40 lessons Antoni has taught us about eating at Season 3 of & # 39; Queer Eye & # 39;


The much anticipated season three of Queer Eye is finally here, so if you had plans this weekend, cancel them. This is binge watching material at its best. Season three follows the Fab Five as they make over nine heroes in Kansas City, Missouri (an episode features makeovers for two sisters)! With the entire season now under my belt, I will tell you this: When I wasn't crying (seriously – this season is a tear-jerk), I was HUNGRY. The resident food expert of the Fab Five, Antoni Porowski, has definitely graduated from citrus salad and simple guacamole. How about porchetta with a dry rub as an alternative to a boring burger ?! Antoni, cute and charming as ever, has enough lessons to teach heroes (and us) how to prepare, enjoy and appreciate food. Let's start! Like, duh.Antoni recommends shaving the zucchini and adding a little olive oil, salt and lemon juice for a quick and easy vegetarian dish. Go out for dinner or cook something new doesn't have to be intimidating. Antoni explains that when you find something "too fancy", such as dining in a particular restaurant or tasting something from your comfort zone, it sounds like "elitist" or "wrong." Instead, consider these new experiences with food like & # 39; special & # 39 ;.

4. Be inspired by restaurants and bring it to your own kitchen.

If you try something while eating out that you never thought you could make yourself, pay attention! Give it your own twist at home.

5. Enjoy food with the right person.

Antoni acknowledges that if you leave your comfort zone when you eat out, you can be intimidating, if you are with the right person, you can "make a whole mess at the table and not even care" (while he eats lobster).

6. Skip a boring burger – try porchetta.

Antoni tells the camp's program director with the lead role in this episode that Porchetta with a "nice little friction" is a good upgrade to a normal citizen. That is whole the upgrade, indeed!

7. Dry friction for porchetta is super easy.

The only Antoni uses is coffee, chili powder and brown sugar, all ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry!

8. Eating (and cooking) can help you through difficult times.

Antoni tells how food is something that makes him feel better during difficult times in his life.

9. "Roll up porchetta like a meat cigar."

10. Porchetta must be tightly tied in a uniform pattern.

11. Cooking "is care" – and "that is the greatest gift you could give."

An easy, yet special way to show someone you care about them? Cook them something delicious!

12. Cilantro stems have a purpose!

Antoni says that the stems are crispy and have a lot of taste. He adds them to the slaw that goes on the porch sliders. The slaw is made with cabbage, coriander, mayo, canned chipotle and adobo juices, and apple cider vinegar, which Antoni emphasizes is "super important" for a slaw.

13. Dijon and cherries go together … apparently.

Photo credit: NetflixMore I am skeptical, but everyone (including the children in the camp!) Seemed to really enjoy the sliders, including the spicy and sweet Dijon and cherry sauce.

14. Heirloom tomato juice and lemonade also go together …?!

Yes, IDK. The Fab Five, however, drank it, so it's worth a try … right?

15. Tomatoes must not be stored in the refrigerator.

Keep your "fruit of the summer" in a cool, dry place, Antoni argues. <H3 class = "canvas atom canvas text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "Episode 3 – Jones Bar-BQ

16. The basis for BBQ sauce is ketchup.

17. We should enjoy tea more often.

And not alone to spill the. In this episode Antoni serves the sisters high tea, which he says is a great time to sit back, relax and to breathe. <h4 class = "canvas-atom canvas-text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "18.

19. Drink water between beers.

Okay, this might be a bit obvious, but still VERY important! Do this!

20. "If you put enough butter in everything, it will taste great."

Is that not the truth? Antoni also calls this "the easy way out" for cooking unhealthy meals. Neither explanation is wrong!

21. Measure your ingredients before you start cooking.

Photo credit: NetflixMoreAntoni has always put his various ingredients in front of him before he starts cooking. It seems to make the whole process a lot more efficient and less stressful.

22. Balance is the key.

Enjoy the weekend! Make your mac and cheese and pizza. It's all about balance in food, says Antoni.

23. Antoni's friends ate very well at school.

He says that potlucks are fun to do in college, because everyone can bring their own dish, such as risotto or pasta. UH. I don't know anything about you, but my college "potlucks" consisted of chips and salsa, delivery pizza, cheap wine and buff chick dip if we were lucky.

24. Chicken broth ramen is a "cheap and cheerful" meal that "feeds a plow".

Photo credit: the NetflixMoreAntoni recipe contains carrots, ginger, garlic, miso and red chili paste.

25. Sesame oil adds a "nutty" smokiness to a dish.

It is so easy to find in most supermarkets.

26. Try ground pork for a cheap meal option.

There is more to the minced meat section than beef and turkey!

27. There is an "emotional intelligence" to be able to ask for help when you need it.

Yes, even in the kitchen.

28. Noodles for windows take "basically a minute" to cook.

Photo credit: NetflixMore And you have to separate the noodles a bit before adding them to the pot!

29. Making food from scratch makes memories.

Antoni points out that you don't remember the times your parents made you a microwave – memories are made with good home-cooked meals.

30. Fish sticks can be semi-healthy.

Photo credit: NetflixMoreAntoni & # 39; s recipe uses Mahi-mahi (which he describes as a lean, flaky fish) and a healthier crust …

31. Squashed macadamia nuts can be used in recipes instead of breadcrumbs.

Put the nuts in a plastic bag and smash them. Antoni explains that the nuts crumble nicely and have a good crunch on the outside of the fish stick (or something else that you fry).

32. "Brussels sprouts smell like farts."

I mean. They do … <h4 class = "canvas-atom canvas-text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "33. And if you don't have Brussels haven't had that taste like farts, it's time to change that. "data-reactid =" 470 "> 33. And if you haven't had Brussels, you won't taste like farts, it's time to change that.

Just stay with him.

34. There is a very special way to cut Brussels.

Photo credit: NetflixMoreYou have to cut the lower part of the sprout (that doesn't taste very good) in a "V" shape, so that the leaves stay attached. Then cut away the center for a cross-section, says Antoni.

35. Cooking steak is shockingly simple.

Antoni uses butter, a clove of garlic and sprigs of rosemary for the base. Then simply place it on the stove!

36. You can only use your hand to tell how much a steak has been cooked.

Photo credit: NetflixMoreAntoni shows the & # 39; touch key & # 39 ;, pressing the skin on the inside of your hand under your thumb while touching the thumb with another finger to estimate the texture of meat at different cooking stages. For safe use, use a thermometer to determine the temperature of a piece of meat!

37. Ground linseed is "so good for BM's."

Yes, that is bowel movements. Thanks Antoni, for the digestive tip!

38. Sugar cookies from scratch are as simple as 1-2-3.

Photo credit: NetflixMoreSeriously the recipe for the dough is one part sugar, two parts butter, three parts flour. After the ingredients have been mixed, form a nice ball of dough. When cut and put on a baking sheet, cook them in the oven at 350°.

39. Parents: take advantage of children's interest in cooking.

Antoni points out that cooking together is a great attachment time. Have the children do a simpler task during dinner or bake something for a special occasion (such as the baby shower in this episode)!

40. To really impress your friends, personalize their sugar cookies.
