Today: Adam Allison of SuperTruck
Though he was born in Alabama and raised in Philadelphia, Adam Allison has spent the past 22 years in Phoenix. He's been working in kitchens since age 15, and his résumé includes time at Skeptical Chymist in Scottsdale before he ventured into the food truck scene as chef/owner of the Frank., United Steaks of Cheese, and Rounders food trucks. He's since sold those mobile businesses, though he's still in the street food game as executive chef of the SuperFarm SuperTruck. Allison's food takes inspiration from everything from Southern to Southwestern fare, but the bottom line is this: "Food is a bond that keep generations together."
