Chewy Bagels - the kind you have on the East Coast!

Soft Pretzels - so much better than the mall!

These favorite breads are a study in contrast--one is soft and tender, the other firm and chewy. This class is the perfect way to learn how your choice of flours and how you handle the dough can turn the same list of ingredients into such different breads!
