About the Uprising


I have a confession.  I didn’t eat my first bagel until I was 12, and I did it all wrong:  grocery store bagel, toasted, with peanut butter, in Denver.  But it was awesome, and I was hooked.

After leaving Denver I experienced bagel utopia for about 10 years in New York City, and then I moved to Del Ray, a neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.  The local bagels were acceptable, but they didn’t live up to the real thing.  So I set out to fill the void.  Over time and with feedback from carb-loving family and friends, I came up with a recipe that does a pretty good job.  (And, because I knew you’d ask: No.  The secret is not the water.)

I use only five ingredients: flour, yeast, salt, malt, and brown sugar.  On market days, I wake up at 4 AM to boil and bake them, one dozen at a time, giving them some serious chew.  Like traditional bagels, Bagel Uprising bagels aren’t huge: no 800-calorie monsters the size of a hubcap.  And no fancy flavors, either.  Just the classics:

Everything, Sesame, Poppy, Salt & Plain.


Bagel Uprising launched at the Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market in September 2015.  I have enjoyed spending Sunday mornings there with my bagel-loving neighbors ever since.
