Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert..."Fashionable Food"

A Thyme to Cook applied it's creativity to some fashionable creations for the runway. The fashion show was part of it's recent Business After Hours/25 Year Anniversary Bash.

Just as you should start each day with breakfast, our fashion show began with a little snap, crackle and pop modeled by our own, Lexi. Her ensemble of "Breakfast" was made with a variety of cereal; colorful fruit loops and kix, and was accented with a blueberry necklace. "Careful with that milk Lexi".

A queen with a three carrot tiara. A fresh harvest of kale provided the base of the dress for Holly, who modeled "Lunch". Her outfit featured radishes, cucumbers, carrots and fresh red pepper flowers as part of its accessories.

Mia was sporting the "Dinner" look, an Au Couture of green and saffron rice, clam shells and New Zealand Mussels. Mia was heard saying "who knew Paella was an Asian Dish!".

"Dessert" was brought to the runway by Stephanie. Coffee, tea bags, sugar packets, cookies and spun sugar made up her outfit for the finale. Stephanie's hat weighed in at 4781 calories.

Thanks to DJ Doug for the lighting, runway and inspirational music!

Thanks to Gina for designing and producing a fun and entertaining show!

A Thyme to Cook Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

A Thyme to Cook celebrated its 25th Anniversary with an incredible Bash as well as a Business After Hours in conjunction with the Mystic Chamber of Commerce and the Eastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce. Linda Sample and her creative team featured Hors d'oeuvres from "The Past, Present and Future". An abundance of fabulous cuisine and spirits including a specialty "Black and Blue" Cocktail with A Thyme to Cook's African Blue Basil and Maple Lane Farm's Black Currants was delicious. Several outstanding wines from Jonathan Edwards Winery were also available for our tasting pleasure.

Highlights from the evening included a Food Fashion Show featuring Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Coffee, Tea and Dessert designed by our own Gina Barber. DJ Doug of Power Posse Productions entertained the guests with a fabulous array of music, a plasma TV showcasing the history of A Thyme to Cook, as well as the superb lighting on the runway and throughout the tents from Liberty Rental.
Special recognition and many thanks also goes out to the following friends;
Campbell's Farm for the beef, Stonington Seafood Harvesters for those wonderful scallops, LoPresti Farm for all their wonderful fresh vegetables and fruits, Handy House for the portable restroom, Arrow Party Rental for the china, flatware, glassware, linens and tables, Konow Electric for the power, Joshua's Limousine for the shuttle transportation, and Photo Booth Planet for the photo booth service...that was so much fun!
