What you'll do
I'm the owner of Fine Bagels, Berlin's best bagel bakery. Step by step, I'll give you hands-on instruction, teaching you how to make, roll, boil, and bake your own authentic New York water bagels and bialys in my bakery kitchen - and how to recreate the same results in your own home kitchen. I'll tell you all about bagel history and Jewish baking and food culture in Europe - past and present - including the current revival of Jewish food culture in Berlin and the surge in artisanal bagel baking worldwide. After we bake, we’ll sit down to eat a lunch of your own hot bagels with a spread of traditional toppings in the adjoining charming bookstore cafe. All are welcome...whether you're a baking novice but a bagel expert, a baking expert but a bagel novice, or anything in between.
I've been baking bagels in Berlin for the last 6 years. Fine Bagels is set inside a bookstore, so it’s also a great place to pick up some reading. Originally from Boston, I'm passionate about baking bread and maintaining and spreading the food traditions I grew up with. I'm the founder and co-organizer of Nosh Berlin, Berlin's first Jewish food week, and love to teach people about Jewish baking!
Bagel lunch Can accommodate vegetarians and vegans if advance notice
