Our Master Baker

Since apprenticing with former Boudin owner “Papa Steve” Giraudo at 17, Master Baker Fernando Padilla has lovingly preserved Boudin’s breadmaking traditions for over 29 years. On his role in continuing the Boudin legacy, Fernando says: “Like Papa Steve, I’m just another baker.” The modest and talented Fernando leads a team of 20 bakers at our 10th Avenue bakery and 18 bakers at our Flagship location, Boudin at the Wharf.
