Kneading Conference: Baking NY-Style Bagels the Maine way

July 26 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Sesame Bagels

This workshop is part of the annual Kneading Conference hosted by the Maine Grain Alliance in Skowhegan, Maine. To attend, you must be a registered attendee of the conference.

Join Jeff Mao for a hands-on workshop focused on baking New York-style bagels. We will explore the what makes bagel baking different than most breads, and what really matters when creating this iconic New York bake — it’s not the water. We will learn to hand-roll bagels including how to achieve a smooth shiny crust and creating the signature hole. You’ll gain practical skills to bake bagels at home or in a commercial bakery. The bagels made during the workshop will feature locally produced Maine Grains flour. Experience the unique flavor and quality of our regional grains!

Jeff operates Knead & Nosh, a micro-bakery in Brunswick, Maine. Knead & Nosh produces hand-crafted bagels as well as offers baking and cooking classes with a focus on things made with dough. He is the author of Essential Chinese Hot Pot Cookbook, and is currently working on a bagel cookbook.
