CKS cooks up a storm at the festivals

27 June 07

Not so long ago cooking was hailed as the new rock and roll, but now rock is calling the tunes. The popularity of music festivals has given temporary kitchen specialists like CKS (Container Kitchen Systems) something of the role of the roadie – keeping the show on the road and the stars fed and watered.

"We've had a huge increase in demand for temporary kitchens for these open-air rock shows," says CKS's Mark Kingston. "Lots of them are being used to feed the VIPs and performers who, I guess, want something better than the soggy veggie pies us punters put up with!"

CKS can discuss the specialist requirements of some of the festival chefs (and their customers) before delivering the kitchen so that everything is exactly right. The typical festival kitchen will be fitted out with the very latest kitchen technology - from combi steamers to high-performance air conditioning.

"We can supply a kitchen to feed anything from 60 to 6,000 or even more,"
says Mark Kingston. "As long as we can link up to services, then we're cooking. Quite often its necessary to bring our own power and water."

The standard small 3.8m CKS kitchen includes a serving hatch and sufficient space for two chefs to work comfortably. Capable of producing up to 200 meals per session the kitchen includes a six burner gas oven range, Salamander gas grill, double basket gas fryer, extraction canopy, upright fridge, stainless steel table, hot cupboard, double bowl sink unit, fly killer and lots of other trimmings – and – for festivals CKS put in whatever specialist kit is requested.

If you want to catch a CKS kitchen strutting its stuff this summer then visit than the daddy of all modern festivals - Glastonbury.
