Porowski learned how to cook by using his grandmother's cooking techniques. As reported by Parade, Porowski's love for food began at a young age. 
When asked to recount the first dish he remembers making, he responded -- "Microwaving sharp cheddar when I was 5 and eating it with a spoon." as well as "making Christmastime uszka—Polish-style' little ears', dumplings filled with wild mushrooms and served in borscht during the holidays."

He currently lives in New York in a  600 sq foot studio apartment, one that he is extremely proud of, as he revealed to Architectural Digest. "You know what, I'm Canadian, and we tend to be humble, but I'm not going to be. I love my home." he said, when asked about who has the best home out of the Fab Five. "We have a massive fig tree and two birds-of-paradise and a big banana tree, and I just love how my home is my sanctuary. When I come home after a long day of work, it's where I want to be." he added.
