In middle school, pastry chef Claire Saffitz basically subsisted on an all-Bagel Bite diet. But will she like them as an adult or is the magic gone? As Alex Delany puts it, they're not good, but you still want more. Join Claire in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of her childhood go-to, Bagel Bites.

The dodo and everything is all fresh and made right in front of you and the huge Brick Oven so anyways it's a thin thin thin thin rolled out Doe, pieces of thick cut bacon, baby spinach leaves, alfredo sauce, sea salt, and finally fresh cubes of mozzarella because they have the large mozzarella ball in the water they take it out and tear off the pieces for your pie anyways that's to give you an idea how they do it

Here I am trying to watch the show in 02:00 am in my bed and struggling to catch the subtitle on all around the screen. Thank you for ruining subtitles by that way.
