Gastronomy and Wine Pairing is a partnership between Chef Alejandra Espinoza and Certified Advanced  Sommelier Lauren Caro.  A positive energy was born and the desire to collaborate on sharing our passion, education and knowledge from our 8 years fine dining restaurants experiences.  We are very pleased to accommodate and create for you a unique, memorable and delish moment!

Why this strange name? First of all, ‘Ground’ represents the Floor of a kitchen. We don’t want to open a restaurant, we want to create and cook everywhere we can — so each floor, wherever we are, is ours for a fantastic culinary experience that could last for 10 minutes or for 10 years. It’s our ever-changing challenge. Then, it means Earth, where vegetables come from. We want to create culinary experiences with the best products, locally sourced from the best places. And it also means the Powder of Spices – to have ‘ground’ [verb ] the seeds from the earth into spice – and we use a lot a different spices in our cuisine. Finally, it represents our beginning – our roots – our Origins. We come from different countries, with different journeys and different stories, that we want to share with you through our food.

Inspired by our roots in both Ecuador and France, our time working in some of the world’s best restaurants and developing brands for global companies – and a chance encounter between 2 creative women in San Francisco — GROUND KITCHEN was born.  Using the purest products, and creative twists, we want to create a “delish” food story for you!
