Spice Spotlight: Everything Bagel Seasoning
What’s The Story?
David Gussin of Queens, NY says he invented the blend sometime around 1980, when he was cleaning out his bagel shop’s oven. Instead of throwing out all the loose seeds, he wept them into a bin and said “let’s call it ‘everything’ and use it as a new bagel topping.” Customers loved it and the rest is history. While some dispute this origin story, the general public seems unanimous in their love for the blend.
