The birth of A Class Catering

 One night in 2005 two good friends were enjoying a quiet beer. They were reminiscing about great times in the hospitality industry. The conversation continued to how the industry had changed and the many facets that still needed to move forward to cater for the fast paced lifestyles of today. The night continued as Steve and Martin came to the realisation that they had a special combination to offer. And so A Class Catering was born on the premise of providing a memorable dining experience, including full silver service with your own personal chef and Maitre D with all the little details taken care of for you. Based in Shellharbour, we provide Great food and personal catering service for Weddings, Fine dining dinner parties and celebrations on the NSW South Coast from Wollongong  to Jervis Bay, including Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa, Berry, Kangaroo Valley and Nowra
