CHESTER — No need to worry about the weather for Sunday, May 7. We already have the Forecast: Great Bagels! All you’ll need to do is come to Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek (CBSRZ) in Chester at 11:30 a.m. that morning for Bagels & Bagels with Sam Kantrow. Our favorite local weatherman from Channel 8 will be introducing us to the secrets of making great bagels. This very special event is open to the public.
Kantrow will begin with a bagel-making demonstration, then allow us all to try our hands at adding our own special touches (sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion, garlic, salt) to a bagel that will then be popped in the oven for the final stage of bagel making. While they all bake, attendees will be able to indulge themselves on already finished bagels with all the trimmings –lox, whitefish salad, you name it. At the end of the session, each person will leave with a freshly-baked bagel to show off (or eat).
The fee for the event is $20. Those interested in delving even deeper into the mysteries of bagel making can avail themselves of the Sous Chef opportunity with a donation of $36. These individuals can join Kantrow in the kitchen and learn the bagel baking business from beginning to end. This opportunity is limited to 18 people because of the size of the kitchen.
Space will be filling up quickly so make your reservation soon by visiting www.cbsrz.org or call the CBSRZ office at 860-526-8920. Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek is located at 55 East King Highway, Chester, Connecticut.
