"The way we make our bagel is the same way that they've been made for 100 years."
Irwin Shlafman knows his way around a bagel.
His grandfather started Fairmount Bagel after immigrating to Montreal from his native Russia.
The iconic Montreal bakery is still a family business, and is celebrating its 100th anniversary on Sept. 7, 2019.
In this video, Shlafman explains how Fairmount bagels are made, which he says is “the same way that they’ve been made for 100 years.”
His grandfather had a particular recipe and methods, which have been passed down through the generations.
“We still do them exactly as they were taught to us,” he says.
