Our Story

Nutmeg and Pepper Australia - Catering from Brisbane to the Gold Coast and Beyond. Chef Nade who is a 5 star Chef leads the team at Nutmeg and Pepper to offer unique catering choices and DIY Catering options.

Our StoryOur StoryOur Story
Nutmeg and Pepper is a Unique Catering Company which was developed by Chef Nadene Prior or Chef Nade as she is known.
Chef Nade has been creating food around Australia for over 36 years. Chef Nade is the previous owner of "Prior Home Chefs" in Victoria (which specialised in Bachelor and Bachelorette Cooking), Wahoo Catering in conjunction with Wahoo Charters (A massive game fishing company on the Gold Coast dealing with Corporate and Public Clientele) and under her own name Nadene Prior Catering covering Tweed Heads to Ballina over 15 years.

Nutmeg and Pepper is more about Customising the Catering to each individual Clients needs whether you are corporate or require that personal service or prefer to save money and time and have a DIY Catering option.
All our handcrafted food is made from produce that is locally sourced and Organic (where possible) and the Meat is Hormone Free.
Our Boutique Catering is unique and can be adapted to suit your Event Space... with the DIY Catering option we Create and Deliver so that you save money, you can serve direct from our Catering Boxes as they are garnished and ready to go or Heat and Serve (instructions provided), if you are having the food delivered ahead of time.

Nutmeg and Pepper offer many catering options for you to choose from online or if you prefer a more personalised, custom menu, feel free to phone on: 0403 800010 or email: to speak with Chef Nade direct.

All though we like to keep our numbers to a limit of 250 patrons for our more intimate approach, we do provide DIY Catering for unlimited numbers.

From January 2019 we added our Food Trailer to provide a unique catering experience of a hidden kitchen for off-site catering. Imagine your Wedding Guests being wowed by a trail of wait staff with platters of finger food, seemingly coming from nowhere. For a unique Birthday Party you prepay for the food trailer and your guests are allowed to go up to the trailer for an array of food until sold out. We also have a variety of menu options we can serve from her for an added theatrical experience.

 Nadene Prior from Nutmeg & Pepper did an amazing job for our city office opening event. She was able to cater for 50 for our VIP guests with top quality food on short notice after my caterer got sick. The guest and staff of Cornerstone Law Offices enjoyed the service and the food which was plentiful. Nadene has a great personality and mingled and entertained the guests with her food. Thank you again Nadene, Cornerstone Law Offices will hire your services again. We highly recommend Nutmeg & Pepper. Bob Pillay, Cornerstone Law Offices."

I would recommend Nadine to anyone wanting to make their job of event management easier! Thanks Nadine. Alia Kriel Human Resources Administrator City Venue Management Pty Ltd"

AliaCorporate Client

 I can't thank Nadene enough for her enthusiasm, energy and efficiency in all regards! We had a special birthday party to celebrate 3 family members from around the world who had turned 30, 40, and 60 and she really listened to what we wanted and helped us choose what would work best for us all. Thank you, Nadene! The food was super delicious, beautifully selected and presented and your personal service was really appreciated! I especially loved the decorations of herbs which you brought to enhance the table and we used them all across the coming week! Regards Gay and Family"

GayPrivate Client

 Hi Nadene, Just a quick note to thank you again for your wonderful catering work here today. The food and service were excellent, and you were right - it did allow me to relax and just enjoy partying with my friends. I will certainly be happy to recommend you to others.
