Bagel Extravaganza!--Forty Cafe, DUNKIN' DONUTS , Hana Hana Pastry House, Bagels 'n Beans, Lesson One, Ours Bagel

The word "bagel" comes from the Austrian word "beugal". Tradition has it that back in the 17th century, a Polish king who was a great horseman drove the Turkish army from the gates of Vienna, and his Austrian baker created this "uneven" circular bread to resemble a stirup and celebrate the victory. Today, the bagel has become a commonly-loved food item around the world.
