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! 700+ 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, 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.

My mom and I really enjoyed the workshop and the bagels were SO DELICIOUS! Will was personable and made sure to include everyone. Highly recommend this.

Will was such a great host with fantastic humour and a level of experience and expertise that I would only expect from a professional baker. He was very welcoming and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. His instructions were easy to follow and working with 9 people was a breeze even with all the ingredients. I highly recommend anyone who likes bread, bagel, baking, and just generally a chill time with cool people while vibing out to some lo-fi music!

Really nice experience with Will, who is a true master of the bagel-art. His funny and open way makes it easy to feel comfortable and even easier to follow his explanations on how to bake a real montreal bagel. Would definitely recommend this amazing and funny experience to anyone that likes to eat bagels, to learn how to bake them or who is just up for having a fun time! Thanks again Will!

I learned a lot and had fun doing it. Montreal style bagels are very good, and I never thought of just eating bagels straight up, but now I do! And now I know how to make them myself for a good snack or meal! I recommend this class for anyone who likes to makes things themselves, so good!
