Spice up your Bagels


When Pablo must bring something to share for his school’s International Day, he considers several items from his family’s bakery. But his mother’s Mexican pan dulce, empanadas, and chango bars don’t do the trick. His father’s bagels and challah bread are appealing, but not quite right either.


Eventually, Pablo decides on a family specialty, Jalapeño Bagels, a joint creation from the cultures of both parents and decides that it is the perfect contribution: “…a mixture of both of you. Just like me.”
