I have worked with Pineapple Eventworks several times in summer of 2016. We catered to a few off-site weddings of 150 people. My experience with Tina was top shelf. I found her very professional to work with and her staff was very knowledgeable. Other events we cooperated together on were the PEI Shellfish Festival Feast and Frolic with a menu that was for 425 people offsite. Again a very professional staff and excellent communication for flow from back of house to the front. I have no trouble in calling Pineapple Eventworks to staff my caterings in future events.

Tina Lesyk from Pineapple Eventworks provides exceptional, worry-free service. She listens to what your ideas are for an event and offers much needed suggestions on what she can do for your event. She's on time and works with any budget. I highly recommend her for excellent customer service skills and friendly attitude.

We partnered with Pineapple Eventworks for the Tuna Tableau Fall Flavours event at Basin Head and it was a great success. It was great to have Tina and her staff manage the entire service aspect of the event for us and took a lot of pressure off so that we could focus on other areas. I will definitely use Pineapple Eventworks again!

The pineapple is believed to have been introduced into Europe by Christopher Columbus. Columbus and his crew discovered the pineapple on their second voyage to the Caribbean. It symbolized hospitality to the Caribbean people and soon after it was adopted by Spaniards. Spanish explorers soon realized that if a pineapple was placed at the entrance to a village then it was a sign that they would be welcomed. This symbol spread to Europe and colonial North America. Families would often set fresh pineapple in the centre of the table when visitors were expected. The fruit would then be used in the dessert which followed the meal. The tradition of the pineapple as a sign of hospitality has now become universal!
