What you'll do

**All workshops are currently private per booking**

Welcome to the only place in Montreal that will teach you how to make Montreal bagels!

Montreal bagels are world famous for their shape, taste and texture. A trip to Montreal isn't complete until you've tried one of these amazing bagels. So why not try your hand at making them yourself? I will teach you the secrets on how to make some deliciously unique and authentic Montreal style bagels at home, the easy way.

We will start by learning how the ingredients used affect the Bagels and the final result. Then we will all measure our ingredients using scales. After that, I will show you how to properly mix and knead the dough which you will do on your own right after me. I have adapted the best Boulanger (Bread Maker) techniques to the home kitchen so you will become a confident baker at home in no time!

After mixing the dough, we will learn how to shape the bagels, to boil them, dress them up with various toppings, bake them and finally eat them fresh out of the oven! Not many things can beat eating freshly baked and delicious Bagels that you have made yourself right out of the oven.

This workshop is super hands on so this is far from the "Watch the pro" type of workshop.

I show you how then it's your turn!

You will leave with a detailed recipe to take home.

Thanks,
Will

I’m a Québec born world traveler and baker. I have spent more than half my life living over in Vancouver and overseas. I've acquired knowledge in many places around the world which has made me a well rounded baker. I have recently moved back to my roots here in Québec and am hoping to spread the love and passion I have developed over the many years for artisan Baking. I've been a daily baker for nearly half a decade now and I've developed techniques to make artisan baking accessible and easy for first timers!

Where you'll be

With the help of my beautiful Interior designer girlfriend, we try our best to set a cozy, heart warming atmosphere in our home. Ambient music from a record player, plants everywhere, scented candles, you name it we have it! This is meant to be a pleasant experience for everyone so every aspect of the workshop has been carefully designed to appeal.

Nous avons été parfaitement acceuilli par Will. Autodictate dans l'âme, Will est pédagogue et sait partager sa passion. Nous avons passé un excellent moment pour faire l'atelier de Bagel (qui étaient meilleurs que St Viateur et Fairmount bagel). Un atelier riche en enseignement.
