We believe in relationships over convenience and are diligent about combining your desires with our culinary passion to create a perfectly curated experience just for you, your family and your guests.

We build a kitchen and fire up the ovens for every event to cook everything fresh onsite. We have an in-house cheesemonger, pastry chef on staff, order fresh quality ingredients weekly, slice our own meats, make our own breads, and design new flavor combinations daily. We love what we do!
Our team is wildly creative, joyful, personal and compassionate. We interpret your desires in a way only we can, to create a unique experience just for you. We’re open to all ideas and take on every challenge with a fresh perspective.

Played such a big/important/wonderful role on our wedding day!
Meaghan and the rest of the team were truly amazing to work with! Starting from the first time we met, we could tell how genuine they were in wanting to make our day exactly what we were looking for. The tasting was so much fun and they really care about making all of the food special and unique to the couple. We live in London and said we wanted to do an ode to that, so they came up with two versions of a scotch egg, which we got to taste test and pick which one we wanted. They are so creative and I can't emphasize enough just how delicious all of the food was! On the day of the wedding, they kept us on our timeline and were incredibly organized-it was a HUGE help and so comforting to know they were there by our side the whole day and night to make sure everything ran smoothly. They always made sure we had food and drinks and would always check in with us at the perfect times. They truly make your wedding stress free and so easy which really allows you to just have fun and enjoy every moment! We also got tons of compliments on our food, and seriously the best we have ever had at a wedding-everything was timely, warm and delicious. Everything is so fresh and local! Can't recommend highly enough and wish we could do it all over again! :)Sent on 10/12/2019

Amazing/Creative food and Great Service!
A Thyme to Cook catered our wedding at a private residence and we simply could not have pulled it all together without them. From the initial survey, when ATTC asked for our favorite restaurants, experiences, types of food, etc. to the tasting, to helping coordinate all many vendors, to the day itself, ATTC provided the highest level of service and creativity. We told ATTC we wanted to highlight different places we had lived and important parts of our backgrounds in our menu and they created hors d'oeuvres and stations that did that and worked together. We had made a special request but at the tasting we all realized it would be too difficult to pull off so ATTC came up with a different (also amazing) option. We were so glad they were realistic with us about what was possible. Our coordinator Liz was such a pleasure to work with, and basically served as our de facto wedding planner for the early months, coordinating many different vendors (tent, rentals, fancy porta-potty). She was responsive and funny and all around great! Most importantly, the food was truly delicious. Everyone raved about the lobster chip, mini half smoke, and mini pastrami sandwich hors d'oeuvres and the New Zealand meat pie stations. ATTC also assigns an attendant to the bride and groom, which allows you to actually eat all the delicious food you've selected. Unlike many friends who say you don't get to eat at your own wedding, I think we ate more than anyone else because of their service. Book ATTC - you will not regret it.Sent on 09/22/2019

The best decision we made was hiring A Thyme to Cook
The best decision we made in planning our wedding celebration was hiring A Thyme To Cook. From the beginning, they took time to understand our vision and needs, and at every step of the way made sure that we were going to have the event that was right for us. Meaghan was our coordinator and could probably plan the Oscars without a hitch...she was a total dynamo. She was accessible, friendly, detail-oriented, and thoughtful. She made sure our rentals went smoothly and were the right ones, worked with our venue and musicians to coordinate details, and she arranged for a perfect menu and details that we couldn’t have arrived at without her. She was responsive to questions and ideas, and also instilled so much trust that there was zero stress in working with her. On the day of our celebration, everything went absolutely smoothly, the staff was delightful, and the food was delicious! 6 out of 5 stars!!!Sent on 10/07/2019
After working with A Thyme To Cook (ATTC) for many years I am fully confident they are able to make any occasion special. I've not only been able to experience there exquisite attention to detail at some of the weddings I Officiate, I've also used them for events at my own home, including my birthday! Awesome people, Awesome food!
A Thyme to Cook, ran by Linda Sample, is a great caterer that we highly recommend for events at the Historic Granite House in Waterford, CT. Linda is among a select group of fine caterers that we are always happy to have serve our venue. They are very professional, provide great service and their food is top shelf. We are very happy to be recommended as a great small venue by them as well. Paul & Dale
