Bagel Food Quotes

"A bagel creation that would have my parents turning over in their graves is the oat-bran bagel with blueberries and strawberries. It's a bagel nightmare, an ill-conceived bagel form if there ever was one."
Ed Levine, ‘New York Eats’


"the first printed mention of to be found in the Community Regulations of Kracow, Poland, for the year 1610 which stated that bagels would be given as a gift to any woman in childbirth."
'The Joys of Yiddish' by Leo Rosten


According to John Mariani in 'The Dictionary of American Food and Drink':
"The bagel was first mentioned in American print only in 1932."


“The bagel is a lonely roll to eat all by yourself because in order for the true taste to come out you need your family. One to cut the bagels, one to toast them, one to put on the cream cheese and the lox, one to put them on the table and one to supervise.”
Gertrude Berg (1899-1966)


“The bagel [is] an unsweetened doughnut with rigor mortis.”
Beatrice and Ira Freeman,
'About Bagels', ‘NY Times’ May 22, 1960
