Chefs Alejandra and Kevin met while cooking at a fundraiser for the victims of the Ecuadorian Earthquake of 2016. Working together allowed them to share their unique passion for food and culture; quickly leading to friendship and a shared culinary pursuit. Alejandra invited Kevin to explore her home country and to be a guest at her wedding. During this visit Kevin fell in love with the culture and cuisines of Ecuador. They're here to share some of that passion, culture, and energy through food.
