The cake was beautiful and tasted great. I just didn't think the cake would be that small visually. Everyone got cake (there was definitely enough to feed what I requested) But I've seen other people request the same servings (at different bakeries) and their cakes was much much larger.

I gave my adult daughter, Jenny, a cooking class with Cindy as a birthday gift. Cindy was flexible and able to find a time that fit Jenny's tight schedule. She talked to my daughter the week before the class to understand her skill level and what she wanted to get out of the time together. She customized the lesson to Jenny's request for what to learn (more interesting vegetable preparation and some vegetarian dishes). Cindy was extremely well prepared on day of class with all the ingredients purchased and the kitchen set up appropriately. Jenny enjoyed the lesson and made three full dishes and learned a sauce that will be extremely useful for many dishes. Jenny said the class would have been more useful if she (Jenny) had been better able to articulate what she wanted to learn and describe her skill level better. Our one suggestion for how to improve the experience is to have a fixed fee for ingredients ($40-50) that is on top of the class fee instead of line item detail and recording costs for each ingredient used as it was used. The line item detailing was tedious, wasn't known in advance, and made Jenny feel she needed to decide if each spice and oil was worth the cost. Also, there were no containers available to take home the prepared food at end of class unless an extra fee was paid. We suggest including the cost of containers in the supply fee. (Cindy did let Jenny borrow mason jars which we returned later- so it worked out. ) All in all it was a fun and worthwhile experience and a creative gift for an adult. We would go back to Cindy again for another class.

I just had a lovely Christmas dinner party at our home for 10 couples. Nicolas cooked for us and it was amazing. He spent the entire afternoon at our home preparing dinner while we were decorating and putting the final touches on things. It was as if an old friend was in town helping us prepare, we listened to music, sang and laughed. When our guests arrived they were wow'd at the thought of having a chef come and cook. This was our first time at having someone come into our home and prepare a meal and we would definately do this again. Nicolas was spectaular and I would recommend him to anyone!

Her cakes, pies, rum balls, macaroons, and all of the numerous other baked goods she makes are all delicious.

So glad that I found and decided to use Wild Orchard for our wedding cake and dessert bar. Likling is a pleasure to work with, professional and truly listened to our tastes and vision. Her attention to detail was impressive and showed in her work. Our cake and dessert bar was a hit and her fresh macaroons were to die for! Would definitely recommend her to others. Thanks Likling for making our day so special.

I've sampled numerous dishes/pastries Valerie has made and you will not find a better caterer! She's a perfectionist and wants to make sure you have the best experience with her food. I can't recommend her enough. She made my grandson's 1st birthday cake from a photo on the internet (we chose Toodles from The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse). Not only was it spot on, but absolutely delicious. The marble cake was moist and tasty, the buttercream frosting was sublime (not too sweet), but the best part of the entire cake was the fresh raspberry filling. Once my grandson tasted it, he tore the top layer of his little cake off to get to those berries! I can't say enough about Valerie and her cooking/baking skills. Once you've had her food, you'll never want anyone else to cook/bake for you.

Chef Molly and her staff did a great job preparing brunch for 35 people at our house near Stanford. The meal was delicious, everything was really nicely presented and Molly was ready plenty of time before my guests arrived. The french toast was a huge huge hit. The best part was that I was able to hire and pay for her directly through Thumbtack without ever picking up the phone. She was able to coordinate all through messages and the contract was simple. She was able able to adjust the price to work within our budget. I would recommend Molly and Organicopia if you're looking for clean, healthy, delicious food at a reasonable price with great service!!

Michelle has over 5 years of experience as a chef. She has worked with organic, farm to table cafes and catering companies, as well as, privately, hosting her own pop-up dinners in town and cooking for clients in- home for on-going services and parties of up to 40. She also is the weekly on-site chef for a non-profit retreat on Kauai every 6 months. To Michelle, cooking is art. When she creates in the kitchen, her mindfulness is a blend of nutrition, complexity in flavors as well as a physical beauty in the finished product. Her focus in her work is to make the entire experience for her clients a pleasure-filled one. She has often heard similar reviews from clients of "rising the vibration of a room with her food." ... |"I believe that when we eat good, healthy and delicious food, we are able to not only connect with ourselves on a deeper level (i.e to know what foods make us feel good and what foods do not, as well as to slow down and to be more mindful in general) but we most importantly find that we can connect with those around us. That is what it is all about for me: sharing in a beautiful experience with the ones who surround us."|
