Let us prepare a culinary experience for you to enjoy! 

Our commitment to you is to provide you with a culinary experience with fresh, nutritious food.

Professionally prepared and customized

to your needs & budget

Having Thyme Around the Table with friends and family is one of the best experiences we can enjoy!



How much are you spending on eating out? Tired of waiting at a restaurant? Sick of poor service? Tired of buying food that you really do not know what is in it? 
Are you too busy, tired, or uninterested to cook healthy delicious meals?

Whether you are a family balancing busy schedules, empty nester, or a jet-setting professional just looking for flavorful convenience, let Thyme do the cooking for you and give you back your Thyme Around the Table with your family.

The chef arrives with groceries and prepares a customized menu based on your preferences. A variety of proteins, vegetables, soups and salads that you can reheat throughout the week. The chef stores and labels the dishes in your containers, leaving you with a stocked fridge for the week and your kitchen spotless.
No commitment is necessary. You can request the same time and day each week, or contact us each time you’d like to schedule a cooking appointment.

 Starting at $250 for a personal chef that will not only cook for you but, also shop, leave your home spic and span and have your meals in the refrigerator or freezer, pre-packaged and
ready to be heated up!
