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! 600+ 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.

This experience was wonderful!!! Will did an amazing job of making everyone feel relaxed while learning a new skill and a bit about Montreal. The space was beautiful and very clean. Covid measures were also thoughtfully taken and masks were worn the whole time. I would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys a good Montreal bagel and wants something unique to do on their trip!

It was a last minute decision for me to sign up for this and it was the best decision I have made all year. Will has a great sense of humour and is a good teacher. I loved the experience!

Will is an excellent host and teacher! He was very funny and the bagel making process was easy to follow and fun. At the end, we each had 3 delicious bagels to show for our hard work!

Our son signed us up for this after having taken it himself. We had a terrific Montréal morning with our funny and thoughtful chef-tutor Will and had a great breakfast to boot. Not only that but we learned how to make "real" bagels at home easily and deliciously. Everything about the experience was first-rate and we'd recommend it to anyone who likes to cook.

Fantastic workshop! Well thought out pacing and wit makes this educational while entertaining and fun. The very easy to look at host, Will, is playful, and takes it as well as he dishes it out--be sure to ask for it warm, and don't be afraid to let seeds get everywhere! A lovely opportunity to experience some of Montreal's culture, in a brilliantly designed home, with a delicious honey coating. Thanks Will!!
