Old-school sourdough bread?

Robert Lauriston | Dec 3, 2009 07:54 PM

I thought it would be fun to get some old-fashioned San Francisco sourdough for a crab feed, but was surprised to find that they had none at Berkeley Bowl West, and at Safeway the one brand that was in an old-fashioned paper bag had a plastic bag inside that.

Does anyplace in the East Bay have the real thing, or even an artisan version, or do I just give up and go with Acme Italian? I knew this stuff was nearly extinct, but I didn't know things had gone this far.

Please don't tell me to buy something in a plastic bag and heat it up.
