The Nutmeg Project

Cater… Teach… Eat…

Hungry? Let us CATER your next event. Big or Small.

What inspires us?

You of course! Inspiration for the NUTMEG PROJECT came from wanting to feed multiple people while staying true to Jamaican roots and health conscious lifestyle. Jamaican Curry Chicken is loveable; however, the oil that seeps at the top of the pot when it’s MOST yummy is not so healthy. Finding YUM in healthier options, meant creating a fusion. So here we have it, fine, fused and authentic Jamaican inspired dishes from my hands to your mouths. ENJOY!

We’re a local, independent business. We’re proud to be your neighbors, and we’re proud to feed you.


Our Food

Quality ingredients, prepared with care. Send us a message below to learn more about our food project and customized menus.

Learning to cook came from various sources. After college I followed my sister Michelle around the kitchen and got valuable lessons. Michelle Burgher is truly one of the best cooks I know. Her Jamaican food brings nostalgia – delicious is not the word. My sister Colleen is an amazing baker. My Indian-Jamaican father can fast cook any delicious Jamaican meal. But it was mostly my Irish-Black-Jamaican mother who used to cook Sunday dinners. I loved our food projects like making Beef Patties. Inspiration comes also from my Curry puppy and World travel. Bursting with flavors from around the world, my palate is now inspired to cook for everyone, no matter from where.

We Cater, offer Cooking / Spice Lessons and Food Prep. Whether you’re celebrating a special day or just want a night off, let us serve you — it’s what we do best.
