​The dinner party was perfect again! There were raves over the food, and your quiet efficiency was noticed. Thank you.
Perfection should be next to your company name. Your willingness to create a menu that is delicious, health conscious, and presentable is admirable. You hire help, Jen, who are friendly and know how to create warmth and friendliness while they work so closely and in sync with you.
And then the cleanup - I’m always surprised at this. To realize that when the party is over, I don’t have to do the dishes or clean-up. Thank you!!
Thank you so much. Until we work together again, be well.

It was a joy to work with you again to give a lovely evening to so many people. The Light Supper you provided for us on January 17 was perfect! The menu of chili and butternut squash soup with a variety of warm finger sandwiches and the roasted vegetables was delicious and easy to manage in a non-sit down environment. I loved the tray of pickled goodies and baked brie with crackers. One guest who is gluten intolerant raved about the food and that she had plenty to eat. In fact, everyone was “hmmm”ing all evening with raised eyebrows and surprised looks! Thank you.  Also, you and Erin make a great team. The kitchen was run smoothly, food presented beautifully, and a clean kitchen at the end of the evening was a gift. 
Thank you, thank you.  I look forward to working with you again, Hayden.

Featured in Distinction Magazine "Hayden Hargis lived up to her outsized reputation with scrumptious paninis – in country ham and Swiss as well as roasted vegetable varieties. An asparagus and new-potato salad with roasted chicken and a muscadine vinaigrette was a big hit. And her chilled celery soup with cilantro and roasted pepitas really got people talking."  

"I had the pleasure of employing Hayden and her team for a recent outdoor event hosting over 60 guests. I was thoroughly impressed as she was able to accommodate our various dietary needs (gluten free, spices, allergies) all while enhancing our menu requests with her advanced culinary acumen to really provide an exquisite presentation for all while keeping within our event theme. We had to be offsite prior to the guests arrival which we were concerned about, but Hayden brought her team in and executed the requested plan utilizing our kitchen without issue or guidance. This was critical to my wife and I as we were able to focus on the event and relaxing with our guests instead of being concerned with presentation, restocking, and clearing of food. Afterward, we returned to an impeccably clean kitchen, no dishes, and organized leftovers placed in the refrigerator. I was thoroughly pleased with the overall experience and will be requesting Hayden's services again. First class."

"When it comes to catering a special meal at an affordable price, you really nailed it!  You did everything from the from appetizers through the main course and desert.  You served it and cleaned up allowing us to fully enjoy a special family party from start to finish. We can't wait to see what you will do for us the next time!"

I had Hayden cater my wife's 40th birthday party and she did an amazing job!   She was involved in every aspect of the event - from concept to menu design to the day of preparation and execution.  Hayden's performance was awesome. The food was fantastic - so extremely ‎fresh and delicious!   Our guests devoured every single morsel - down to the last meatball!  

I would highly recommend Hayden to anyone interested in having any sort of event privately catered.   She and her staff did a great job. Thank you so much for the professional, thorough and enjoyable experience. Well done, Hayden!
