Alan Cumming and Bross Bagels reveal ‘holesome’ collaboration

Alan Cumming Bagel

Hollywood star and Scottish actor Alan Cumming has joined forces with Bross Bagels to create a signature vegan snack, just in time for Edinburgh International Festival.

The ‘Holesome Cumming’ vegan bagel will go on sale from 4th August and include Macsween’s vegan haggis, beef tomato, smoked Applewood vegan cheese, latke, pickled red onions, and chilli mayo.

“Embodying Alan in bagel-form has been a massive challenge – we had to get it exactly right: sassy but vulnerable, complex but compelling, acerbic but aromatic. We totally ran out of caraway seeds! But I believe your first bite of this bagel will taste almost as delicious as if you were biting the taut left buttock of the man himself”, quipped Bross Bagels founder Larah ‘Mama’ Bross.

“I have performed for world leaders, I have honorary doctorates, I have been on a stamp, people have even tattooed my likeness onto their bodies. But all pales in significance now, being embodied in bagel-form really takes the biscuit”, Cumming adds.

Alan Cumming is starring in Burn at The King’s Theatre from 4th to 10th August, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
