New York Bakery Co. was started by New York native Broney Gadman, who wanted to
share his love of authentic American bagels. Gadman was clear on the difference
between mass-produced factory bagels and 'the real thing', he'd say: “you need
good teeth” to eat hand-rolled, boiled and baked bagels.
In the US, bagels initially emerged with flavours inspired by breakfast and
dessert, such as honey, cinnamon and blueberry, but Gadman wanted to strip it back
to basics and create a more neutral bagel he believed Americans wanted. He was
passionate about this and one other thing - authenticity. He started working in
baking in the 1980s, coming to the UK in the 1990s with a passion for good food, on
the table fast, just like in NYC. Gadman wanted to bring a taste of New York to the
UK and so, New York Bakery Co. was born.
At NYBC we live out the Gadman legacy and make our bagels the authentic way – boiled
then baked, for a true NY chew. Like the best bagel shops and delis in New York, our
bagels are shaped into rounds, then dropped in boiling water before being moved to the
oven for the final baking. Our bagels are stone-baked which gives better crust and
colour, helping seal in that all important texture. These techniques take more time,
but they're the only way to make hearty, chewy bagels with soft insides – we go the
extra mile for our bagels.
Our true NY style bagels bring you the flavours of the city, ready for your breakfast,
brunch and lunch creations. Pile The Original with classic cream cheese and salmon or
top our Sesame Bagel with scrambled eggs and bacon. Cinnamon & Raisin means breakfast
in New York - add fruit or a nutty spread for quick sweet bite. We use the best
ingredients in our bagels, with no artificial colours or flavours.
New Yorkers know what they want in a bagel and so do we
