Rave Reviews

I have been getting your soups at Spicer Brothers for almost two years now.  It was such a pleasure to finally meet the person who makes most of my lunches for me!  I LOVE your soups so much Josie!  My parents are now in their 80’s and have started buying them as well.  My Dad thinks your corn chowder is the best he’s ever had and he can’t wait until it comes on the  menu.  Thank you for bringing your foods to Oregon City.  I hope you never stop cooking!

Josie – last year you catered my friend’s shower and you made a smoked salmon chowder that  was incredible.  It had fresh dill in it, which we adored.  We have been across the country and  back and tried chowder wherever we can ~ wherever we can find it.  Your chowder is the best  by far!!   ~ Joan and Kyle, Oregon City, OR

On Monday I happened into this remarkable little produce store near our new home in Oregon City and found not only some of the best fruits and vegetables (we’re from Utah…) but local goods we love as  well.  Bob’s Red Mill, Dave’s Killer breads, salsas, sauces and SOUPS!  Fresh handcrafted soups!  We bought your Moroccan lentil soup with the curry meatballs – amaze-balls!  So so so good.  The enthusiastic checker told me all about your soups and got us VERY interested in coming every week now. Can’t wait to try your Thai tom khaa and your butternut bisque.  I heard they are life changing.  Oh andsomething about you making a 6 cheese macaroni and cheese.  That’s on our list too.  Thanks for putting in all the efforts and making our new neighborhood that much cooler. Your food rocks!  ~ Food Fans from Oregon City.

Just wanted to let you know I write the average of 3 checks per year, so one book lasts me what? Forever? I just had to order new checks because WE LOVE YOUR SOUP SO MUCH! Thanks for making my work lunches something to look forward to. Believe me, in my line of work, looking forward to something is super important. Thanks – Spence

OMG Josie. I came in late in the spring last year but I just wanted to let you know my friends and I are hooked I’m getting ready to order again this week. The Tom Khaa soup was awesome.  My mom, my 86 year old pickey eater loved it as did my best buddy.  I just had the French lentil soup with sausage for lunch and dang that was amazing.  Thank you!!! Another big order from me.  Plus sounds like we got a few more people curious. – Emmy

We really love getting our soups delivered. I haven’t tried one I haven’t liked, and I am kind of picky. I am trying to expand my food choices and you are making some of the best soups I have ever tasted.  – Liz M.

I go to this really great gym where everyone is family.  Where everyone plays a part in community, friendship, support systems, good health, and good fun.  It’s the Warrior Room in Milwaukie.  It’s a blast and has become a large part of my life.  One of the things I’m enjoying this season is the soup deliveries from Pepper & Salt.  The benefit of being a Warrior is you get fresh, healthy homemade soups delivered to your gym where you can pick them up after your workout and know that when you get home you have this amazing meal ready to warm-up — it keeps you from stopping at Burger King on the way home!  It’s just another great thing about this amazing place I call MY GYM!

Your soups this week were AMAZING! You have outdone yourself! Can’t wait to get my next order! ~ Liz

Great soups this week! yummmmmmmm ~ Jonnel

Will you please marry me and make me soups every day?  I can’t believe how good they are – every single bite! – Monkey Man

I came back into town after a long road trip (18 hours) and found my soup waiting for me. What a life savor! They are both delicious, and I’m still enjoying them this weekend. – Herta

One of those great partners is Pepper & Salt. They taught our campers how to make fresh pastas and soups and we are so thankful. ~ Schoolyard Farms

Tom Khaa is my favorite soup.  I always order at Thai restaurants.  BUT your Tom Khaa, my dear is probably the best Tom Khaa I have ever ever had!  I was getting sick so decided to order two.  So glad I did because I see that you sell out quickly!  Every single bite is full of flavor and so many fresh ingredients – its simply orgasmic.  First of all, it kicked Mr. and Mrs. Germ’s butt – so I feel a 100 times better.  And, secondly, my husband is out of town so I get to have container #2 all to myself.  Next time Im container #3!  Thank you so much Josie! ~ Lauren

Noel Orthodontics is “SOUPER” excited to include Pepper & Salt soups in our fall baskets! We will be dropping them off at 27 local dental offices! They are all in for a treat – Jessica

Oh my goodness Josie – this corn chowder is to die for.  Thank you for making my boring lunchbox meals delicious for my kids.  We all had corn chowder for dinner last night and the kids asked for more in the their lunches today.  Does this freeze?  Because I’ll need more next time!  – Carla

I forgot to order soup this week and asked way after the cutoff.  Thank you so much for letting us get in on your soup Josie — you were offering our two favorites the Lemon Tarragon Chicken with Wild Rice and the Cuban Black Bean.  My roommates and I are all so friggin’ happy right now.  Friends, a cold beer and a big bowl of this Cuban Black Bean is hitting the spot.  Tomorrow – Lemon Tarragon Chicken.  Thanks again – we love your soups!!!!! – Tina and Mary

Josie – I met  you yesterday at the soup tasting at Marylhurst.  I just wanted to ask you if you have any more broccoli cheddar chive.  My son loves it.  I can not believe how good your soups are ~ we enjoyed trying all of them.   I don’t know how you make all this soup, grow all the food too, and then convince my picky 4 year old to try your soup.  Amazing.  He loved them all, but he’s asking for broccoli cheddar now!  If you have more, we’d like to buy two.  Thank you – Emily W.

Oh My Gosh!! I just had the Creamy Smokey Portabello soup for lunch and it was A-MAZ-ING!! I’ll give my testimonial that this is one of the tastiest soups I have EVER had – please make it again! Love it, love it, love it!! Thank you!! – Lori

Love love LOVED the cornbread last week. I can’t believe it was GF! Hope it’s on the menu again soon. Can’t get enough of Josie’s soups.

My family LOVED the chicken, roasted peppers and quinoa soup last week!!  We look forward to your menu emails every week – Chris
