[VIDEO] Meet The Man Behind Montreal's Legendary Fairmount Bagel Shop

"Nestled between shops in a residential neighborhood in French Montreal lies a quiet brownstone building—an old converted house with a wood fired oven in the back. Irwin Shlafman, third-generation owner of famous bagel shop Fairmount Bagel, has “bagels in the blood” but his transition to bakery ownership was not an easy one. His attachment to his grandfather’s way of making wood-fired Montreal bagels is what has helped launch the bakery’s fame but also managed to keep Irwin tied to his family’s roots. Uncover the story behind these iconic bagels." - Wire Walker Studios
