Frequent baker and Food Guy Greg Patent complains about his fellow locked-down bakers buying up all the flour in March and April 2020. "Sounds like the flour was coming by Conestoga wagon," says Food Guy Jon Jackson.

Nancy Silverton's recipe for sourdough bagels comes from her classic book, Breads From The La Brea Bakery. Food Guy and "Baking Wizard" Greg Patent doesn't rely on Silverton's beloved recipe to satisfy just his summertime bagel-baking jones. He even uses a sourdough starter begun years ago following Silverton's in-depth instructions.
