We look forward to having you join us for our first event of 2015! We will be hosting a "Breakfast Networking" event at the flagship location of the world famous Boudin Bistro, where bakers continue the tradition started in 1849! For those who plan to attend MPI ACE the day before, we welcome you to another opportunity to meet with your local industry counterparts. For those who don't, what better way to stay engaged in your local hospitality community than to come to this quick breakfast networking event before you head in to the office!
Bistro Boudin: Before Fisherman's Wharf was even on the map, the Boudin French Bakery was making bread for San Franciscans. Bistro Boudin provides great views, including a 30-foot observation window along Jefferson Street, and a glass-walled catwalk suspended directly over the demonstration bakery. Watch as the flour is pumped at high velocity from our on-site silo directly into the mixer, and as the dough is tossed from the mezzanine to the ground floor, where it is hand-finished and baked into nearly 10,000 loaves of fresh sourdough, French, and European hearth breads every day. In the Bakery Museum, guests discover the history of Boudin and the art and science behind the original San Francisco Sourdough through a compelling array of historic photos, artifacts, and interactive exhibits.

: In partnership with East Oakland Community Project, PCMA NCC will be collecting new and gently used books at our February event at Bistro Boudin. A collection bin will be placed at registration for your convenience.
Professional Head Shots: To continue our own tradition started in 2014, we will be offering professional head shots complimentary. It's probably time for some of you to get a real head shot for your LinkedIn profile instead of that cropped picture you pulled off Facebook! East Oakland Community Project
