Catering in Utah

#27: Rubadue's Saucey Skillet - Food Trucks, Catering, & Hospital Food


Carl Rubadue has spent over 40 years in the food business, so you can say he’s been around the block here in Utah and around the food scene. He got his start at the Mariposa restaurant at Deer Valley resort in 1981. He’s since worked for a variety of resorts and catering services, cutting his teeth in kitchens all across the Western US.

A few years ago, Carl Rubadue started his own catering service — Rubadue’s Saucey Skillet. If it sounds familiar, it's probably because you’ve seen his food trucks around Salt Lake Valley or Park City. Saucey Skillet's food truck can be found at "Food Truck Thursdays" at the Gallivan Center, the Utah Beer Festival, or the Twilight Concert Series, and a variety of other places around the state.

In addition to his catering and food truck business, Carl offers cooking lessons through Saucey Skillet Academy.

On today's program we talk with Carl Rubadue about the growth Utah is seeing in its food scene, his time as executive chef of the University of Utah hospital, and his latest venture in food -- a kitchen no wheels. Tune in.
