“I can say, without doubt, that during the course of the ‘Armand kook kaal’ tour across South Africa and Namibia, that Petronella Catering in Port Elizabeth has been my absolute highlight to work with. Not only did they execute every task as desired, but elevated the overall success of the evenings.”

“Petronella Catering was asked to cater for the visit of the International Chaine des Rotisseurs Floating Assemblage during their stop in Port Elizabeth in February 2017. Their brief was contemporary South African Cuisine. Annelie and her team produced a menu of note, so much so that to date that luncheon is still considered one of the highlights of the last decade.”

Sereni T had the pleasure of working with Annelie from Petronellas Catering at the Heltasa 2018 conference. Four hundred thirty delegates attended the 3-day conference that included 72 special dietary requirements.  The theme for the gala event was 50 shades of blue, and the desert …………was a show stopper. Annelie attended to all our requests, and I highly recommend her to elevate any special occasion.

“Wow! What a find!

The quality of her food, as well as her presentation, is nothing short of amazing. 

A case in point was the Isuzu Motors South Africa Corporate Launch in 2018, where she catered for all our VIP guests. Every time we have had the fortune to use Annelie and Petronella Caterers, our clients and their guests have absolutely raved about the food!”

“Partnering with Petronella catering on the Volkswagen South Africa 30th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Literacy Conference in 2019, we experienced the utmost professionalism and the most amazing food. 

The team went out of their way to work within the very short timeframes to create magic. We will definitely be using them soon.”
