Our Story

TheRocketOven_Portrait_032_B&W

The Rocket Oven is an Airstream style trailer which is equipped with a tandoor oven and 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, seasonal, local and honest. These principles – and our amazing tandoor, coined The Rocket Oven – are the key ingredients to everything we make!

We specialise in making flatbreads using The Rocket Oven. This style of cooking uses a clay vase that cooks at 300 °C and means that when the flatbreads are slapped against the sides of the oven, they cook quickly and come out beautifully fluffy ready to be gobbled up. These fluffy 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 posh kebab is nothing without a perfect SIDEKICK! Our signature dish is our unique take on Canadian Poutine dubbed "Disco Fries" - a wonderful concoction of skin-on fries, gravy and cheese! Check out our showcase menu to tantalise your tastebuds even more.

This is a showcase menu. A selection of these dishes will be available when we launch.
