Welcome to my kitchen!

Whether you’re new to my page, an old friend, or someone I’ve had the pleasure of meeting before, I’m thrilled to have you here.

I’m a Midwestern girl from Indy with culinary roots in Arizona & Southern California. When I moved to Cincinnati in 2004, I set out to carve my path as a chef in this vibrant city.

Out Of Thyme began as a personal chef service, with me traveling all over Cincinnati to prepare meals for busy people. In the early years, I taught cooking classes across the city, forming lasting connections and memories with a diverse group of people. Over a decade, my dedication and passion fueled the growth of the business, leading me on a new culinary journey as a brick-and-mortar business owner.

In March of 2016, we opened the doors to Out Of Thyme Kitchen, expanding our services to the public. My goal was clear: to make the luxury of a personal chef accessible to a wider demographic.

From convenient ready-to-go meals to engaging cooking classes, private events, corporate catering, and beyond, we offer an array of culinary experiences. What truly distinguishes us from traditional cooking schools and catering companies is our commitment to providing not only chef-made meals but also immersive hands-on learning opportunities and full-service catering.

When I’m not in the kitchen, you’ll find me riding my Peloton, engrossed in a book, exploring new cities, or savoring meals with my loved ones.

My food philosophy is simple: you deserve good food. Food crafted from real, high-quality ingredients, prepared with skill and love. I invite you to visit us here, and let’s embark on a journey to create something truly delicious together!

– Chef Jaime
