Lady Pirate Products
From the Owner:
Growing up in Southern California and in Spain led me to appreciate food and community. The Spanish or Mediterranean cuisine I was around had a lot of pickled or preserved foods. My grandmother would pickle fresh anchovies in vinegar and parsley, and I learned from my mom how to do it. That was a big influence in my connection with food long before I realized I wanted to be a chef.
I was introduced to fermentation when I was an Executive Chef in Ocean Beach, but it’s when I worked for Ballast Point in Little Italy as the Sous Chef when I really got into fermentation. We started making our own vinegars from wine and beer, fermenting vegetables, and pickling everything. I had climbed the culinary ladder and was ready for a new challenge, so I decided to do Lady Pirate full time. It brings me joy, helps people and it’s so delicious!
The name Lady Pirate is a reference to breaking the mold, becoming an entrepreneur, and charting my own waters. Many pirates were women and LGBTQ+ and they became pirates to feel accepted and live as normal and free. A good deal of pirates started off as buccaneers which is derived from the French word Boucan, “someone who smoked or preserved foods.”
Our mission at Lady Pirate is to educate about the many benefits of fermented foods, probiotics, and gut health, all while making sure every single one of our products taste amazing. We hope to be the treasure you come back for again and again.
Benefits of Fermented Food:
It’s ALL about gut health! The gut, is a group of organs that includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, small intestine, colon, and rectum. Your gut health is vital to your overall health. When you eat fermented foods your gut stays healthy by managing the good bacteria in your gut.
Your gut is known as your “second” brain. By managing your micro-biome you can also manage your anxiety, depression, and serotonin levels. Recent studies have shown 90% of serotonin is made in the gut. Eating fermented foods will literally make you happier.
