Family

HEY LISTEN! I am Ben Carter aka, The Southern Fried Chef.  To my family of five little ones, I’m “daddy” and to one amazing wife, “Bennie Buns.”  Growing up in North Texas as the older of two boys, I started the way most chefs do, in the family kitchen!

Soldier

After high school I tried college, after two semesters of stinking out at remedial math, I knew it wasn’t for me! So, I did what any logical college dropout would do, I shook hands with UNCLE SAM for a vacation to basic training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. For the next four years I proudly served while longing for the days of being back home, experimenting in the family kitchen.

Le Cordon Bleu

Fast forward a few years, and a couple children later, I walk the stage as a graduate of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school (shout out to Chefs Roxy and Shelby).

Skillset

One year later, I am holding the keys to the space in Canton that will become Buttermilk’s and the beginning of “The Southern Fried Chef.”

Chef

Four and a half years of preparing southern favorites for such a quaint east Texas town, has been a dream come true. Now, I want to share my love of humble foods with each of you!

I hope you will find the Southern Fried Chef a place to find recipes, connect with the simplicity of life, and a way to slow down and enjoy our universal language, FOOD!
