Steven flew to Montreal recently for the launch of the French edition of Planete Barbecue. Along the way he found the best bagels in Montreal–hot and smoky from the wood-burning oven at the legendary Fairmount Bagel.
Montreal bagels are unique in the annals of Jewish bread, and are simultaneously moister, chewier, and sweeter than their American counterparts. They quickly become addictive.
