Chutneys and marinades
No BBQ would be complete without the right set of marinades and chutney's oils and dipping sauces to add some extra sizzle.
Why not make your own Onion and Chilli Chutney to spice up the veggie burgers and grilled veg?

Experiment with different cooking oils too which can add extra flavour and interest to your BBQ creations. We love Nudo's Olive Oils
- especially the olive oil
with Chilli and the Lemon olive oil
Nudo produces quality olive oils on a small, artisanal farming scale from their groves in Le Marche, Italy.
All Nudo olive oils are first cold press extra virgin and extra tasty too. Delicious.
