Classic Clam Chowder and Bread Bowls Kit - 4 Pack

(Customer Reviews)

Boudin Bakery ships its famous clam chowder and sourdough bread bowls nationwide on Goldbelly! It all started when Boudin Bakery had a simple, brilliant idea: they poured their classic Fisherman’s Wharf Clam Chowder into a hollowed round of fresh-baked sourdough. Over many decades, this humble pairing has become world famous, and might well be San Francisco’s most iconic meal.

Each can of delicious Boudin chowder is full of tender California clams, cream, and herbs. Boudin Bakery sourdough is made with locally milled flour, water, salt, and a piece of the original mother dough, which has been used since 1849.

It’s easy to see why the sourdough loaf from Boudin Bakery, San Francisco’s oldest continuously operating business, has been a San Francisco staple since 1849. Established by Isidore Boudin, who started a small bakery to feed the hungry miners flocking to San Francisco during the Gold Rush, the bread bakery has endured as San Francisco has evolved decade after decade. The original wild yeast has been the starter for every Boudin loaf for more than 170 years, making the iconic sourdough bread an unmistakable taste of San Francisco history.

I gave one loaf to my son and one to my daughter. I dreamt about your sour dough bread since I was 8 years old. I am 84 yrs old now. When I saw it advertised I said to my self, " ' I would love to have just one taste of San Francisco sour dough bread again in my life." ' So I ordered your three loaf offer. It is delicious, just like the time so long ago when I had my first taste when we visited San Francisco.
Penelope B. - Boca Raton, FL
Again you delivered the best bread in the world! I could of hand carried it but sending it at this cost stopped me from diving into it as I was flying!!!!!

My first experience with Gold Belly was the very best. I sincerely appreciate "when a plan comes together." Needed San Francisco Sourdough bread for an excellent occasion, it arrived on time, packed with such care, and believe me it was truly delicious. Thank you to Boudin Bakery and to Gold Belly for all I remember from so many years ago enjoying sourdough right at the bakery on Fisherman's Wharf. Love me some Gold Belly!!
