's nothing quite like it San Francisco's French bread By ROBERT IJNDSF.V New York Times Service San Francisco Its taste Is tart, the crust is hard, and it's difficult to eat without shower- ing crumbs all over one's clothes. But to most San Franciscans, he city's sourdough French bread is as popular as its cable cars and judging from sales In bakeries in other ciUes re- cently, it is becoming as pop- ular as San Francisco export as topless dancing, which also started here. Hundreds of pounds of the resMy baked local bread in ong, dark-crusted, torpedo- haped loaves, or fat brown loaves shaped like t discus leave the city before dawn on most mornings in the cargo compartments of jet airliners or in freezer trucks. And soon, the special flavor of the bread may be exported around the nation in test tubes, according to a team of federal scientists who say they've dis- covered that a microscopic "bug" that has been transmit- ted through mounts of bread- batter for more than a century is responsible for its unusual taste. "Our shipments out of the city have gone up at least 50 per cent in the last two said Clifford Catsoulis, an ex- ecutive cf Parisian Bakeries, the city's biggest producer of the bread, recently as the dis- tinctive, fresh aroma of baking bread filled Ms office. Costa Zmay, vice president of Larraburu Bakery, another major sourdough bread produc- er, said: "It's been fantastic. We're (oratory, said he thinks it will 'be feasible soon to export the bacteria which he calls "La- clobacillus San Francisco" so that San Francisco's famous bread can be made any place. "It's Impossible to say with certainty how and where it (the microrganism) originat- Kline said during a re- cent Interview. But he said It apparently had been a genera- tion-to-generation heritage of Bakers here since the middle of last century, when French settlers or Basques from Spain brought their baking know-how and possibly "the bug" as well from Europe. Gold min- ers In California and Alaska some called "sourdoughs" be- cause of their affinity for the bread picked up the tech- nique later. It is essential to understand the history of a loaf of the oread Iji order to understand Kline's thesis. Each day before bakers make more bread, they set aside a small portion of their dough. The next day, they take this dough called a "starter" or 'mother" and mix it with flour, waler and salt for their next baking session, so that it constitutes alrout 11 per cent of the total bailer. Then, before this batch of batter is baked, the bakers again remove TI smalt portion as the next day's "starter." The process goes on and on. The "starter" contains an un- usual strain of yeast that leav- ens the bread, and the "Bacil- us San Francisco." Each day t is transplanted in eort of a chain of perpetual motion. shipping all over the country. It's now available in 15 differ- ent airports, and I don't think there's a major city in the country that doesn't have at least one store or restaurant where you get it." The executives attribute the demand to expatriate San Fran- ciscans who miss tho sharp, crusty bread, but, more Import- antly, to visitors from other cllies who discovered the bread here and want it at home. The most enthusiastic lovers of San Francisco sourdough consider It the first bread in the world, outranking the chewy brioche of Paris, the pumpernickels, ryes and black breads of Eastern Europe and the bagels of New York. Legend has long held that the bread could be made only in San Francisco. I could take you 400 miles south to Los Zmay insisted, "and you'll see can't make it; they can't du- plicate the flavor. It's unique to San Francisco; I feel the fog has a lot to do with it Or may- be it's our temperature, or sometliing that's in the air." However, a Federal microbl- ologist who has been trying for three years to discover the secret of the broad's flavor, at- tributes the distinctive flavor to "a bug" a recently discover- ed species of bacteria that, lit- erally, has been handed down from baker to baker here al- most daily for more than 100 years.
