It’s no surprise Queer Eye‘s food guru Antoni Porowski loves a cozy night in, making dinner with his beau, Trace Lehnhoff. The guacamole guru exclusively ~dished~ to Life & Style during City Harvest: The 2019 Gala about the pair’s date nights where they spend the evening cooking a meal together.
“It’s a joint effort,” the 35-year-old explained about the couple’s adventures in the kitchen together. So, what does someone whose life centers around food cook on their day off? Carbs, of course. The Netflix stud continued, “Fresh pasta’s definitely the more recent thing but it’s summer months coming now so we’re big into Mediterranean food — grilled fish, very simple the whole thing — with some oregano and lemon. Nice, simple, fresh.” We are definitely in for that … just waiting on our invite.
Antoni was first linked to the Flipping Out alum in October 2018 after things ended with his partner of seven years, Joey Krietemeyer. The duo tries to keep these intimate date nights consistent but their hectic schedules can get the better of them. The Canadian admitted, “Sometimes it’ll happen two or three times and then it won’t happen for three months because life is insane right now but I do my best.” Considering season 3 of the hit reality show took the cast to Kansas and Missouri, he’s obviously been busy on the road.
However, Antoni definitely appreciates the gesture when his man cooks for him. “I think it is! It’s a love language,” the foodie exclaimed when asked if he considered Trace cooking for him a romantic gesture. He divulged, “It’s an act of service for anybody, whether it’s a significant other or family members or whoever it is, by preparing something for someone even if it’s something really simple and modest like a sandwich. If somebody prepares me a peanut butter sandwich and takes time to smear the peanut butter to the edge of the bread so that there’s no crust part that’s sticking out (because who needs dried crust?), I think that’s really sweet.”
