It's one thing to have passion, its another thing to be able to run a company. There's times when I'm like, I didn't want to just be sitting here managing people and running a business, but I do want to create a company that is able to show women how to run a business, to teach them this is how it goes, and this is how you're going to be sustainable."
Our Dish’n Dames feature this week is Tim McDiarmid of Tim the Girl Catering and The Good Kind Café in San Antonio, Texas.
Tim was raised on a farm in rural Canada where her family grew their own food. For her, farm to table isn’t a fad — it’s her history. And, it’s why she’s so passionate about crafting some of the wholesome, playful dishes she grew up craving.
After working in some of the most visionary whole foods restaurants in New York City for a decade, she heard the call of the culinary revolution happening in San Antonio. She settled down in the Texas food mecca to look for a profession that would allow her to be with her son while focusing on the food she loves.
Tim has won numerous accolades. A James Beard Fellow, she showcases her talents in her catering company, Tim the Girl Catering, as well as her two The Good Kind Café locations. She believes in working with fellow food lovers in the community and beyond to celebrate chefs and leaders who make our food system delicious, diverse, and sustainable for everyone.
