We would like to introduce ourselves to you and let you get to know us a little better.
Spend some Thyme with Linda – our Founder and President.
Linda has been with ATTC since day one! Over 30 years now.
Her favorite part of designing a celebration is getting to know the clients, and everyone’s story. Being able to incorporate couple’s unique personalities into their wedding menu.
One of the most unusual things she remembers from a wedding is the bridesmaids sitting in a closet on the floor with their laptops instead of at the reception!
Linda cannot live without pepper – all kinds and all degrees of heat. When asked for her favorite guilty pleasure snack, she mentioned that long ago it was twinkies, then went to good wedding cake and is now rich, dark, single origin chocolate. Her tastes have refined!
In High School, Linda was sure she would become a nurse. (She did before leaving to start ATTC!)
The fad that completely took hold of Linda was SHOULDER PADS!
When it comes to pets – The Fuzzy Boys are in charge!! Linda’s cats are a big part of the ATTC family. Maine coons Gus and Rudi. Linda’s kids say the cats rate higher than themselves.
Linda’s closest thing to 15 seconds of fame was her acceptance speech for our CATIE awards and presenting on hot trends at the International Catering Association conferences – over 600 people listening in Las Vegas.
With $20 in Linda’s hand to spend impulsively, she would come home with wooden crates from flea markets; weird beads to use in making jewelry or all kinds of antique pottery that she collect – if she can find a steal!
When not here at The Cookery, you’ll probably find Linda in the garden. Give her some dirt and she’s happy!
