Our Story

Back in 1986, pursuing a career in the great outdoors Colin and his wife Kirstie were travelling in a their Landrover towing a 4m-long caravan to provide catering for a Toyota commercial in New Zealand’s back-country with the late Barry Crump.

Colin drove around a sweeping corner near Glenorchy and a trestle strapped to the roof flew off. It landed perfectly set up in an adjacent paddock, so the company name ‘Flying Trestles’ was born!

Mobile Kitchens

Our fleet of professional mobile kitchen trucks, “Flying Kitchens”, enable us to operate effectively anywhere in New Zealand providing cuisine to match the highest quality restaurant, in places where nobody else can. We have specially designed kitchen trucks to suit any event, style or function, enabling our chefs to prepare Extraordinary food where you’d least expect it.

Our Flying Kitchens are totally self-contained, equipped with generators, water, gas and waste tanks, walk-in refrigerator, six hobs, gas ovens and dishwashers. This enables us to go anywhere from our bases in Queenstown & Wanaka in The South Island and Auckland in the North Island.

Our Chefs are highly professional and talented with extraordinary repertoire of food knowledge, style and creativity.
