As a Virginia Tech alum with a degree in Foods & Nutrition/Education, Chef Pamela’s culinary journey began early on.  She has been fortunate to use her varied work experiences to launch The Thyme Savor back in 2005 shortly after landing in Raleigh NC, where the climate & atmosphere is warmer all around.

After a 6-month stint as a personal chef, (which was too boring), Pam decided to incorporate her skills with catering and culinary instruction.  It’s been an amazing pilgrimage in the kitchen!

Chef Pamela is also a professional recipe developer, has contributed to various publications, and believes strongly in sharing her expertise.  The Thyme Savor is the result of Chef Pamela’s hard work and dedication to her passion: food.
