About Thyme

Brilliant! The menu,
the service, the ease of it all!

When I decided to have a party for my big 5-0, I decided to splurge and hire a caterer. A friend referred me to About Thyme. The party was at our home in the Hollywood Hills and John Kinderman, sure brought home the fact that it was about time I hired a caterer!
John met with me early on to discuss the menu. I gave him a budget, which wasn't huge, and he came up with a wonderfully creative spread that was superbly delicious, ample and elegant.
We made it a hat party, so that all the guests wore hats, and John's staff joined in and added to the fun. They added a delightful vibe that enhanced the very yummy and artistically prepared menu but also maintained the highest level of professionalism.
It was truly the best gift to have About Thyme create our event. It allowed us to enjoy the party completely.
* Pros: Imaginative, value, flexibility, FUN
* Cons: none

John was an absolute dream to work with! He is fun, professional and truly understands making his clients look great. The food was phenomenal, and abundant! Our guests are still commenting on how wonderful the food was...and some have even asked John for recipes. We will without a doubt being using John and all of About Thyme again! No hesitations on this end giving the entire crew a resounding THUMBS UP!
* Pros: the food, the staff, the lamb lollipops

As the Manager for Special Events at the Natural History Museum and the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits I have worked with John on both my in-house events and as the caterer for clients who rent the museum for their private functions.
He is a lot of fun to work with - coming through with class and style even on the tightest of budgets. His staff is amazing and his food delicious. What more could you ask for??
* Pros: Great Staff, Great Food

I never bother writing reviews however this company deserves a moment of my time to say Thank You!
Everything was timed and organized, the food was yummy, interesting mmmmmmm. I run a large company, we used About Thyme to cater our Christmas party and all I can say is WOW. Lovely people the food kept coming we were never waiting around for the next corse. Food display was elegant, artsy appropriate for the event.
John Kinderman ( owner) lived up to and surpassed our expectations. It's so refreshing to find a company in LA that still believes in service with a smile, a high quality product as well as a reasonable fee.
Thank you John

You need to try it!

I would very highly recommend the catering services of About Thyme. They provided food for our Winter Shelter Programs where nightly we served 300+ individuals who found themselves without a home or a place to lay their head. The AT staff was professional and friendly and really showed a genuine care for our guests. Communication was prompt and clear in all aspects. I would not hesitate to hire John and AT catering for any event in the future and I would encourage anyone who will listen to do the same! Thank you again to John and his staff for providing such delicious food for such an important cause!
