Gaucho García brings Argentine cuisine to Sacramento May 10, 2016

Here at Gaucho García, we've always been foodies at heart. When we're not working or spending time with our young children, we're in the kitchen. Mrs. Gaucho been cooking her Argentine family's recipes since she was a little girl: from milanesa to handmade pasta, and of course, empanadas.

So you can imagine our surprise and dismay when we moved to Sacramento and discovered that there was not a single South American (let alone Argentine-specific) restaurant to be found. How can a city that touts its diversity neglect an entire continent from its culinary scene???

Building upon Gaucho García's strong brand and high-quality products, our goal is to open a small restaurant that exposes Sacramento to a whole new culinary experience. Showcase flavors from afar but infuse them with local ingredients. Have a modern, eclectic space where diverse communities feel comfortable. Grow a catering business, where people can experience the instinctual wonder that is cooking with fire. 

Over the last decade, empanada shops have popped up in many US cities with renowned food scenes. San Francisco has El Porteño, San Diego has Papa Luna, New York has Empanada Mama, Chicago has Cassava, and Sacramento will have Gaucho García.

You can help make this a reality! We need your help to win the Calling All Dreamers Contest, hosted by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. Their prize package will provide the resources and support we need to launch our business successfully.

Muchas gracias. See you in Sacramento!

GAUCHO GARCIA® HARDWOOD GRILLS NOW AVAILABLE IN USA AND CANADA February 05, 2015

One-of-a-Kind “Parrilla” Applies Modern Design to Traditional Open-Fire Grilling

 

MORGAN HILL, CAFeb. 5, 2015 — Gaucho García®, maker of a unique line of grills and accessories dedicated to the hardwood cooking experience, today announces the online availability of its patent-pending flagship grills. Offered in two sizes, the grills have several features that aren’t found on conventional barbecues: an adjustable V-shape grilling surface, a drip pan for collecting juices, and a firebox that neatly turns hardwood logs into red-hot coals.

“There is no better way to extract pure flavor and ‘honor the ingredients’ than to cook them with fire,” said Gabriel García, founder of Gaucho García. “Our grills make hardwood grilling efficient and intuitive, and are perfect for chefs, foodies, BBQ enthusiasts, food purists, or really anyone with a backyard.”

Gaucho García’s patent-pending design includes the following features:
  • V-shaped, stainless steel grilling grate in two sizes (20” x 20” or 41” x 20”)
  • Stainless steel drip pan for collecting juices
  • 18” of vertical grill adjustability with crank handle and automatic spring lock
  • Craftsman touches featuring ash wood handles for the crank handle and shovel and steel grill paneling
  • Pre-drilled legs for option wheel add-on.
Included with the purchase of each grill is a Brasero—a self-contained firebox for coal production. Each Brasero consists of a iron charcoal basket, a poker/scraper tool for tending wood, and a long-handled shovel for transferring the coals to the grill.

Now available on the Gaucho García website, the smaller model grill—the Chico—is priced at $2,399 US. The larger model grill—the Grande-- offers more than double the amount of cooking space and retails for $3,899 US. The Brasero will also be available for a la carte purchase at $899 US.
