Peanches, so named for his mother’s pronunciation of peaches, is Chef Pete Peterman’s tribute to his mother and her hearty style of cooking. Taking all his ingredients from Missouri-based farms, Chef Pete plans his menus by the season, honoring the available ingredients and respecting the migratory patterns of wild cornbread. To complement decadent plates of pig cassolet and yardbird, he carefully selects pairings from a roster of local Missouri wines and beers. Known for changing his menu frequently, occasionally in the middle of a dinner shift, Pete maintains a fluid relationship with the dishes he serves, ensuring each bite of parsley dumplings or Mason-jar beet salad is up to his mother’s standards.
