What you'll do

WE ARE BACK! In person workshops are back!

Welcome to the only place in Montreal that will teach you how to make Montreal bagels! 560+ five star reviews!

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!

This experience is super family friendly so bring the kids!

After mixing the dough, we will learn how to shape the bagels, 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.

You will leave with a detailed recipe to take home.

Thanks for reading and hopefully see you soon!

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 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.

Will provided the perfect blend of baking theory, technique, humour, and interesting stories about the history of the Montreal style bagel. He broke down the steps and made it seem straightforward. Most importantly the bagels we made were amazing - as good as what we’ve tried from St Viateur or Fairmont. Looking forward to replicating at home. Highly recommended.

Will was absolutely wonderful. He did a great job of teaching us and making us feel comfortable with the baking process. The bagels were delicious and the atmosphere was awesome. All covid protocols were followed and we left satisfied and full of bagels.

Will was very friendly and gave us a number of cooking tips beyond just making great Montreal style bagels. Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend it

Great family activity. We have always loved Montreal bagels and now we are very excited to try out our new bagel making skills at home. Our daughters have a severe sesame allergy but a private group and Will’s help and attention made this easy for us.
