Our Story

TheRocketOven_Portrait_032_B&W

 

 

 

The Rocket Oven is an Airstream style trailer run by husband and wife team, George and Tori. The concept is born from the pandemic, a love of good food and wanting to work together to share our passion.

George is a trained chef and has run George’s Kitchen for nearly a decade building up a base of long-standing clients. Tori has a background in teaching and management consulting.

However, the pandemic meant George’s business disappeared overnight. Not to be deterred, the two of us with newborn Isabella in tow, came up with a simple business plan: deliver food boxes locally to respond to the demand for groceries. This was a great success but was never set up to be long term. We have always wanted to start a venture as a family so now seemed like the perfect opportunity.

This ignited a flame and The Rocket Oven was born!

We have a passion for fresh, locally-sourced, honest food, and have taken to the streets of Bucks in an Airstream style trailer so we can share what we love doing with everyone!

Our Food

Our food ethos is simple: fresh, local and honest. These principles – and our amazing flatbreads – are the key ingredients to everything we make!

We specialise in making homemade flatbreads using our own dough recipe so they are soft and fluffy.  These discs are stuffed with anything from herbed falafel, tzatziki and sumac onions to slow-roasted shoulder of lamb gyros with a parsley and tomato salsa and roasted garlic mayonnaise.

A fancy flatbread is nothing without a perfect SIDEKICK! Our signature dish is Rocket Fries: cheese fondue skin-on fries with jalapeño relish and crispy onions. Check out our showcase menu to tantalise your tastebuds even more.

The Rocket Route

The Rocket Oven has recently stopped  serving from The Pheasant in Chesham. We are still available for public / private hire and pop-ups so please let us know if you are interested in hiring us.

We are planning on having a Rocket Route in the New Year so let us know if you'd be keen to see us pop-up at your venue.
