boudin bakery sourdough class

IMG_5913a major san francisco bucket list item was checked off our list last weekend when
we took a “roll with the bakers” sourdough class at the one and only boudin bakery.
whether you’re a local or a visitor, you know about boudin…or you should.
IMG_5971it is a san francisco staple that has been loved over generations.
growing up when i would visit san francisco this was always a stop for
some clam chowder in a sourdough breadbowl, but since living here i’ve seen
that boudin goes way beyond that. it has been in the city since 1849, and even
survived the san francisco earthquake when lady boudin grabbed the famous
sourdough starter from the fire and preserved the mother dough that is still
used today! i love that story and it illustrates the passion and story of this place.
boudin4we took our visitors tay & kenzie down to the flagship location at the wharf
for the class upstairs where you learn all about the process and roll out some little
animal shapes like the ones they make! it was so fun and definitely worth the $20
with the bread you get to take home, and entry to the great museum on the top floor!
IMG_5871IMG_5900^^ you also get a good view of the boudin bakers in the process of
producing all of the heavenly bread (with the best smell in the world)
boudin3here’s our little sourdough teddy bears taking shape ^^

boudin1 so much bread to take with us = best thing! we love our sourdough.
IMG_5869 IMG_5902how cute is this little crab sourdough? ^^
IMG_5909^^ happy boy about to eat lots of bread!
IMG_5915after the class we walked over to be seated for dinner at boudin bistro..
the upstairs restaurant above the cafe below. we love the cafe, but now
that we have tasted the food at the bistro we may never go back. this is
an iconic place to eat in san francisco and perfect for a special occasion!

IMG_5962^^ follow this sign. trust me.
boudin^^ eat lots of bread to begin. don’t be shy.
IMG_5922 do NOT miss this avocado crab roll. we almost missed out because we
thought we’d be
too full for an appetizer, but the chef sent it out and
it was all of our favorite dish. the flavors with balsamic = wow.
IMG_5952the pretty views of the bay out this window made the meal even better!

IMG_5927mussels marniére came to the table that were so flavorful and light ^^
IMG_5930crab, artichoke, and spinach dip with toasted bread is another must.
IMG_5934sourdough is implemented through the menu and you can even
order a burger on sourdough…different and delicious!
IMG_5936 crab cake sandwich for chase ^^
IMG_5943 fish & chips for tay, lightly battered and delish ^^
IMG_5944 IMG_5945 …you can even order sourdough apple pie,
the molten cake, and sourdough beignets…

boudin the meal of all meals to cap off a great visit from tay & kenz!IMG_5965thanks for the fun visit tay & kenz, and thanks boudin
for being our favorite stop every time!! xo

    Is this class only available in The City? I must investigate! I absolutely love Boudin’s and would bring back a loaf or two every time I went back to college in So.Cal. from the Bay Area. Good sourdough did not exist down here back then.

    Those bears are so cute! I was bummed the classes weren’t taking places during the time we were in SF last year or we definitely would’ve taken it! Boudin’s was one of my fave places to eat – the bread was sooo good!

    I’m actually drooling over that food. There are few things in the world that I like more than sourdough bread, so I can’t even wrap my mind around that menu. Also, how cute were those bread bears?! I would never want to eat them!
