What is bagel?

Bagel is a bread product originating in Jewish communities of Poland, that was continued to be made even after they immigrated to the US where it became famous and popular. In some parts of the USA and Great Britain nowadays bagel is a signature food, just like “burek” in our country. In Bagel Бејгл bakery delicious sandwiches are made, and the process of making this pastry is very specific. It is made from high-protein flour and is shaped by hand in a special way, so that  proteins develop within the dough itself. The dough is left sit and grow from 12-18 hours at 4C temperature. It is bolied first, then baked, which adds to bagel’s specific and unique taste. Bagel is made of selected type of home-made flour, and, other sides are chosen from fresh and quality ingredients.

NGO Atina is the Association of Citizens for Combating Human Trafficking and all Forms of Gender-Based Violence.
