Welcome to our house of sauce.

Big Spoon Sauce Co. is a small 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 100% vegan, gluten-free, MSG-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.

What is chili crisp?

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.

We love our saucy friends

We want to thank everyone who has helped us bring these sauces into the world. Cheers to our early adopters and beloved 'sauce heads' who have been on this adventure with us since the beginning.

Special thanks to the Altamont General Store in downtown Occidental for the kitchen space and the good vibes, and to Josee Nesper for her gorgeous spice drawings we feature on every jar.

We raise our spoons to you!

- Lani and Nate
