Just like the average person, I closely follow the triumphs and tribulations of the test kitchen fam on the Bon Appétit channel.
I got hooked on it some time ago because of Brad, the gentle giant with a fermentation station. When I see “wourder” pop up on screen, I feel like I am part of a loving cult.
So I was struck with utter bafflement when the latest episode of It’s Alive was basic AF: fermented citrus fruits?! Vacuum-sealed kumquats salted with the mathematical precision of moving two decimal digits is an episode?
