About

Feeding others feeds us…

Essential Confection’s mission is to stamp out food insecurity through hands-on action, advocacy at multiple levels and financial contribution.

We believe deeply in building a culture of value that includes all our stakeholders: our team, our guests, our community.

We encourage creativity and learning as primary aims that we might all be elevated in delivering the finest quality artisan products.

We model and live the soft skills of hospitality – relationally.

We deliver products that promote gifting as care for ourselves and others.

Each pleasureful confection experience helps stamp out food insecurity while supporting the expansion of equitable food systems.

Essential Confection’s values closely mirror the values of our sister company, Essential-Insight Advisors.

Testimonials

My family absolutely loved the butter cake and the panettone. They are eagerly looking forward to the Douglas Fir Shortbread. Linda is such a creative artist!

Linda was referred to me by the owner of our business, and working with her was terrific! Our clients wait in anticipation for the next delivery!

My scattered high school and college friends were celebrating their 70th birthdays. I sent gifts of Linda’s assorted incredibly creamy and delicious caramels. Let’s just say, after one bite, none of them wanted to share!

Chef Linda’s fresh ingredients and obvious attention to detail shine through in everything I’ve ever ordered from her. The Creme Fraiche cheesecake has wowed family and friends with it’s flavor and texture. The GF Flourless Chocolate Cake is rich and dense to perfection. The In+Dulge Cookie is a small miracle to the gluten intolerant among us for its balanced softness and crispness.
