Bagels!

Sun Apr 25, 2004 11:48 am

I'm hungry. And I wish I could eat a delicious bagel right now!

What are your favorite types of bagels? I could pretty much eat any type, and I've seen quite a few interesting ones.

Last time I was in London (2002) they had bagels but I never was able to get one elsewhere in Europe....Has it changed? Do our international members eat bagels?!

Sorry for this useless post lol  Smile

I like plain bagels with cream cheese or marmalade. Cinnamon bagels are good too.

Frankly, outside of NYC, the bagel situation sucks, except for Montreal, where Montreal style bagels are in a class of their own. If you've never had them, you don't know what you are missing. You can get Montreal style bagels in Burlington too.

I know!!!!

". If you've never had them, you don't know what you are missing"

How are they made? I think I remember seeing a show on the Food Network about a bagel place in Montreal......

Any fresh bagel with:

1) Sour cream / onion / chives spread
2) freshly cut prosciutto (note: eat sparingly. very unhealthy. and VERY expensive.)

YUMMMMM so gooood!!!!!!!!!!

Ewwww, who needs all those flavoured monstrosities? Give me a good fresh Montreal style bagel any day. The most you need is a light smattering of cream cheese. I think I just made myself homesick and hungry.

SWA TPA- if you lose more than 2lbs a week, 1 its water and 2 you are more likely to put the weight back on. Its been proven.

Rjpieces,

The Montreal style bagel is generally a smaller, thinner variety than the "New York" style which is so common these days. The preparation is significantly different including the fact that after the dough is prepared and shaped, the bagels are boiled in honey water for a few minutes before being immediately transferred to a wood burning oven. The result is a less doughy bagel with a beautiful sheen and glaze, a slightly sweet taste, a bit of a crunch on the outside and a soft, delicate, and moist inside. When eaten fresh from the oven, they are a little piece of culinary heaven.

It's quite the industry in Montreal, with many bakeries and chains centred mostly around bagel making.

Here's one of the more famous shops in Montreal: http://www.stviateurbagel.com
