Hard Winter Bagels
PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 Epidemic we are unable to continue making bagels. Last year we moved to using rolled bagel dough from the famous St. Viateur bake shop in Montreal. We are temporarily unable to ship and store frozen bagel dough. We will bring them back and start baking them again as soon as we are able. Thank you for your understanding.
Our time living in Montreal is when we truly understood the makings of a perfect bagel. They need to be handmade, and they must be wood-fired.
Starting in Spring 2017, Hard Winter Bread Company is proud to bring you the authentic, wood-fired taste of handmade bagels. Rolled, boiled and baked before your eyes in our brand new, custom-built, mobile wood-fired oven.
Experts and bagel lovers agree: a live, wood-fired oven, specifically designed for baking at an ultra-high heat, makes all the difference.
When it comes to the texture, flavor, and of course the authenticity, a live wood fire is the secret to a truly Montreal-style bagel.
Here at Hard Winter, we like things that are rustic and slightly unsophisticated, so our bagels aren’t perfect. But then again, they’re not meant to be. Instead, each bagel is a unique creation that offers a taste of the day’s fire. Why complicate things when they can be so simple?
Our bagels are best enjoyed hot and fresh, which is just how you’ll find them when you visit us at the market.
