Maybe because this family-owned bakery was founded in 1849, Boudin is one store that kept the flame alive when the rest of the country had forgotten the goodness of real sourdough bread. Boudin's loaves get their chewy texture and slightly sour flavor from a naturally occurring sourdough starter, and they contain no yeast or preservatives. Visitors can observe the work in the baking room through a large window, where long baguettes, breadsticks, and the small rounds (which also double as clam chowder bowls) are molded and baked.
