Welcome to our house of sauce.

Big Spoon Sauce Co. is a husband-and-wife operation based in the coastal redwoods of Sonoma County, California. This chili crisp project was born from an obsession with Sichuan flavors, and has since grown into a celebration of both Chinese and California cuisines.

Big Spoon uses ingredients that are locally sourced when available, and our inspirations are always global in nature. Every Big Spoon sauce is vegan, gluten-free, and downright badass.

We recommend enjoying our products with eggs, sandwiches, noodles, tacos, dumplings, pizza, burritos, avocado toast, soups, marinades, friends, foes, neighbors, strangers, or simply spooning straight to face.

Chili crisp is a crunchy, crispy, tingly, spice-loaded flavor companion to foods of all kinds. It has roots in Sichuan cuisine but is universally delicious on any dish.

Lani and Nate developed their recipe over years of feedback from friends, family, and enthusiastic strangers. When they made their first batch, they didn’t think it would grow up to have its own website, but here we are! Thank you for being part of the Big Spoon fam.
