When Chef Skverky said Lactobacillus Sanfranciscensis is what gave Boudin's bread it's unique sourdough flavor, I thought he was joking. Sanfranciscensis = San Francisco. But no, he wasn't joking. Lactobacillus Sanfranciscensis is a kind of lactic acid bacteria that can only be found in San Francisco, thus giving Boudin's origins in San Francisco a new meaning.
I've always loved sourdough bread, especially the unique flavor of the Boudin sourdough. Now I know what gives Boudin its one-of-a-kind flavor: Lactobacillus Sanfranciscensis
Chef Skverky was super to excited to share with my blogger friends and I the new grilled cheese menu items featured on the Boudin SF menu. He shared that it is his goal, as well as all Boudin restaurants, to have the first bite is as good as the last bite.

Hubby, my kids, and I were able to bite, bite, bite through all the yummy grilled cheese variations.
THE GREAT GRILLED CHEESE
Havarti & sharp cheddar melted to perfection, Parmesan-crusted sliced sourdough
GRILLED BRIE WITH APPLES & FIG JAM
Brie, Havarti, sliced apples, fig jam, Parmesan-crusted multigrain bread
JALAPEÑO GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHCheddar Cheese on Jalapeño cheddar loaf
So, which one was my favorite? It is hard to choose. They were all very delicious! The Great Grilled Cheese is a classic with its warm goodness. I can see myself craving the sweet and savory flavors of the brie and apple grilled cheese. But the jalapeño grilled cheese appealed to my love of all things spicy. Depending on my mood and cravings, I could see all of these on my plate!
But if I had to choose one...
