What you'll do

Welcome to the only place in Montreal that will teach you how to make Montreal bagels! 800+ 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!

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 combines deep baking expertise with an unparalleled presence as he crafts a baking experience that everyone who visits Montreal should attend. Our second time joining Will, we shared the experience with our family and it was a hit. A staple of any Montreal visit!

Love love love!!! I got to make 3 delicious bagels and enjoyed the company of amazing people. Will is a great speaker instructing us through the whole process. He would even give advice as I made my own bagels. I would definitely recommend going when other people are also taking the class. Listening to the stories of strangers was very interesting!! I enjoyed the company of strangers as well as Will. I now feel confident in making my own bagels at home!! But we'll have to see how successful I can be without his guidance.

Fun and hands-on while also still low key. Very great class! Learned a bit of bagel making theory, had great conversation, made, and ate delicious bagels.

We are pizza bakers and want to add bagels to our bakery. The course was very informative without getting too technical. Fun and informative

This was an absolutely excellent experience! Will was hilarious and a great teacher. The bagels were also delicious and I feel like I'll be able to make them again. I highly recommend this!
