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.

Will was a charming, sarcastic host who warmly welcomed us to his beautiful apartment, designed by his girlfriend. I’d recommend this to solo travelers, as you get to meet other folks on their journey and take a reprieve from the classic tourist spots by baking in a local’s home - and the bagels were delicious! If you go to Montreal, skip St. Viateur - go see Will.

If you want to learn to make bagels, in a chic locale…Will is your guy. He is a great teacher and my husband and I really appreciated his dry/sarcastic sense of humor too! Oh, and the bagels were delicious!

Will was completely charming and created a great class for experienced and novice bakers alike. Both adults and teens had a great time. The bagels we made were absolutely delicious— better than the ones we purchased from St. Viateur the day before.
