Food Is In The Air

Local Caterers, Simply Yum, were asked to provide breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea to the Love Is In The Air cast and crew which consisted of 50 people.

Owners Kristel and Ivan Risteski were on-site every day with their food van which was able to travel between destinations and supply hot food whenever filming paused.

“It was an amazing experience and exciting to see how the movie was produced,” said Kristel.

“I can’t wait to see it all come together on-screen!”

The couple catered for the whole event and said it was an exciting but also demanding schedule where they had to be ready to serve and flexible with times, often receiving messages late in the evening and changing plans for the next day.

“I was very proud of my husband,” said Kristel.

“He served up amazing meals for 15 days straight and he didn’t cook the same thing twice!”

Each day the cast and crew were given a different themed meal – from Mexican to Asian – and all dietary requirements were catered for.

“It was just the two of us but we had such a great time – most of the filming was done either at Sinclair Bay or Shute Harbour Airport and we had great fun working on the airstrip,” said Kristel.

“It was nice that they sourced so much from local suppliers.

“They said there will be a couple more films coming up here this year – possibly one big one – and we are excited about that too!”
