Member Price:

A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 10 students. See our registration policies here and our rules for in-person events here.

Ahhh, bagels. A staple of the breakfast table, bagels also incite discussions on who makes the best ones. Learn how to make your own fresh bagels with Jennifer Altman, who we’re so excited to have back at our classroom! She will walk you through how to make the dough, form it into bagels, boil them, bake them, and eat them! (We doubt you will have little trouble figuring out that last step.) Jennifer will also share some recipes behind a variety of delectable schmears. During class, students will work in small groups to make bagels, but once baked, students will settle into their bagel meal at a communal dinner table. We’ll display the bounty of bagels, shmears, and salad at a buffet area separate from the dining area.


Three styles of bagels: Montreal-style, cinnamon-raisin, 100% whole grain bagels


Lox and Dill Cream Cheese
Roasted Pepper and Walnut
Salted Honey Butter
Lemon-Herb Goat Cheese

We’ll add a seasonal vegetarian salad to complement the dinner spread. And as stomachs have limits, there will be leftover bagels to take home from class!
