What you'll do

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!

Finally, and most importantly, I will leave you with a detailed and complete Recipe to take home so you can recreate the Bagels anytime you want!

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.

Lots of fun! At first, I was a little leery of attending an event hosted at a home. But Will's place is very new, clean, and well-lit. It was a unique experience in a unique city, and definitely lots of fun!

Let me start by saying that you should not miss out on this opportunity. Will is really friendly, down to earth and knowledgeable about the various aspects of baking. This activity lasts about two hours during which you will learn about bagels, the recipe, common mistakes, tips and tricks and much more. The location is easily accessible, duper well decorated and very cozy. You should come to this workshop even if you have no experience with baking. Will will make sure you feel engaged and will help you correct any mistakes you make. I truly recommend this experience as something memorable to do while in Montreal. Do not miss out.
