The area’s newest culinary experience is officially opening its “doors” on June 14 at the Food Truck Depot in Delaware.
It’s “The Swimming Hen,” a new mobile food happening owned by three brothers and featuring the cuisine of chef Jason Compton. According to the company website, Compton “…attended public school in both Westerville and Worthington, and then followed his passions to Scottsdale, Arizona where he graduated with a degree in Culinary Arts and Business Management from Le Cordon Bleu in Scottsdale. Following graduation, Jason returned to Columbus where he began his culinary journey.”
The main fare at the food truck will be by the piece, half, or whole fried chicken served in either Crispy or Nashville Hot style. Side dishes, another key part of the menu, include collard greens, potato salad, hand cut fries, and corn bread with honey butter.
