Huyen (pronounced “when”) is the owner of the
company Say Huyen Catering and is a lifelong veteran
of the food industry. From working in her parent’s
restaurant as a child, to bartending, serving, running a
busy catering division for a popular eatery in Pasadena,
California and eventually running her own catering
company. Huyen has done it all and continues to do it
day in and day out. Born in Vietnam and raised in
Chicago. Huyen began at an early age working in her
parent’s restaurant. “Having the experience at such a
young age helped me learn the multiple disciplines of
cooking.” Huyen was always a natural in the Kitchen and
understood at an early age what her true calling would
be. Working throughout her childhood and high school
years, Huyen continued to hone her skills. At 23 she headed to California to tackle a new region and all it had to offer in regards to food. Taking multiple jobs, sometimes all at once to support her family, Huyen didn’t take these jobs for granted as just a way to make ends meet. She became a sponge and tried to soak up as much knowledge as possible at each job. With all of her experience she finally asked this question a few years ago. “Why can’t I do this myself, make my own decisions and take control of what I do best?” Her answer of course was “why not” and Say Huyen Catering was born.
From intimate parties of 12 to large gatherings of 250, Huyen can do it all. Sweet or savory she can customize any menu to your liking. Huyen is not a graduate of any prestigious brick and mortar culinary institution but rather a graduate of another great culinary school, the school of life.
