Join Brad as he shows you how to transform salmon into the perfect cured addition to any breakfast or meal, shows off his prized ball bearing collection, and asks whether we’re alone in this vast univer- wait, I’m getting word he’s just asking how to pronounce turmeric. Tune in to find out!

    The editing was kinda too much in this one, too repetitive and too many sound effects. For the record, I normally LOVE the editing in these, eg, in the Doughnuts Saga of It's Alive. Or Gourmet Makes. Don't hate me, though, it's just an opinion.

    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.
