These photos were e-mailed to me and Glenn. My younger son, Joel - father of Naomi and Sasha, made Montreal bagels from the formula in ITJB this weekend. He must have had excellent shaping instruction from his daughters. They look better than most of mine.

The many nice bagel posts lately have spurred me on toward bagel making.    I was excited to see that In The Jewish Bakery has a recipe for Montreal bagels.   I grew up on New York Bagels which had made their way to St. Louis by the 1960s.    It was a revelation when I stopped for a snack in the Ottawa Airport one day to find a bagel that was completely different but quite delicious.   That was almost 20 years ago, and since I stopped working in Canada,  Montreal bagels have been few and far between.   That is set to change.

Ok.   My shaping needs work, but that doesn't interfere with breakfast for lunch. 

These are quick bagels - from mix to plate in around 2 hours, and so not as much flavor as their overnight retarded New York cousins.   But delicious all the same, a tasty treat.

Missing Page!!!

September 9, 2008 - 10:24am -- DakotaRose

Hi!  I just got the book Artisan Breads in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois, but when I got part way through the book I discovered that a page was ripped in half.  I was wondering if anyone else has this book and would be willing to send me the page 131.  It is the last directions for the Montreal Bagels recipe.  I tried going back to the store and told them about it, but they said that they couldn't do anything about it.  That is the only page missing and would just tape in the directions if I can get them.

 Thanks so much in advance.
