Soup for the soul is found at Farm Country Soup in Kent
Following in the success of her first take-out restaurant in the Berkshires, soup evangelist Jackie Bergman has opened a second Farm Country Soup take-out in the former Stroble’s Bakery on Kent’s Main St. Bergman, a former nurse and restaurateur, has a passion for making soup and espouses its nurturing possibilities. Her 50-plus recipes are designed to restore and heal. Roasted Eggplant Bergman is “soup to manifest our dreams.” Other soul-warming choices include Bean With Smoked and Roasted Chilies, Couch Potato Gratin, and Tuscan Minestrone.
But there’s more: fresh-baked bread, quiche, frittatas, salads, sides, entrées, condiments, rustic pies, and other artisan baked goods as well as a menu of non-gluten and vegetarian choices. Try the Curried Butternut Squash soup paired with the quiche wedge set atop fresh greens and nestled in a sesame seed bun.
Seating is limited, at one elbow-to-elbow table. Bergman embraces the spirit of connecting people, food, and the land. So soups are prepared in small batches with homemade stock using seasonal ingredients and local products. Several grab-and-go hot soups are available daily: $4.75 for 12 ounces and $6.50 for 16 ounces.
