About:

There's nothing like a great, chewy bagel for starting your day off right. The only thing better would be…a great, chewy bagel that you made yourself with delicious local ingredients! Join instructor Jeff Mao for a hands-on workshop that will take you through the process, beginning to end - measuring and mixing your dough to portioning and shaping bagels, and finally to boiling and baking. He'll even touch on some basic bread concepts including why bakers weigh their flour, dough hydration, and why bagels have holes! During this 3-hour workshop, you'll craft your perfect bagel using Maine Grains flour and mix-ins/toppings (blueberries, cheese, and spices, oh my!) from local producers - and even mix your own flavored cream cheese to top it all off. And, of course, you'll have a chance to eat one (or more!) of your bagel creations before the end of class.

We'll provide all the ingredients, materials and equipment, plus recipe sheets and product lists to take home. Your ticket also includes a drink of your choosing in the Tasting Room after the workshop.
