Bagel maven Lauren Groveman from Larchmont, New York visits Julia Child in her kitchen. Groveman demonstrates how to make bagels. Bagels need to be boiled before baking. Groveman adds baking soda and sugar to help brown the bagels during baking. After boiling, Groveman flavors the top and the bottom of the bagels. She bakes the bagels on top of a tile and tosses ice cubes on the bottom of the oven to create steam. She also prepares vegetable cream chesse, smoked salmon and scallions cream cheese and chopped chicken livers to top her home-made bagels.
