Life & Style
I cook, I read, I watch television. After watching Somebody Feed Phil, he tasted Montreal bagels. I remembered having bagels in Montreal maybe two decades ago. They look like bagels because they have a hole in the middle, but they’re bigger around and thinner. It was at a place called St-Viateur. I had that bagel as part of a corned beef sandwich. The corned beef looks like the same corned beef here, but in Montreal they call it smoked meat.
What could I do? I wasn’t going to take the train to Grand Central in New York for bagels to take home. Instead, I ordered a dozen everything bagels. I got them on July 11, ate one, and packaged the rest into the freezer. I am not sure they cost much more than the ones in New York, and certainly were cheaper than the New York bagels and a round trip to Grand Central. They came from Goldbelly and shipping was free. They were delicious.
