Reviews straight from the mouths of all the wonderful people we feed each week:
"We love ordering weekly from you since in my 75th year of life and 52nd year of marriage, I've run out of steam--planning, shopping and making daily meals. Even when we were vacationing in Greece, I was thinking that you would be willing to make some Greek dishes when we got back. Voila! The Greek pastitsio with beef was really tasty and later tonight we'll enjoy the rolled baklava. Thank you, thank you for making our lives easier, healthier and tastier!"

"I love the Big Spoon Kitchen and look forward to the menu each week! After working all day the last thing I want to do is cook or try an figure out what to cook. BSK makes the end of the day a breeze, knowing the food is there and just needs to be warmed. Everything is yummy too! Thank you BSK!"
"For the past year I drove past the sign with the big spoon and wondered what it was all about until I saw an ad about a month ago. I am so glad that I have finally found the secret. I have gotten meals every week since then and it is great to get hearty, locally sourced meals made with caring hands. Every week there too many delicious sounding choices and everything that I have tried has been wonderful. Last night I came home on a cold snowy night a warmed up a stunning bowl of rich turkey soup for dinner, it was heaven."
"I keep ordering at BigSpoonPotsdam.com because the food is GREAT! I am a busy full time teacher and coach and being able to order and pick up home cooked meals that use mostly local produce and meat is awesome. I have not been disappointed with anything I have ordered from Big Spoon and I have ordered A LOT! I love that now they have glass, reusable containers that help keep our environment healthy too. Willie, Rosie and family are incredibly thoughtful people and I love knowing them and loving them.
Thank you for doing what you love to do and helping make my life easier, healthier and delicious!"
"At first I tried it because we try to patronize and support local initiatives. It took a couple of weeks to see how wonderful the food was. I am a pretty good cook myself, - not that I cook much complicated dishes but I do care about eating healthy, tasty, and varied. That’s exactly what they do: excellent ingredients, sensible cooking, variety and added convenience. I have a very busy job and I have replaced the frozen items I often used as shortcuts by buying at the Big Spoon Kitchen. The weeks when I know I’ll be busier I buy more items, others I buy less. It gives me a tremendous freedom to know I can eat healthy and delicious, in the half an hour the dish is in the oven I make a fresh salad, boil some potatoes, or fix up a quinoa. With a little organization I am buying less in the supermarket and having less stress in the evenings. An extra jar of soup is always wonderful for lunch on Saturday! Big Spoon Kitchen food is hearty, direct, you always know exactly what you’re eating, and their facilities are always clean and pristine: I trust them. Which dishes are my favorites? The beef stews, the enchiladas, the lentil casseroles, the curries, and of course the empanadas! Again, their soups are delicious, - potatoes, borscht, leeks, carrot - and those extra things as the salsas or muffins Oh my!"
"Great tasting food, using locally sourced veggies and meat. A night off from cooking, since we rarely go out to eat. An opportunity to catch up with Rosie, Will and Steve, and sometimes a peek at baby Alice. Chance encounters with other friends. We appreciate you all!"
"It's so nice to have a quick meal ready to go. I like trying things that I have never made before! Thanks Big Spoon!"
"Big Spoon has made a big difference in my life since it opened a year ago. I have had delicious, nutritious meals with abundant variety. And no planning, shopping and cooking! I love this place!"
"I’m a regular Big Spoon customer for many reasons. Everything about Big Spoon is local – it’s North Country people running a North Country business using North Country ingredients. The whole process of ordering online and picking up food is super convenient. Most importantly, the service is fantastic! There’s always a mix of dishes that are completely new to me, alongside familiar options that make their way to the menu (and my order) on a regular basis. Big Spoon Kitchen is a local treasure, and I’m really happy to have them feed us every week."
"I’ve worked with Big Spoon Kitchen in quite a few capacities: catering (a joy to work with and a pleasure to experience), Dinner in a Bag at the Potsdam Food Co-op (clear directions, great recipes, and fantastic results), and individual meals picked up at the kitchen, where the atmosphere is cozy and calm, and the prepared foods a delight. I especially enjoy the vegan options (thank you!) and knowing I can plan my week with some Big Spoon meals tucked in with my own cooking. My favorite Potsdam neighbors!"
"We enjoy Big Spoon's food frequently. I have food allergies and appreciate their careful ingredients listing. The food is fresh, local, delicious and we enjoy the imaginative, changing menu. Also, we applaud the use of returnable, glass containers and earlier reuse of containers, a change from our throw away culture.
Big Spoon is immaculate and the wait is quite short. We have never had an incorrect order."
