Watch Molly Yeh Make Bagels (To Go With, Um, Blueberry Lox)

When blogger and cookbook author Molly Yeh starts cooking something up in her kitchen, it’s usually cause for celebration. Her food is as colorful as it is flavorful, almost always imbued imbued with a spirit of fun.

So while the bagels Molly’s making in the video below aren’t exactly showstoppers, they are, in fact, meant to accompany a most festive take on a smoked-fish staple: blueberry lox.

And while we would normally refrain from condoning such a strange-sounding approach to smoked fish, with Molly at the counter we feel we’re in more than capable hands. So check out her bagel-making skills here, and then watch as the blueberry lox makes its way into the world.
