Look at him on the right, he just can't wait to get in there and get some hot stuff down his gob. The man outside Crosstown is waiting and looking for the time when his ship comes in..

Everyone loves a soft, warm bread roll, especially after Pesach! None are more popular than the world famous Bagel… or is it Beigel?? Are they the same thing? Read on to find out…

The ‘Bajgiel’ according to the book ‘The Joys of Yiddish, was created in Krakow, Poland in the early 1600’s, and was baked as gift for women in childbirth. This could have been to do with the ‘circle of life’ shape, or, an anatomically correct representation of childbirth! The popularity of the Bajgiel grew quickly, with it becoming a staple of the Slavic diet in the 16th and 17th centuries, and has continued with its popularity in Europe and beyond, most notably, in America where it is estimated that around 5 million Bagels are sold every day!

The word Bajgiel is said to have originated from the word Beygel, which is a Germanic word meaning ring or bracelet. Another possible origin, is from the German word Bügel, which means a round loaf of bread. From a modern perspective, good old Google Translate recognises the word Bajgiel as Dutch, which of course borders Germany so this makes a lot of sense and ties in with the German name theories. Over the years it appears that local languages have simplified the word, or adapted it to form the words we know today – Bagel or Beigel.

The article continues at Yes, I was wondering about that beigel spelling.
Richard Trim: To me a bagel is ua bagel .. but Inmj'm happy to respect other spellings ... just as I am sure that you are as well Lewis. : -)
