About Daniela Trapani

Daniela Trapani is the creator of @FlourGirlBread, a small home-baking business in Toronto, Canada, focusing on sourdough bread and related products. Daniela’s culinary passion started young, learning from her Sicilian family by sitting on the kitchen counter to watch her mother cook, helping her grandmother canning and preserving tomato sauce, and learning how to bake Italian pastries and baked goods from her aunt. While mostly self-taught, she recently became enrolled in the Baking and Culinary Arts program at George Brown College. Daniela is a recipe tester for Leite’s Culinaria and has tested recipes for other cookbook authors, including Once Upon A Chef by Jenn Segal.

Sourdough Bagels

The pleasing smack of sourdough was seemingly made to be melded with the awesomely chewy denseness of bagels. And it’s SO much easier than you’d expect!
