Hi, we’re Tanja and Jared Whitman and we live in East Nashville, Tennessee. We make our pieces from just about anything we can find. Whether we use the wood as we find it or use special techniques to distress the wood further ourselves, each finished piece is a unique one-of-a-kind that is sure to be a conversation starter whether you are hanging it in your home or in your business. We are always looking for a new challenge and love when a customer comes to us with an idea we’ve never tried. We want each customer to truly feel like they are getting a piece of art that they can say they helped design and create. No two pieces are ever the same as we don’t use many special tools and do most of the work by hand. Because of this, turn around time can sometimes be long (4 to 6 weeks), but we are committed to giving each piece we create our fullest attention throughout the entire process. We are here to answer any questions you might have and look forward to working with you in the near future!
A bohemian/traditional kolache is a Czech/Slovak pastry, similar to a Danish, comprised of a sweet, yeast-based dough with a fruit, poppy seed, or cheese filling.
In the early 1800s, north-central Texas became the new home to many Czech/Slovak immigrants. While these new Texans staked their claim in a new land they continued many of the customs and traditions of their homeland – kolaches being one of them (thankfully!). But they couldn’t leave well enough alone and added their own twist to the recipe, taking the kolache dough and wrapping it around meat (sausage is most common) or stuffing it with a savory filling such as eggs or vegetables, or cheese, and then baking them. While traditionalists will say these aren’t “true” kolaches, we like to call them “Tex-Czech” kolaches!
Over the years, visitors to these small Texas towns couldn’t get enough of these tasty treats and kolache shops began popping up all over the state. Today, kolaches are a breakfast/snack mainstay throughout Texas and, over the last several years, outside of the Lone Star State as well. Yeast Nashville is bringing that tradition to a new home right here in Nashville!
Whether it’s a Bohemian or Tex-Czech, kolaches are a tasty way to start your day and a nice little snack anytime!
