About Us


Two Flames is a gourmet food that is designed on a fusion of popular New Zealand cuisines & traditional foods. Ranging from Hangi, fry bread, kaangawaruwaru, to raw fish salad, mainese salad, and BBQ spit roasted & smoked foods.

We endeavour to use native vegetation, NZ products, meats, and seafood.
Our signature product is the 'Float' (fry bread stuffed with something absolutely delicious!). The floats on our menu are authentic and designed by us. 
Two Flames offer a catering service. See our catering page for more information.

If you see us at an event, come have a korero with us. Keep an eye on our event page in our website, or check us out on facebook: Smoke 'N' Float Facebook

Our Background

What started off as a UCOL streetfood assignment in 2017, became a business called Smoke N Float. 

I was inspired to name it Smoke N Float after my father and grandmother.

My father taught me to smoke foods from a young age and my grandmother taught me to cook fry breads when I was a child. My cousins and I came to call them 'floats' because they would float to the surface of the oil. 

2018 Stewart (partner at the time) became director with me and together we worked, building on the foundation of Smoke N Float. We have since hosted many Food events and catered multiple weddings, corporate functions, & birthdays. 

In 2020, we changed the business name to Two Flames. Two Flames represents two styles of cooking that our business will undertake: BBQ Smoke/flame cooking & Traditional Hangi cooking. We also chose it because it represents us: our bond with our family, our marriage to each other, and our love for the people.
