A Thyme to Cook, a bespoke, female owned business for 35 years, is a dedicated team of culinary and design creatives with a diverse crew. 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 impart integrity in all that we do. Booking every single event is not our goal. We don’t strive to be the biggest, we strive to be the best. We’re active partners in our local community and give back to many local non-profit organizations including the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank, Wheeler Library, Safe Futures, Mystic Arts Festival and many more. We care about the impact we make on the Earth and are proud of our 3-star Certified Green Catering distinction.

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.

    Thorough and Flexible Caterer

    From the moment we booked ATTC was so helpful! Our event coordinator, Paige, was amazing; constantly communicating and willing to work with us and make suggestions. We felt so prepared leading up to our wedding day! On our big day everything went so smoothly! Their large team made it look easy and all of the details were beautiful. The food was so delicious and we really feel like we were able to customize our menu to represent us. We so appreciated our assistant for the day that made sure we got to eat our cocktail hour food while taking pictures! Great experience all around!!

    A Thyme to Cook will make your wedding day dreams come true!

    We knew right away that A Thyme to Cook was the perfect fit for us. We had the pleasure of working with Rachel. Rachel is an extremely gifted event coordinator that thinks of every detail, goes above and beyond for her couples, has extraordinary communication skills, and does it all with kindness! We originally planned our big day for October 2020 at Saltwater Farm Vineyard, but like most 2020 couples, we were forced to postpone to a later date. Hosting the biggest day of one's life is not easy in the best of circumstances, but throughout a global pandemic (with an international guest list)...well, that is another story! Rachel and the entire team at A Thyme to Cook could not have been more accommodating and understanding to our unique situation. They worked with us as we settled on a new date in October 2021. Rachel and her team have a way of making you feel like you are the only people in the entire world getting married. Rachel walked us through every detail and was always a calming force as we dealt with circumstances beyond our control. She is excellent in sharing her vast experience and knowledge and makes everything enjoyable. From menu selection, to liaising with other vendors, Rachel and the entire ATTC crew gave us an experience that will last a lifetime in our minds and hearts. The food was not only displayed like works of art, but it was fresh and delicious. Everything was seamless and surpassed our expectations. All of our guests were blown away by our wedding day, but we really know how hard Rachel worked to make it all possible. Thank you Rachel for being so talented, thoughtful, and making our wedding day dreams come true!

    Amazing experience with A Thyme to Cook

    My husband and I originally planned a wedding for June 2020 and immediately knew A Thyme To Cook was the best catering/event team to go with. From the first conversation, they tailored our menu to our budget and to the time of year. With COVID occurring 3 months prior to our wedding, ATTC pivoted with us to our next two dates which eventually ended up being July 11, 2021 at Saltwater Farm Vineyard. Along the way, ATTC was extremely communicative and Rachel, our coordinator, was incredible. She helped the last few weeks help make some critical design decisions and within budget. The day of the wedding could not have gone more smoothly and Rachel and the team at ATTC were incredible. The food was amazing, the service to all of our 150 guests and simply the fact that my husband and I were never without a drink or something in hand was truly phenomenal. We cannot recommend ATTC enough and will look to their team for any future events we have!
