Looking for the perfect hostess gift for holiday parties? If you’re at Disney California Adventure park, pick up a loaf of Boudin’s famous San Francisco sourdough bread at either Pacific Wharf Café or Boudin’s Bread Cart.
And these aren’t ordinary loaves – they’re adorably shaped like candy canes, Christmas trees, stockings and snowmen. Cost is $5.25-$6.99 (plus tax) and the loaves are available through Jan. 8. The baked-fresh-daily loaves go fast – they sell 250 to 300 a day, says Chef Juan Mendoza at the park’s Boudin Bakery. (Mickey Mouse-shaped loaves are there year-round.) Fun fact: the dough’s only ingredients are unbleached flour, water, salt and a portion of the “mother dough” developed by French baker Isidore Boudin in 1849.
If you don’t eat quickly, it’s best to freeze the loaves and reheat at 375˚F for 10 to 15 minutes, says Chef Mendoza. And they really are delish – Boudin has been making their distinctive sourdough bread in San Francisco since 1849!
