My name is Tom & I am Uncle Bagel.

It all began in 2014 when due to to ill health I had to take a year off work. During this time I faced many painful and difficult challenges. My sister suggested I start baking bagels, and it was baking that helped me during my darkest moments. My niece and nephew called me Uncle Bagel when I gave them my home baked creations, and so it began.

Life gave me bagels, and in the spirit of being in the flow, I went with what life gave me. Uncle Bagel is the story of turning adversity into a blessing. I love bagels. They really do work miracles.
