Peabody Heights Adds Guest Chef to the Tasting Room

Peabody Heights Adds Guest Chef to the Tasting Room

There are plenty of spots in Baltimore to sip or swill brews from a variety of breweries, but there are few in which you can do just that where all those sippable beers are actually produced. Peabody Heights, with its co-op brewing, makes that possible.

However, the one element that Peabody Heights has been missing is food. Bringing food in, or even ordering from local spots, has been an option but snacks weren’t otherwise available. Now, there’s no reason to seek out those other options with Chef Skiz at the helm.

The current food theme at Peabody is to bring street food from various cultures to the table, with an eye on what pairs well with beer.

“The first couple times we did currywurst, which is the most popular street food in Germany, where they do know a little something about beer. The bratwurst we used was sourced from Binkerts German butcher in Rosedale, where they've been making authentic German sausages for 30 years. I made the curry ketchup myself,” said Chef Skiz.

In addition to internationally popular food, other more locally popular dishes have been incorporated as well.

“We have also done chili, pulled pork sandwiches, as well as mac n cheese for the kids,” Skiz continued.

As a private chef who does a lot of pop-ups, supper clubs, and special events, as well as cooking classes, and who has worked as an executive chef at The Capitol Skyline Hotel in DC where he devised a complete international menu, Chef Skiz hopes to add other options to the German and American-styled food for future menus.

“Once the weather gets nicer we plan on using a grill more, which will also expand the kinds of food we can provide. As my expertise is Asian food, I hope to try to make all kinds of different Asian appetizers, such as skewers, for future events.”

Chef Skiz is the author of Rice & Curry: Sri Lankan Home Cooking, and was also featured on No Reservations, taking Anthony Bourdain to Sri Lanka.

Stop by the brewery on Fridays from 5–9 PM or Saturdays from 11 AM–4 PM to grab a fresh pint and some grub. Peabody Heights is located at 401 E 30th Street.
