The Peasant Village: A Legacy of Culinary Excellence
The Peasant Village was founded on April 5, 1995, by Chef Pops Helfer and his son, Chef Jason Helfer. The restaurant’s roots can be traced back to a 1780s cookbook, handed down through the generations, that was found in Chef Pops’ grandmother’s attic. This rich source of inspiration, combined with Chef Jason’s training at the University of Johnson and Wales in Charleston, South Carolina, and his extensive travels around the world, has helped to establish The Peasant Village as one of the premier restaurants in San Angelo.
Chef Jason has been recognized for his culinary expertise, receiving accolades from Southern Living, Texas Highways, and many other publications. He has also been nominated for the title of “Best Restaurant and Deli in San Angelo” on numerous occasions, cementing The Peasant Village’s reputation as a true leader in the culinary arts.
After three decades of success, The Peasant Village is making a change. Starting now, the restaurant will only be open for dinner on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 6pm to 9pm. Despite this change, Chef Jason remains dedicated to bringing the same level of culinary excellence to the people of San Angelo, and he invites you to come and experience the magic of The Peasant Village for yourself.
In addition to dine-in options, The Peasant Village also offers catering services for office lunches, and is available for private parties Monday through Wednesday. With a full bar available during both lunch and dinner, The Peasant Village is the perfect place to celebrate any occasion.
The Peasant Village is a true legacy of culinary excellence, and its rich history and commitment to quality make it a must-visit destination for anyone seeking a truly memorable dining experience. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family, or to host a special event, Chef Jason and the team at The Peasant Village would love to see you soon.
