The Muriwai Deli is a permanent fixture in the West Auckland community, but it wasn't always that way.

The popular café in the 100-year-old Muriwai Lodge started off with a couple of food trucks getting together. Cameron Steel and his twin brother Boyd launched Double Parked in 2018, condensing a decade of cooking and eating their way around Europe into a changing blackboard menu.

Down the road, their brother Bryce Steel was working with Damian Watson, on Double Shot, a 'coffee and pud' truck with a similar seasonal focus. Cam Steel joins Kathryn Ryan to discuss how they made it through Covid lockdowns and the Auckland floods.
