The origin of bagel and lox

 

Bagel, Schmagel (with a side of Lox)

Today America celebrates National Bagels and Lox Day, and I, living in London as I do, am suddenly very homesick for New York. While you can get some rather nice bagels here- on Brick Lane, or at Mr Bagel’s in Dalston – London bagels just don’t seem to measure up to the great New York bagel. I am certainly not the only person to have noticed this disparity and been confused by it. Both cities have large Jewish populations with long histories. Challah bread here is no less sweetly tasty than Challah in New York, so what is the problem? Several people I know put it down to the difference between New York’s famously delicious tap water and London’s over-chlorinated version of same. This may well be true. After all, bagels are boiled before they’re baked
