And they will be excited to hear that, although not exactly same, the new partnership between the Deft Chef and Grice’s owner, Ted Groomes, is going to tantalize taste buds once again.

Two Experts at the top of Their Game Team up!

The Deft Chef has been Aiken’s only professionally trained, highly-experienced catering service for over fifteen years. And when you combine that with Ted Grime’s established butcher’s business, that equals nearly four decades of expertise. Grice’s Butcher shop only delivers the highest cuts of beef, chicken, and pork, all USDA certified, and fresh to order. And the Deft Chef’s cuisine has a wide array of different tastes and cuisine styles to wow everyone.

What Type of Cuisine can you Expect?

Jimmy is famous for his earth-shattering She Crab Soup and Cajun flare style, which is his personal favorite. But the menu will reflect tastes of the season, fresh local produce, and the most tender meat selections available. Grice’s Butcher shop will contribute the finest butchered-fresh meats in Aiken so that every meal will be a match made in cuisine-heaven. Also available, will be ala carte side dishes to pair with any of Grice’s grill-able steaks and chops, homemade-fresh and ready for pick up! The menu will be altered from time to time, according to what is in season, what Jimmy can cook up, and customer’s favorites.
