Fun Cooking in Italy​

What makes it so perfect?

Elegant Table Setting

A Perfect Thyme Gourmet Caterers specializes in full-service catering for any type of event, no matter size or location.  From assisting in conceiving your event all the way to the last goodbyes, we take care of everything that is required to put on – and pull off –

the perfect event.

Our executive chef works with you to create a menu that best speaks to your overall vision for the event choosing bold and statement-making combinations.  We make all arrangements for rental equipment (linens, china, crystal, garden tents, etc.) and coordinate directly with your venue, freeing you to enjoy the planning and hosting stages of the event.

Our skilled and certified chefs work to carefully create and prepare your menu items using only the freshest and in-season ingredients. Our staff of service professionals will make your guests feel welcome as they hand pass elegant handmade hors  D’oeuvres, serve tableside or tend to your guests’ adult beverages.

At the end of your function, while you are busy enjoying your guests’ company, we are packaging up any remaining menu items for you, spotlessly cleaning our working and serving areas, and leaving your guests with a memory of excellence. With 22 years in business, we take pride in what we do and we know that you will too.

A Note from Our Executive Chef about Italy


When I attended Quinnipiac University in Connecticut for

my undergraduate degree,  I had a wonderful professor of music named Roger Ermili. He told us all that everyone

should visit Italy at least once in their life. He said it was

Europe’s Museum. I took that advice to heart. I’ve been a chef for many years now and I eventually found my way to Italy - Positano, Italy on the Amalfi coast - to be exact.

I went there to learn about the local cuisine, meet and be taught by Italian chefs and to discover the fundamentals of Italian cooking using only local and in-season ingredients.

I’m in love with the country, the food, the wine, the traditions and the way of life. I want to introduce my clients, both long-time and new, to La Dolce Vita. It is found in Italy. Join me on a 10 day culinary excursion that will change you forever. It may be your first trip to Italy but it certainly will not be your last!
