I'm WAAAAAYYYY off topic here but I feel I must speak!
As both a native New Yorker and a presently midwestern counterfeit bagel baker, I'm really stuck in the middle!!!!
The newspaper in Minneapolis did an article on how the local bagel shops here measure up to "the real deal". They had actual New York bagel bakers flown in and everything! While I'm not saying they are the same, our store won the contest, the bakers actually said they would take them home and sell them in thier shops... quite a compliment!
