Description

Bring a taste of NYC to your groups' kitchen: learn to make bagels! Make, shape, then boil and bake this tasty brunch treat along with our chef instructor. We’ll even make a roasted garlic-chive cream cheese to schmear on a bagel at the end of this two-hour class.

Your Group Will Learn/Do:

  • Make bagel dough
  • Roll bagels into their bagel-y shapes
  • Bake your fresh made bagels to perfection
  • Make a home made roasted garlic & chive cream cheese which you can spread on your incredible bagels.

Our bagels turned out delicious! This was my second course with Eve and it was even better than the first. Her pacing was perfect and easy to follow. Also, I’m a new fan of Everything Seasoning for bagels. I’m going to make these bagels again!

Had a lot of fun and got some good bagels out of it! They’re super tasty and it’s not actually that hard to do (I was nervous because I normally only bake cookies)

This was a fantastic class. Chef Simon Herfray was the instructor and he did a wonderful job walking us through every step, answering all of our questions and was incredibly patient. Would take another class with Chef Simon in a heartbeat. And the bagels?? TO DIE FOR! My NY born and raised husband loved them. These will be a weekly bake for us!

It was a great class, Eve is a fantastic instructor

Eve was enthusiastic and certainly knows her way around the kitchen. I had hoped to learn a few new tricks to add to my approach to bagels. The technique Eve used is far too labor intensive for me. I manage to turn out a dozen pre 1960 Brooklyn bagels in a fraction of the time with a food processor but I did note that some of the participants did manage to get decent results so the course was helpful and of value to them. I appreciate Eve’s effort and in no way wish to give the impression that I was dissatisfied. I was impressed with her knowledge and ability to explain the chemistry without appearing like a pedant like me.
Kathleen L.
Great teacher! Great bagels! Eve was patient and encouraging. Problem - she needs to send instructions to me when class started. I did get an email but the link wasn’t highlighted and cutting and pasting into browser didn’t work. As a result, I was a bit behind which was uncomfortable.

Our bagels were great. Easy to follow. Good pace. Lots of answers. The teacher Eve was very good.
