Join head chef instructor Kristin “Baker Bettie” Hoffman to learn how to make authentic New York Style Bagels from scratch.
Participants will make their bagels 100% from start to finish including mixing, kneading, and shaping the dough by hand, boiling the bagels to get the perfect dense texture, and baking them for a crispy-on-the-outside finish. Each student will also make their own flavored cream cheese with a variety of add-in options.
You will take home the half-dozen large bagels you made in class and your custom cream cheese flavor.
