food and wine expert on Netflix's Emmy Award-winning sensation Queer Eye. With a passion for food that is completely irresistible, he has also worked as a food consultant and private chef.
Every ticket includes a copy of Antoni: Let's Do Dinner (published by HMH Books, a $30 value). To pick up your copy of the book, you must attend the performance. Books will not be available for pick up outside of the performance.

Belk Theater features state-of-the-art equipment, production and support capabilities and can host any event, from grand opera to rock to corporate annual meetings and lectures.
The theater features a contemporary European horseshoe arrangement for an intimate atmosphere and world-class acoustics. The most distant seat is less than 135 feet from the stage.
A hallmark of the theater’s design is some 2,400 “points of light” in the audience chamber, part of a dazzling fiber optic network with multi-color capabilities.
Renowned architect Cesar Pelli designed the Performing Arts Center, which opened in 1992, as well as the adjacent Bank of America Corporate Center and Founders Hall. The Center’s name honors the contributions of the people of the state of North Carolina as well as the generosity of the Blumenthal Foundation, the largest private donor to the capital campaign.
