  • so who's gonna tell him lax means salmon in swedish... lax isn't a substitute word for gravlax, gravlax is a shortened version of gravad lax which means cured salmon in swedish

  • 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.

  • watching brad nail something is very rewarding. posi vibes only!

  • Nordic squad ;) Never heard of Gravlax/Gravad lax with turmeric and bay leaves (or chili for that matter) but I'm sure it's a nice twist of the og :p

  • 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! 👌
