The Parish executive chef Travis Peter's cuisine reigned supreme at the 2017 Iron Chef Tucson and Culinary experience on Saturday.
Peters faced off against Mama Louisa's executive chef Michael Elefante. While both chefs are talented, Peters demonstrated he had the upper hand with the secret ingredient, peaches.
The stone fruit popular in Georgia has made various appearances on the Parish's menus: lightly pickled in the BBQ Tail Confit, fermented in the Peach, Saffron, & Chipotle Hot Sauce, and smoked in maple syrup in the Fried Chicken Wings And Waffle.

The word on the street is that The Parish will introduce all or most of the items that helped contribute to the win into the restaurant for a limited time.
