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.

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! 👌

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.

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!

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".

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.
