Why Homemade Bagels?

For three years I was a baker for an authentic, "New York style" bagel bakery.  During this time I became quite use to enjoying authentic hot fresh bagels.  However, the bagel shop merged with a larger chain that steamed their bagels.  Steamed bagels taste more like an air filled roll.  They are nothing like the traditional bagels I used to bake and there were no other authentic bagel bakeries around.

So after years of settling for steamed bagels, I decided to take matters into my own hands.  After a few months of trial and error, I successfully figured out a way to bake professional quality, authentic style bagels in my home oven. I slowly began figuring out how to make all of the bagel varieties I enjoy.  So now anytime I crave a fresh, authentic style bagel, I just need a little time and a few ingredients!
