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

  • Published: 11 July 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.

    I feel like Brads a nice guy but is a little sexist. Like he has an expert telling him how to do a job but isn't listening to her and just brushes off her directions. I have to wonder if it was Chris would he be so quick to ignore the advice?

                        So watching all three episodes I def believe the issue with the second episode donuts was Brad's folding at 21:45. He kinda mutilated that baby lol. All ended well though!

                              Doughnuts is not the philosophical question...croissants are the true mind bender...are they pastry or bread?..they are proved..they do have yeast...but they are laminated like a pastry..pastry or bread?...pastry or bread?...?
