    Steve Casad, UCSD
  • “What a great presentation you two did. My clients loved it. I have to say, I felt everything was very tasty, great flavors. Thank you again, it was a pleasure.”

    Maria Kamon, MK Productions Meeting & Event Planning
  • “Hands down the best caterer in San Diego. We've used them for business lunches (AMAZING) and I recently attended a team building cook off in their kitchen. Their ability to put zip and flair into something as typically boring as a boxed lunch is simply unbelievable. I love Wild Thyme's commitment to local, sustainable foods. Most importantly, their staff is out of this world! All in all, a 5-star company with the quirky idea that even something as simple as my work lunch is important!”

    Sam Knox, Clever Advantage
  • Wild Thyme catered and helped me plan my wife's birthday this year and it was a huge success. The food was fantastic, presentation was elegant, and the serving staff was prompt, courteous, and professional. My wife was thrilled, her friends were thrilled, we had all of the fun without any of the stress. With Wild Thyme we raised the bar for the home parties we'll host and attend. Very highly recommended.”

    Andrew Crossan, Private Party Client
  • "Wild Thyme is rock solid. Catered our wedding for 185 guests on the 4th of July. This was at our home on a major holiday, so the logistics were challenging. They set up a kitchen with 14 staff / bartenders / servers in our garage, and made it all look easy. Lots of great items on our menu but the short ribs with mashed potatoes and asparagus was my personal fave."

    Justin W., Wedding Party Client
  • "My wife and I used Wild Thyme for our wedding on March 26, 2016 and we were very pleased with their food and service. The servers took excellent care of everyone and many of our guests made a point of telling us how amazing the food was! We are both foodies and the food was really wonderful!! We would highly recommend them."

    Marty C., Wedding Party Client
  • "If there were 10 stars available, that would still be too few. Wild Thyme catered our daughter and future son in law's engagement party. The food was beyond expectation, the presentation was simple and elegant and the servers were fabulous. The afternoon was flawless and the guests continually commented about the food, selection and excellence of service. As the event concluded, the staff invisibly gathered the tables and other items and departed all without interruption the ongoing party. Thank you to Jeanna and the entire Wild Thyme staff. We were so impressed that we hope to have you back for the farewell breakfast following the wedding.."

    Steven S., Engagement Party Client
The Wild Thyme Company Staff Keith Lord

Director of  Culinary

Los Angeles, California

"I credit my French-Canadian mother as instigating my lifelong passion and love of cooking. From my earliest childhood, I loved the kitchen. In my early twenties, a friend of mine owned a restaurant and I asked him for a job. From the first day, shelling shrimp, I knew it was my calling, my path! That's what lead me to the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont.

I draw inspiration from the artwork I create and through anything visually stimulating. From doodles on cocktail napkins to "classically defined" art (whatever that means). By treating power dinning sessions as the true contact sport it truly is. I'm motivated by driving at frenetic speeds, amazingly loud music, social media, and anything random or completely unusual. I plan my travels based on the foods, cuisines, and restaurants I want to sample and have the curry stains on my passport to back that up. I like to spend time in the kitchens of other chefs, and enjoy being extremely well caffeinated. I love any new idea, even if it seems slightly or completely insane."

  • What I want to eat/drink right now: Chicken Tikka Masala…do you have some?
  • The love of my life is: My wife, Emily.
  • I started cooking when: I was five… you know, French Canadian and hungry.
  • What I want to be when I grow up: Guitar player in the Foo Fighters.
  • Why I'm a foodie: You know that Thai place in the back of the Churchill Arms Pub in Notting Hill, London? I do, and I'll take you there.
