I got married at a vineyard in Stonington and knew immediately which caterer I was going to use. A Thyme to Cook has that farm to table outlook on food, which I knew would provide the best ingredients, service and really be different than typical "banquet" food. Not only was the food exceptional, but so was the service. Everyone was professional and knowledgeable.
I also want to mention our Event Coordinator. She was exceptional! I felt like I was in such great hands with her. With a full-service catering company, they really are the wedding planners and handle EVERYTHING. They listened to what I wanted and really delivered. I really loved ATTC and would recommend them to anyone!
Thank you so much for being a part of our married life, from catering our wedding reception to helping us mark its anniversary for the past twenty years. Your food, service, and attitude have been tremendous.
I wanted to say a quick thank you regarding the planning and tasting for my wedding. Your staff’s attention to detail and welcoming nature were unmatched. ATTC made us feel welcome and we loved that we were able to make a custom menu vs. picking items off a list. We all had a wonderful time at our tasting and we're all excited that you will be catering our wedding.
A Thyme to Cook was amazing from the beginning of our planning to the very end of the wedding. They were welcoming, attentive, and helped with planning all of the details. Food was outstanding. They will work the menu within your budget. I have Celiac disease and they had no problem accommodating gluten free cake (which was out of this world) and food. Both head chefs were present during the tasting to explain options and food pairing. Our Event Coordinator went above and beyond with detail and coordinating. This catering company is the best, I recommend them all the way!!! Nothing but good things to say.
A Thyme to Cook was an absolute joy to work with. We had the luxury of being able to choose a caterer and we were THRILLED that we went with A Thyme to Cook. From the first phone consultation we had, they were extremely kind and professional and treated us like we were important and not just another event on their busy schedule. They allowed us to be very creative with our menu- marrying our ideas with theirs and even came up with a dessert for us that included favorite flavors of my husbands. We are self-proclaimed "foodies" or "food enthusiasts", so we didn't want run of the mill wedding food & they definitely delivered. I still dream about some of the hors d'oeuvres.
ATTC transformed the venue into a magical place beyond what I could have ever imagined. I was literally in awe when we pulled up to the venue. Everyone says that you won't have time to eat at your wedding- but you will if ATTC is catering. Every time I turned around, my husband and I had exactly what we needed!
On a related note- I have worked for catering companies for several years- good and bad- and it was very clear that the staff was enjoying themselves. That definitely says a lot about the company. All I can say is that if you really want to have a special event, you can't go wrong with ATTC!
I would be happy to recommend you to anyone I should speak with. Your customer service alone is excellent and reassuring to any bride in the midst of this wedding planning madness!
My favorite caterer in the whole wide world, not just for the food, but for the professionalism, good cheer, humor, creativity, flexibility, Eco-consciousness and community commitments. I am honored to have years and years of wonderful event memories with the A Thyme To Cook team!
Menu Planning Process
The A Thyme To Cook team is passionate about food, local, seasonal ingredients, flavor, freshness and maintaining the integrity of ingredients and respecting our world. We love a challenge and being adventurous. Our culinary team is well known for their ability to create classic comfort food just as easily as designing a cutting edge food experience.
Because we plan each menu just for you, we do not offer standardized menus or lists of food items for your choosing. We want to listen to your ideas and food preferences. We want to sit down with you to learn about your food experiences and how they have shaped your desires and palate. We regard the process as a culinary journey that we take, together, with you.
We guide you in practical, cost-effective ways that will WOW your guests. Our team prides itself with experienced knowledge of varied culinary trends– from gluten free to vegetarian/ vegan to ethnic…
Located in the midst of southern Connecticut’s agricultural abundance, we have the opportunity to partner with many local farmers, cheese mongers, CSA’s, wineries and breweries. We love learning how to use the entirety of local products – animal or vegetable. We love the smell of a wood-fired grill, the feel of fresh soil, the taste of a sun-warmed tomato, picked from the farm down the road, the snap of a crisp, fresh Roma green bean. We also grow and maintain our own gardens of herbs and edible flowers. Your menu will reflect ALL of our local bounty.
After our initial meeting with you, our design team will sit down and put together a cohesive menu that reflects you, the season and your venue. This is the starting point, and we keep tweaking the details along the journey, until we get it to be just what you want. Soon after, we’ll be excited to have you back to the cookery to taste your menu and give us feedback.
