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.

ATTC is amazing to work with. They worked with us to create a custom menu that exceeded all of expectations. Their food is absolutely delicious, but they are so much more than a caterer. They worked with us to plan all of the details in the months leading up to the big day. They reached out to all of our other vendors ahead of time and ran the show for us the day of the wedding and because of them, we had the perfect day. Megan was our coordinator and she was AMAZING. She truly cared about our wedding and making sure we were taken care of. Not only did they ensure that we were able to eat our dinner, but we were actually able to relax and enjoy every minute of the day because of ATTC's incredible team. I cannot recommend them enough. They truly are the best. Thank you Megan and the entire team at A Thyme to Cook!!Sent on 10/31/2016

From the first meeting with Juli to the final send-off from Brian, ATTC made sure every detail of our wedding was perfectly planned and taken care of. They took the time to get to know us and based on what we wanted for the day they perfectly created a delicious menu that our guests could not stop raving about. Our coordinator Brian made sure that our personalities shined thru in every detail, from the signature cocktail to the schedule of the day. ATTC made our wedding everything we could ask for.

Where do I even begin with ATTC? Our venue had 4 preferred caterers and ATTC was one of them. They were actually a preferred vendor at many of the places we were researching. So I will say they had a leg up from the start…We inquired seriously with them and one additional caterer. The original consult with Juli was absolutely amazing! It was like an hour talking with an old friend about the foods we liked and didn’t like, our favorite restaurants, what kind of food we were looking for…The resulting proposal was nothing short of amazing! Not only did they capture the essence of us in food, it was the most stunningly beautiful quote package. It was presented like a beautiful menu and customized to our venue. Once signing, we were assigned to Meaghan as our day-of-coordinator. She was wonderful throughout the entire process! She is truly one of the sweetest people and always happy to answer any questions we had! We met her in person at the tasting, which was so nice! Because they customize the menu to their couples, it was just the two of us and Meaghan eating delicious food! She even coordinated the napkins to our wedding colors! She was so patient while I was super indecisive about linens. She even came to our final venue walk through so she could be there with us so everyone was on the same page with final details. Day of, I was comforted knowing she was just a text away! Her and the rest of the ATTC staff were so attentive and helpful! Our day-of attendant Tammi always made sure we had food and drinks! She literally guided us to our table so we would be forced to eat once dinner was served. It probable goes without saying, but the food was simply amazing! It was even more delicious than I remembered at our tasting. Book them NOW!
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
