Cooking Class - Handmade Bagel Brunch

Homemade bagels, cream cheese, and smoked salmon? There's no better way to start the day!

In this hands-on class, Chef Joseph teaches you how to make crowd-pleasing homemade bagels in a fun, relaxing, and enjoyable brunch atmosphere.

You will learn how to shape, boil, and bake chewy, complex bagels that have a perfectly crackly, thin crust and soft, fluffy interior. Your bagels will be handcrafted to enjoy with all the fixings, including tangy herbed cream and hot smoked salmon. But brunch doesn't end there! You will also enjoy making strawberry basil spritzers, cucumber and dill salad, and cheese blintzes with bright blueberry sauce.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Joseph was amazing! We celebrated my girlfriends birthday and the venue was very cozy and romantic. Joseph gave us easy to follow instructions and allowed us to really cook for ourselves. Not only were his stories wildly entertaining, he also demonstrated a deep knowledge on the food prepared. His prep made cooking very fun and easy! We both had a great time and it was exactly the experience we were hoping for.

Chef Joseph was AMAZING!!! I wondered how all the reviews on Cozymeal were 5 stars, but now I understand. I booked this for a first date and it could not have gone better. Chef Joseph was prepared, thoughtful, and extremely accommodating. We will be taking more classes in the future because we can’t say enough good things about the experience.
