If you live near a Boudin bakery and love real sourdough - head's up! Boudin now (and probably for quite a while, but I've been out of touch) has a frequency-buyers reward card. If you grab one and register it before the end of December (EEP!), they're thanking you with one FREE one-pound loaf every month for thirteen months! That's about a thirty dollar value, folks, just for signing up for their card!
...I am a very happy native right now...for me, this is "the" sourdough. Even my own doesn't come anywhere close to their chewy sweet-and-sour masterpiece...it's good just to eat, but even better used to sop up the broth of your favorite soup. And if you're ignoring the diet enough to spread some real butter on it first and then dipping it into, say, a three-heirloom-bean soup flavored with a smoked ham hock and simmered all day in the crock pot?
Well, it just doesn't get much better.
Now quit reading, San Francisco, and go get that card!!!!
