    1. Amazingly Awkward

      I hope the editor gets paid handsomely, both monetarily and in food

    2. Mohammad Fahmy

      This recipe is amazing, highly recommend! Thank you Brad and BA crew!

    3. Cosmic Ehrhart

      so uhhh. do they vacuum this station often? like when brad's there? he's wiping all the spices and salt off onto the floor lol

    4. senni bgon

      Hunzi's really milking the license for that "offended lady" clip 🤣

    5. Kris Mahan

      Best editor ever. Sound effects and transposing alone.

    6. Naeday

      For some reason I read the title as Cursed Salmon

    7. pasindu uchiha

      Whats the music at 1:30?

      1. pasindu uchiha

        @senni bgon huh?

      2. senni bgon

        Oh my god I love him

    8. Andie Early

      What, no fresh tomato!? What kind of a monster are you?! 🧟‍♂️

    9. Bryce Helton

      My exposure to Delaney is only in these videos, so I’m convinced he doesn’t cook anything. I assume he just hides in different corners of the kitchen to surprise Brad while filming.

    10. Kay Dubbleyuh

      Too funny. Luv the start of this vid already. Brad = charming. After more time working in fine dining than I care to admit, I'd say every pro kitchen that works has a version of Brad in it! 👌

    11. Ms. Rae

      Brad will always be the original TK chef for me. I found the test kitchen via It’s Alive and it’s still the best show. ❤️Brad Leone forever. And ❤️ Hunzi for bringing this joy to all of us.

    12. zuygj bnsv

      Anyone else kinda want to see him attempt to make Surströmming (fermented herring) next?

    13. J. cali

    14. Why Not Read

      You know what's great Brad...... Smoked gravlaks and smoked whole pieces of salmon that's where it's at.....

    15. mnika voli

      13:05 “Who put this here, Andy. Is this you?” IS LITERALLY THE PERSON WHO MADE LEMON WATER A WHILE AGO WITH IT Oh Brad.

      1. zuygj bnsv

    19. LueXiong10

      “Lemon bae.... stupidest thing I’ve done all week.” 🤣🤣🤣

    20. alexander fortin

      the editing on these videos is absolutely incredible 😂😂😂

    21. Dennis Bunik

      Is brad high?...i mean it's not like thete are any potheads in the culunary world right?.... I mean none of the cooks at my restaurant smoke pot riiiiight?

    22. Hannah Via

      Oh my god I love him

    23. Jolly yas

      How about making that square seaweeds sheet. I am not sure what its name is but I hope you get what I mean.

    24. IDogger

      Brad straight up reminds me of Bill Nye and how his old shows were done. Love you Brad & Vinny

    25. Stephen Hill

      I held it together pretty well until Brad spanked the Oysters and it showed the old lady. I died.

    26. iceman5321

      Do you have a new camera or a new lense? Looks very good!! :)


      I love you Brad so much sooo soo much

    29. Sarah Ross

      Brad and Julien Solomita need to cook something together

    30. Isolus

      the its alive edits give me life

    31. Naomi Bun

      I always appreciate the BA video editor. It makes the video so much more interesting without disturbing the content. Really a lot of humor this guy/girl has!

    32. Kriste Isopahkala

      As a Finn it is weird to watch food so essentially nordic being made by Brad. It's not like we have the most interesting food culture in the world. By the way, gravlax is swedish and basically means "grave salmon".

      1. Kriste Isopahkala

        @woiour loin Yeah, me too.

      2. woiour loin

        Sa någon gravlax? Love it.

    33. daniel moreland

      We need more Brad Leone.

    34. Tia Sprengel

      The Kim Possible beep SENT ME

    35. Brandon Whitaker

      This video is an absolute masterclass in editing

    36. Heidi Hernandez

      I’m gonna need a Julien Solomita + Brad Leone collaboration. Ok thanks bye

    37. Anthony Benson

      I need a “Fish Possible” Shirt please

    38. Riis Freivogel

      Something interesting about Brad Leone that I think makes his personality so relatable, is that he isn't some chef prodigy that graduated culinary school at age 6 or whatever. As a matter of fact, Brad didn't even START culinary school until he was 26 years old! Goes to show that you're never "too old" to pick up a new interest if you're really passionate about it.

    39. Bailey B

      Okay this It’s Alive episode has so much more chaotic energy than usual...and he’s just curing salmon!

    40. Al

      wow the editor really popped off, 10/10 good job

    41. Marc-André Demers

      still the best show on BA

    42. thesleepmonster


    43. Nohemi Hernandez

      Yummm !!!!!!

      Food: exists Andy: "Hey can I..."

    45. shadesofblue

      This is what i imagined would happen if Bob Ross and a human version golden retriever somehow got smashed together and manage to sneak into a 5 star restaurant kitchen

    46. T S

      U guys r sooo lovable

    47. Tove Glaas

      Sa någon gravlax? Love it.

      1. Tove Glaas

        Also, lax just means salmon in Swedish.

    48. anitsa manson

      The EDITINNGGGG 😂😂😂😂

      1. bodoy euir

        My Scandinavian heart can't take all this deliciousness. I'm craaaaving gravad lax now!!!

    49. Rudra Narine

      Brad speaks like a rural ontarian

    50. Frank R. Haugen

      Brad definitely have ADD or something... Very funny to watch, but we all know that Claire is ste star of the channel :-P

    51. Andrea Cardenas


    52. D Acosta

      Where did Vinny go

    53. montopunk

      Andy was about to do a Baudelaire at the beginning with that knife

    54. type beast

      Grandma clutching her pearls gets me every time. 😂

    55. daneo

      Brad is slowly losing his natural energy. He was acting way too forced in this one. Maybe he is over this series but BA makes him do it

    56. Jack Tse

      a Jersey crumpet

    57. The Plus VR

      Nevermind. *Raises knife*

    58. Malk Light
