The Chef And Her Team

We serve all things for the good of the earth by serving others and leaving where we've been better than how we found it!

Founder Bio: Tamara Leibfarth

Chef Tamara, the owner of Simply Thyme Catering, began her experience with the promise of adding the “savory ingredient” to any event with fresh, creative, innovative menu options. Starting with catering services for Social and Corporate catering in February 2006, she soon added Aviation Catering for private jets and charters flying from PDX in August of the same year. The business grew and we were soon catering for more than 1600 events in each of the last two years.

Simply Thyme Catering provides creative catering, from small, intimate parties to large-scale events, from picnic pleasures to elegant dinners! We offer customized services and menus for a range of budget considerations. Catering prices vary based on menu selections, guests count and level of service, so we’ll create a plan that works for you.

Food is a central part of any celebration and we know it’s important that any event reflects your taste and vision which is why Simply Thyme offers catering by design.

Great Food Makes Happy Clients

"I loved the food they make, it’s simply delicious. Staff will make anything you order, I especially order from Simply Thyme Catering because I can call in the morning to order and pick it up after work for my dinner. My kids love their food! Staff is professional and pricing is totally reasonable." - Rita West
