Not-quite-baked sourdough bread for shipping?

Kato | Jan 11, 200406:47 PM     6

My friend in NYC wants me to ship some 'unbaked' sourdough bread to her. She says that in Hawaii she was used to finding sourdough bread in the refrigerated section of her grocery store. The bread was pale (just like brown and serve rolls) and would just need heating for 10 minutes in an oven to be ready. Has anyone seen any such thing in these parts? I've only seen regular bread dough in the frozen cases at my Cala in SF. There was no mention on Boudin's or the French Bread Company (Columbo, Parisian, and Toscano brands) web sites.

She does plan on posting on the Outer Boroughs section to see if she can buy any there, but thinks it unlikely that she'll find any. I have visions of her receiving a bursting package from me but she assures me that it's too darn cold out there for anything to 'rise' along the way.
