Mmmm….Fresh Bread at San Francisco’s Boudin Bakery



There’s something about the smell of freshly made bread. Before you even get there, you can smell it….the freshly made sourdough French bread. The smells flood your senses and you are drawn in as if you were being pulled along. Keep walking, it’s not far…San Francisco’s renowned Boudin Bakery is just ahead.

It started way back in 1849, when the Boudin family opened the original Boudin French Bakery. Just a tiny little bakery, amongst many others in San Francisco, the Boudin Bakery brought something new to the table….a little bit of old world taste. As the story goes, it was the wild yeast that make their bread a little tart. It was that same tartness that brought into existence what is affectionately known today as “San Francisco sourdough French bread”.

Keeping true to the Boudin family heritage, that sourdough recipe is still used to this day. And unbeknown to many, a small portion of the original “mother dough” is used to start each and every day’s batch of sourdough bread.

Something else that makes the Boudin Bakery a place to go…besides the fresh sourdough bread, wonderful clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls, etc….is the fact that they make their bread in all shapes and sizes, right before your very eyes.

There are sourdough turtles, lobsters, crabs, teddy bears, alligators and more. There is even a 5-foot sourdough alligator…try taking that guy for a walk.

So, follow your senses (or your GPS) the next time you are in San Francisco and you’ll be sure to come across the wonder that is the Boudin Bakery.

    Fun to visit for tourists at Pier 39 but we prefer our sourdough from Tartine, acme, semi freddo or a couple dozen neighborhood places :-)
