Chefs Paul Malcolm and Brian Campbell have been instructors at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte for over 10 years. They have earned multiple certifications in culinary arts and in teaching, and have won several medals in competitive culinary competitions. In 2016, they entered the American Culinary Federation’s Culinary Cup Competition, and agreed to start a food truck together if they won. With another gold medal in their collection, Brian and Paul purchased “Tallulah”-a 1959 Airstream Tradewind. Together, they completely remodeled the trailer’s interior, and created a custom kitchen for producing food. After over a year of several bumps, burns, and bruises, Streamline Kitchen debuted in the spring of 2018.
Why choose an Airstream trailer? The chefs wanted to stand out. They wanted to look different than other food trucks in Charlotte, and they knew that people would be drawn to its reflective, rounded exterior. They also love camping with their families. In fact, Brian owns another Airstream that his family takes on cross-country road trips!
Brian and Paul dedicated just as much passion into their menu as they did into building Tallulah. Their “farm-to-trailer” cuisine concept highlights ingredients from local farms and food artisans. They believe that their instructional talents can be used beyond the classroom as they educate the public about where their food comes from and whole-animal utilization. Waste nothing!
Why “Streamline Kitchen”? With decades of experience to pull from, Brian and Paul designed their menu with efficiency in mind. From the moment you order, their intention is to have that tasty food out to you within 5-8 minutes. You can also opt to have a text sent to you when your food is ready, so that you aren’t stuck standing in long lines.
They are so excited to share their knowledge and love of food with you.
Come visit them at the trailer!
