I Learned How To Make Montreal Bagels At St-Viateur & It's Way Harder Than You'd Think
Bagel-making is no cakewalk.
As someone who has consumed countless Montreal bagels, I'd never quite appreciated the art of bagel-making. That is until I stepped into the legendary St-Viateur Bagel Shop as a 'dough-eyed' novice and tried my hand under the watchful eye of co-owner Vince Morena.
Armed with nothing but the hubris of a few home-baking sessions, I hoped to crack the code of the iconic Montreal food by learning from the master himself. But going from bagel bystander to baker is a feat that makes kneading a loaf of bread feel like child's play.
