Sneak Peek at Parish’s House Fermented Hot Sauces and Kimchi

Tucson Foodie
Tomatoes taste best fresh off the vine, but peppers turn magical with time.

Peppers on their own are simple with their flavor and heat. With the help of lactobacillus and a brine solution, the peppers ferment into a tangy hot sauce with marvelously complex flavors. No added vinegar is needed.

At the Parish, co-owner and executive chef Travis Peters isn’t afraid to play around with flavors when it results in something tasty enough to lick off the plate.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of fermented foods,” Peters said. “Kraut, fish sauces, beer, and kimchi are so amazing.”

Travis Peters from The Parish on redneck sushi, life at the goat farm

Arizona Daily Star
It wasn’t a love of long hours, hot kitchens and sharp knives that attracted Travis Peters to life in the restaurant business. He was driven by base desires. He was a hungry kid, and his mother was a lousy cook.

“My mom was a terrible cook. She was just awful, so if we wanted to eat anything outside of her five menu items, we had to come up with it ourselves,” said co-owner and executive chef at The Parish.

hen Chef Travis Peters wants to integrate the flavors of prune, ginger, clove, and nutmeg into a dish, his first thought is whether there’s a doctor in the house.

Encouragingly, for both Peters and his patrons, there’s rarely a time when a doctor isn’t on duty at his Northwest side gastropub.

Dr. Pepper, I presume.

Tucson's Parish joins in Big Easy celebration

Arizona Daily Star
OK, first things first: Nobody really stormed New Orleans' Sazerac Bar in 1949.

Sex. Religion. Politics. Bacon.

Arizona Daily Star
Yeah, the pork product fits right in as one of those polarizing topics. You love it. Or, you hate it. There's no in-between.

Chef Travis Peters became a full-fledged foodie because of bacon.

Peters - one of the owners of new gastropub The Parish, 6453 N. Oracle Road - remembers watching that '60s TV show "Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C." as a 7-year-old. The marine misfit made bacon sprinkled with brown sugar and pepper, and his hard-to-please sergeant declared it the best he ever had. Peters tried that trick and hasn't stopped experimenting with bacon yet, as is obvious from The Parish's menu. Bacon's everywhere - in popcorn; wrapped around frog legs; on the burger, of course; and in its fattier, more decadent incarnation, pork belly.

"It's magical, really," Peters says of the stuff.
