Meghan timby

Owner & Executive Chef

A Charleston resident for 20 years, Meghan began her culinary career as a personal chef for downtown residents. In 2010, she attended The Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, spending the next three years cooking in restaurants and TV production houses.

Returning to Charleston, Meghan cooked and managed events for Charleston’s largest catering company. Seeking to better express her scratch-made cooking philosophy, she transitioned to Rosemary & Rye, where she has led the kitchen for 8 years.

Meghan shares two young children, with her husband Chris, our Operations Manager. Her experience as an event planner, client coordinator and non-profit board member provides an all-encompassing approach to effective event execution.
