“… no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation … will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”

Slice a Bagel - Not Yourself!

When we teach in person bagel classes we spend some time teaching people how to slice a bagel safely.  Someone told me that the most common reason for an emergency room visit weekend mornings is when people hurt themselves cutting a bagel.  According to Freakonomics, bagel injuries are the 5th most dangerous kitchen activity!

It recently happened to a friend on the west coast, so we realized it was TIME TO DO SOMETHING!  We could have started a bagel slicing service, or we could have put together a video on the subject.  Of course, we put together a video.

You don't need special tools or bagel guiolotines to safely slice a bagel, just a good knife and some common sense!  Bagel cuts? Don't let that happen to you!
