Kosher Dill Pickles
We're Linda and Steve, an American couple who moved to Rome in 1999 to open The Beehive Hostel. We've always baked and made bread & bagels for the small cafe in our hostel. Having found ourselves with few to no guests recently and with lots of time on our hands during the Covid disaster, we decided to pull a "pandemic-pivot." What started as an Instagram post offering to make our bagels by special order and thinking we might get a few orders here and there, instead exploded, both in demand and in positive responses. About three weeks after that initial post, we hit 1000 bagels sold and decided The Beehive would become beds AND bagels!
About our bagels
We make artisanal bagels in the old-fashioned, NY style. They're hand-rolled & shaped, cold-proofed for at least 12 hours, boiled, topped and then baked. We're bagel purists and don't use preservatives, additives, colorings, animal products or anything that deviates from traditional ingredients. And Steve - having grown up on the East Coast in a Jewish family - takes his bagels very seriously!
