Kay Hardy, owner and operator of Kay Hardy Events, was born and raised in the beautiful hills of North Georgia. Kay has had a strong passion for cooking since she was a young girl, learning all of her techniques from her Granny and home-economics teacher. Her delicious southern cuisine, feisty personality, and deep, southern accent are just a few of the many things people love about her. While her home-style cooking will make you want to slap your Mama, her eye for decorating is also spot on. Kay’s God-given talents allow her to spice up any home, space or event.
