Chef Shelly Maddocks is the executive chef and owner of Savoring Thyme, a personal chef and catering service. Shelly, her husband, an Air Force officer, and son have lived all over the United States. She has experienced every culture and cuisine America has to offer. This shows in her cooking, which she is now excited to share with you. Her roots are in San Antonio, Texas, where she comes from a long line of amazing cooks including her uncle who was once the executive chef and owner of The Brownstone in Houston, Texas. Her menu is sprinkled with southwestern flavors and flare; her guacamole is to die for! Great food isn’t the only thing Shelly brings to her customers. Equally important are service and presentation. Savoring Thyme is all about the client. The business is designed around the client’s lifestyle, personal tastes and preferences, and dietary needs. “I spend one-on-one time with you defining your expectations and creating a personalized menu. I then grocery shop, cook in your home, package your meals, and clean up, leaving your home spotless. Finally I provide detailed instructions for final food preparation. You enjoy gourmet meals in your own home and ‘savor your thyme.’” Although Shelly emphasizes the personal chef aspect of her business, she also offers catering services and cooking classes. Chef Shelly also writes for the Green Kitchen Tool blog. Go to to see what she has to say! You can also catch her on Facebook at where she has quite the following.
