Sara LaViolette, who owns and operates Yeast Nashville with her husband Bill, says they're offering hot lunch in a bowl Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (those are the only days when the bakery is open until 2 p.m.).
Sadly, we've missed the window for today's offering, which was Buttercup Parmesan Soup, made with buttercup squash, a vegetable hybrid of squash and pumpkin that the team buys from the farmers at Green Door Gourmet.
Thursday the special will be Bacon Cheddar Potato Soup, and on Friday, look for White Bean Chicken Chili. Soup alone is $5, and an even better deal is soup and bread for $6. (The bread accompaniment varies; Sara LaViolette says, it could be a fresh-baked dinner roll or a savory muffin. On Fridays it's usually a slice of Yazoo beer bread.)
Yeast Nashville opens at 7 a.m., and the soup is ready right away, she says. So people are encouraged to grab soup to take away to heat up for a lunch treat.
Meanwhile, Yeast Nashville has added made-from-scratch pies, including pumpkin, apple and chocolate. A whole pie is $20.
The LaViolettes are taking preorders for Thanksgiving pies, and the cutoff is Friday, Nov. 22. They're also offering dinner rolls and possibly some other breads for Thanksgiving preorder. Call them at (615) 678-4592 for details.
