Brad and Claire Make Doughnuts Part 1: The Beginning | It's Alive | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Jul 11, 2019
  • Bon Appétit’s Brad and Claire are back for a very special crossover episode (Part 1!) of It’s Alive. Claire says they’re making doughnuts with sourdough starter. Brad’s trying to make “sourdoughnuts” a thing. Who will win? You will: this episode had so many good Brad and Claire moments that we had to make it two parts.
    *Correction, let's make that three parts.

    Join Bon Appétit Test Kitchen host Brad Leone on a wild, roundabout, and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to experiment with fermented and live foods yourself.

    Brad has such strong stoner energy that even if he isn't currently smoking weed and his co-host is not a habitual weed smoker, they both start to act high.

    I laughed so much on this one. Love Brad and Claire pairing up. Especially with Vinny's little sarcastic pop ups. Fantastic.

    Lol that's ridiculous. They don't sell your DNA to the illuminate, they send your data to the FBI for free and then publish articles about why they did it.

    Honestly, the fact that the producers left the wind on Brad's mic while he was fanning himself with the Cambro lid while Claire was talking about next steps in the recipe is a testament to the sheer understanding of their audience. Bada-bing!

    I've been struggling with depression lately. I don't know why, but seeing these cooking videos helps me a lot. Recently I've started taking up cooking, because I love bringing friends and family together over it; and, this has helped bring me out of my funk. Thank you Bon Appetit! You are all wonderful!
