  • Published on Oct 10, 2019
  • Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone is back for episode 57 of “It’s Alive,” and this time he’s making fermented popcorn seasoning! Brad dehydrates and blends sauerkraut, kimchi, and miso into his own custom fermented spice blend. Join Brad as he learns about alchemy, 90s fitness fads, and faces off with his greatest foe yet… the microwave.

    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.
