Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone is back for episode 66 of It’s Alive, and this time he’s making an open-face tomato sandwich. Join Brad as he fires up the grill, blisters some Flavor Bombs, and tries to remember the name of that one song that goes “la la la lala laaaa la laaaa.” Make sure your permission slip has been signed because we’re also going on a field trip to Michigan to see how tomatoes are grown and harvested in a greenhouse environment. Seatbelts, everyone!

    If this man made a cookbook it would be 1,000+ pages, mainly just pictures to which he refers instead of written instructions, and I would pay whatever was charged, no questions asked.

    To be fair to Brad, there IS a difference between New York February (winter) and say, Australia February (summer). February does take on different meaning depending where you are.
