Bagels II
I searched everywhere in Athens, Greece for a bagel, but nowhere could I find one! Only Souvlaki lovers, it seems, dominate the food market! So, what could I do? I was craving bagels and cream cheese for months. I just had to have one so I saved the cost of a round-trip ticket back to the States and made my own! It was the first time I had baked bagels, and this recipe did not fail! Well, I might need a bit more practice with the aesthetic appearance of my bagel, but the the taste was perfect! I used stone ground flour that comes from a special mill in Meteora! Next time, I will try mixing flours; 1/2 white, 1/2 yellow, for a bit firmer texture. I will definitely make them again. They are especially good toasted. Maybe I should open a bagel shop here in Athens! What do you think?
