Originally from Lawton, Oklahoma, Mr. Kinderman received The Bill Crawford memorial scholarship from Lawton, Ok, his senior year of high school. He then started his career with a full scholarship at Oklahoma City University, a private institution, famous for their Music Theater program. He followed his passion, after summer stock shows, moving to New York, New York, and found himself catering in between theater jobs, which included "Jesus Christ Superstar", the 30th anniversary of "Hair", "Phantom of the Opera" and "Grease" to name a few. Even with so many worthy credits he always returned to catering. Then he moved to Los Angeles, after a European tour, and began managing catering events for a large catering company. It was then that a client suggested he start his own company, which launched About Thyme.

In just eight short years, Mr. Kinderman has created a buzz in the catering world he says "is worthy of Hollywood A-listers," whom he now counts among his clients. As owner of About Thyme, he specializes in innovative dishes and culinary fusions usually only found in high-end restaurants. Clients rave about his signature lamb lollipops in raspberry mole, as well as his Alasakan halibut baked in saffron and shallot cream reduction and topped with orange and carrot top confit with delicate pea shoots. About Thyme has built an award-winning reputation of excellence, whether catering to small private functions or larger corporate events. Among numerous rave reviews, About Thyme boasts numerous five-star ratings on websites, and was first rated 2010 Crown in Town in a People's Choice award. Mr. Kinderman won Best Caterer in Los Angeles four years in a row, which qualified him entry into the Caterer's Hall of Fame. He is proud of setting a new standard with About Thyme, and of his elite and diverse client list. Recently, About Thyme partnered with Knot Magazine, the popular wedding publication, at their Los Angeles event, and has provided catering for numerous A-list client weddings.

Mr. Kinderman would like to stress that About Thyme not only caters to the privileged elite, but also reflects his strong social conscience. The caterer frequently helps nonprofit companies and donates to food banks. It partners with Union Rescue Mission to provide food for shelters and to lend services for local charity events. During the recession, About Thyme was contacted by the Los Angeles nonprofit Emigo to help with a winter shelter program. It had lost its funding, but with About Thyme they were able to provide 66 thousand meals in three and a half months.

Today, About Thyme's success is measured by undeniable finances, with a profit margin that has doubled year after year. Mr. Kinderman welcomes clients to read the reviews, taste the food, and to admire the artistry of his work to understand why, in the competitive world of high-end catering, his "thyme" has come.
