We learned our craft after working many years at the venerable Montreal bagel bakeries, Real Bagel, Fairmount and St.Vaiteur. Our bagels are made using the same simple ingredients-water, flour, sugar, eggs, and oil-no shortening. They are hand-rolled and boiled in honey-water to provide a crunchy-sweet exterior and baked a wood oven fuelled by maple. We continued learning the craft of authentic Montreal-style bagels. After long discussion, we had decided to introduce the hidden jewel to Ontarians.
