Chef Dan’s Southern Comfort food truck is owned and operated by the husband and wife duo of Chef Daniel Carter and Allison Luthe Carter. We are always on the truck and managing your catering event to ensure you are getting great food the way our recipes are intended.
Chef Dan has thirty+ years experience in a professional kitchen. He started as a dishwasher while in high school in Greenville, Mississippi, and later attended culinary school at Paul Prudhomme’s in New Orleans. He has since opened the kitchens of various casinos and the Indianapolis downtown Marriott. While cooking for the Colts as the Executive Sous Chef at the Indianapolis Convention and RCA Dome, he also had the opportunity to oversee the meal preparation for President George W. Bush’s inauguration dinner in Washington, D.C. His experience of cooking for a party of two in their own home or 60,000 of President Bush’s closest friends, allows him to bring a creative home cooked menu to the food truck.
We hope you enjoy our food as much as we enjoy preparing it for you!
