In Qld we are blessed to have a mild Winter and there for love to utilise our outdoor BBQ area all year round. But if you can't be bothered with marinating your own ingredients and placing it on the skewers you can always order your favourite skewers through Nutmeg and Pepper Catering.

Spring is already booking up fast and at Nutmeg and Pepper we have a few different Spring Menus to choose from and many bespoke options. If you are holding an event in August to October then you will want to visit our Menus and book in fast... October weekend dates are very sparse and August a late starter in bookings but enquiries are starting to turn into quotes and bookings. Thinking of holding an event in August then you can contact us via phone or email for immediate assistance.
