Introducing BigOven Kitchen

This Thanksgiving, BigOven, the food content distribution platform and award-winning social media network for home cooks, unveils its new Knoxville-based production studio and test kitchen along with a series of cooking-made-easy videos and blogs, as a taste of what’s to come.

BigOven Kitchen, located in their newly renovated space in downtown Knoxville, features a state-of-the-art studio kitchen with smart appliances, dining room, bar, and lounge. Outfitted with professional-grade video and audio equipment for high-end video production, BigOven Kitchen will enter the world of food content creation and trend experimentation in order to make food adventures at home more approachable through entertainment. BigOven Kitchen’s intent is to provide unique and creative opportunities for audiences to gather around food and to capture memories.

Steve Siopsis, CEO of Aisle Ahead, the company behind BigOven, said in a news release:

“At Aisle Ahead, we have been providing ecommerce solutions to grocers and brands for years while trying to understand and solve the obstacles consumers face when trying to decide what to eat. We have found that technology can provide answers to the shopper’s grocery journey — from the convenience of curbside pickup-and-delivery to personalization through machine learning. But, content is needed to help make decisions. Through BigOven, we have been distributing food content, but are now excited to enter the content creator space to apply all the things we have learnt over the years. Considering how technology is also changing how we cook, with smart appliances entering the kitchen, we needed a space that would let us experiment, see what makes sense and really helps. The possibilities are endless with our new studio kitchen.”

In addition to unveiling their new studio space, BigOven will release a series of video recipes and accompanying blogs across their websites, app, and social media platforms.

BigOven, as a recipe-sharing social media network, has been dedicated, from its inception, to bringing people the love of food in a palatable format. Their videos are no exception. Striking a grounded balance of being both approachable, yet cinematic, each video delivers recipes that are at once simple, yet artful. In other words: “Cooking, Simplified.”

As BigOven expands into the media of video, companies and viewers can also expect future projects to include adventures in live-streaming, specialty segments, and so much more. Jordan Kooijman, Director of Marketing at Aisle Ahead, adds:

“BigOven has been in the food content sphere for over ten years, and we bring a wealth of experience to help create content that people want to engage with.”
