Catering by Penny Beral

So you are having a party! Maybe I can help?

Catering for a wedding or bar/batmitzvah? Looking for a sympathetic caterer? Talk to me. My catering is not kosher supervised so I understand that we may not be right for each other, but if this is not an issue for you then please, get in touch. Whether it is catering in your home, perhaps the Shabbat lunch, or a complete simcha using kosher meats, fish or vegetarian menus, you will not be disappointed. As well as superb food, I specialise in peace of mind!

Most of my clients come from personal recommendations - people who have themselves appreciated a party which I have prepared. Many come back to me again and again, saying how much they have actually enjoyed their own parties.

Let me cater your party so that you can spend your time with your guests. Whether your celebration is at home, in a marquee or in a hall, you will know that the room is completely ready, all the arrangements are carefully made, the food is expertly prepared and presented, and that nothing has been forgotten.

Remember, as well as superb food I specialise in peace of mind!

Complete peace of mind for the whole event ….

  • I have over 20 years' experience in catering for parties and celebrations
  • My team includes more than 25 regular managers and staff, many of whom have been with me for 10 years or more
  • I am "on call" from the beginning right up to the last moment to help make your day something really special.

I can help you plan the whole party, not just the food. Let me introduce you to and liaise with:

  • Bands and Discotheques
  • Florists and Balloon Arrangers
  • Photographers and Video Film Makers
  • Magicians and Cabaret Artistes
  • Calligraphers (for the invitations and table plan)
  • Marquee hire companies and a wide range of venues

… in fact, everything you need to make your party a complete success.

Planning your Simcha

Rather than having standard menus, I like to plan your celebration day, knowing what is seasonal, taking note of your guests' tastes, and agreeing with you the menu that is just right. More and more of my clients are planning themed menus - please call me so I give you some ideas.

If you are planning a waitress-served formal dinner, a cocktail party, wedding reception, barmitzvah party or an informal buffet, please get in touch. To give you some menu ideas, please visit my web site at We’ll start with a blank sheet of paper and based on your ideas and my experience, put together the simcha that is right for you.

How to choose your caterer

My letterhead says "I specialise in peace of mind" and this is often commented on by clients. Offering my personal attention and with 20 years' experience I am there to guide you with your party. I have catered 100's of functions, this may be your first but hopefully not the last if you put your trust in me.

Party Planning and Event Management

You are invited to take the stress out of party planning!  I may not be catering your event but I can still give you peace of mind! Planning a Wedding or Barmitzvah can seem daunting but it needn't be. With my party planning and event management service I know who to talk to, where to go and how to arrange things.

If you are a busy person looking for something special, I will be your consultant, coordinator, even counsellor and confidante to guide you through planning your big day. As a client, feel free to call me any time, I am always here to help and advise.
