Do you know what BAGEL is? Have you taste the New York and New Jersey style bagels?
A Bagel is a bread product, traditionally shaped by hand into the form of a ring. It is often topped with seeds baked on the outer crust, with the traditional ones sesame seeds. Some also may have salts prinkled on their surface, and there are also a number of different dough types such as whole-grain or rye.
A New York City experience would not be complete without having one of its bagels from the local bakers. Along with the towering Manhattan skyline that includes the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, the bagel has become an icon that contributes to the rich heritage not only of the city, but of the entire state. You may also try the assorted hand-made bagels, pizza rolls, kaiser buns and oatmeal bread.
Now, you need not travel to the Big Apple to have a bite of the New York bagel experience. Bakersville offers New York style bagels that focused on producing the finest breads and pastries that not only taste good, but also promote good health among those who eat their products on a regular basis. Comprised of professionals with backgrounds not only in baking and pastries but also in the culinary field, the group went through hours of painstaking product development to ensure that the final product they turn out would have the perfect balance of texture and taste. They initially offer these New York style bagels in plain, whole wheat, savory onion, roasted garlic, and cinnamon raisin. All bagels are made without eggs and milk, which should please those of you who are lactose-intolerant. They are also sweetened with honey instead of the traditional sugar, making it ideal for people with diabetes or high blood sugar. Weight watchers will love the fact that no oil is added to them as well. And more importantly, the art of making a bagel is retained as each one of these babies are hand-made, still arguably the best way to make bagels anywhere in the world.
Bakersville also takes pride in the fact that their breads (especially for the non-flavored variants) use only the freshest and healthiest ingredients for their products. When recipes for some types of bread call for oil, they use canola oil, which contains low amounts of saturated fat and are widely accepted to promote lower blood pressure.
Bakersville Boulangerie & Patisserie started with photographer turned chef Marco Abesamis’ love for bread, artisan and panaderya style alike. Bread and pastry making became an instant passion the moment he took bread and pastry classes with world renowned chef ernesto babaran as instructor. His entry into the industry was with NY Style plain and savory flavoured bagels, and a variety of sweet flavoured ones.
