The Winning Difference
Why are the winners of countless major culinary competitions all graduates of the Culinary Institute of America? There is a vast difference among chefs. A CIA graduate's level of skill, discipline, attention to detail and service to customers has no peer.
Soups are not based on canned stock and whatever ingredients are on sale. Hours of simmering seafood shells, vegetables or the bones of poultry, veal and beef produce a superior base. The beef in the soup is filet mignon - not scraps. If mere soups are this good, imagine an entire wedding reception.
Don’t let the location or size of the café fool you. Kevin’s Thyme caters weddings and corporate functions for 200-500 with ease.
Bergen county residents don’t have to travel to savor the finest cuisine, they do as Fortune 500 companies and hospitals do - just order from Kevin’s Thyme.
