Back of the Spoon

Back of the Spoon, a culinary venture rooted in cherished family traditions, began its journey in 2017. The name itself is a tribute to the founder’s grandmother, who advised stirring perogies with the back of the spoon to prevent tearing the dough. This simple yet profound kitchen wisdom inspired the creation of Mushroom Dill Perogie Casserole, a unique blend of traditional Ukrainian recipes.

Origin and Concept Development
The concept of Back of the Spoon evolved from the founder’s passion for cooking and hosting parties, where the perogie casseroles became a surprising hit. Recognizing the demand, the founder started preparing these casseroles for friends and events, eventually leading to the establishment of a certified commercial kitchen to meet the growing interest.
Public Launch and Reception

Back of the Spoon made its official public debut at the Spruce Meadows Christmas Market, where it was met with great success. This marked the beginning of a journey that combined a love for cooking with the joy of bringing people together.
