New York City bakeries are returning to the old school method of hand rolling bagels that was abandoned for the machine made overblown bread rings that we have today. 

A true New York bagel tastes nothing like what you're eating today. The original New York bagel is hand rolled, boiled and cooked in a classic rotating tray oven on old fashioned burlap covered boards. This method makes the bagel crisper, and flatter, rather than large and puffy. You will definitely see and taste the difference once you try a bagel that is cooked the old fashioned way.
