Mama Bross gets festive

by Larah Bross | 20 Nov 2018

Hi Bagel Lovers,

Mama Bross here, and I can’t believe it’s November already. Is it just me or did this year skip a month or two? I mean does anyone actually remember September happening? Or March? I’m pretty sure we didn’t have a March in 2018. The month of March is to the Calendar year what Tuesday is to the days of a week…………… utterly pointless and completely forgettable…

So it’s festive season and beautiful Edinburgh has put on her Christmas party dress. It’s like Tinkerbell threw up over Hogwarts out there. The German Christmas Market is now up and running, (presumably making the most of it before Brexit kicks in). The air is thick with mulled wine, panic buying and bewilderment as people try to understand how they just got conned out of £30 for a wooden tie.

For me, I always get very reflective at this time of year. I cannot believe the journey I’ve been on. Less than 2 years ago I was a humble comedian/actress/ documentary maker  ok maybe not so humble. Now I’m the bagel lady. People actually call me that… to my face!……………………….. Last week, one of my kid’s friends asked her if I knew the gingerbread man? The Bagel Lady makes me sound like a kind of edible Michelin Mum.

 But I will embrace this new nickname. I’ve been called worse. I have a Jewish mother after all so I’m pretty thick skinned.   as my Jewish mother likes to constantly remind me………………………… except when she says thick-skinned, she means fat, so bagel lady is actually a vast improvement……………………….. and being the bagel lady does not mean I have to put my previous show-biz career away entirely.

Our brand new online advert is up and ready and I think you’ll all agree that the entertainment industry is a far sadder place as a consequence of my conversion to Bagelism.

In other news……………………….. we have an early Xmas present for you.

Let me ask you this, what would make our Leith store even better for our customers? 

Now I know what you’re going to say… you’re going to say – nothing Mama Bross…. Bagel Lady…. whatever your name is………………………… as far as bagel dispensaries go you’ve pretty much nailed it! and I would agree with you except we’ve only gone and now opened upstairs!… which has enough seating for 30 people comfortably! ………………………… know!… Right?……….I’ll give you a moment to just take it all in but Happy Hanukah,

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a massive Mazel-Tov. No longer do you have to eat your bagels out in the chilly, winter cold of Leith Walk but sit leisurely in our warm, snug dining area and fill your festive hole till your tinsel tummy is content.

So my bagel lovers, make sure you come check us out while out doing your shopping in either of our stores and stay tuned for more exciting stuff coming at you very soon from Bross Bagels. I need to go now to do some gift shopping myself.    and I’m thinking lucky Papa Bross might actually really suit a wooden tie this year…

Mama Bross

Mama Bross gets festive
