Boudin Bakery at Fisherman's Wharf

Boudin has been making sourdough since 1849, when the Boudin family recipe came into being. Sourdough bread is a perfect collusion between a yeast and a bacterium, producing the bread we've come to associate with San Francisco.

Boudin offers a museum and tour through the baking process, as well as a demonstration bakery window where you can watch bakers in action.

Discover Magazine dispatched a writer to investigate the specific strains used in San Francisco sourdough. Learn more about the science of bread in Biology of . . . Sourdough.
