Authentic San Francisco Sourdough Making Class Part 1: Managing Your Sourdough Starter

Authentic San Francisco Sourdough Bread Making Class With Boudin Bakery 1849

When it comes to the flavor of a city, you could say that San Francisco tastes like a bite of delicious, chewy Boudin sourdough bread. That’s because the bakery’s wild yeast starter, which bakers have fed with flour and water daily since Isidore Boudin founded the company in 1849, includes the city’s foggy, salt-kissed air.  Keeping that mother dough alive is the most important thing to Master Baker Fernando Padilla, who has been with the company for 40 years.

Padilla will be demonstrating how to turn that starter into something that is more San Francisco than the Golden Gate or Transamerica Pyramid.  This virtual kitchen-to-kitchen workshop will come with an apron, two par-baked Boudin loaves, two flavored butters and a local jam!
