In Barcelona, “vermouth time” implies not only the delicious drink, but also an excuse to gather leisurely with friends on a late weekend morning, slowly indulging in savory tapas. We rather like this idea! So in this hands-on workshop, Camila Loew will help us to channel the vivacious spirit of Barcelona and to cook recipes that are perfect for the season of entertaining that's upon us. Vermouth included!
Chickpeas with Salmorejo
Potato, Onion and Chorizo Omelet
Mushrooms with Olives and Feta cheese
Manchego Cheese Montadito with Herb Oil
Bonito Montadito with Red Pesto, Piparra Peppers and Arugula
Camila Loew holds a Ph.D. in Humanities and is a certified nutrition consultant. She lived in Barcelona for 15 years, and learned, through health-supportive culinary schools in Spain and NY, but mostly by cooking from local markets, that the best cooking relies on simple recipes with outstanding ingredients. That's the Mediterranean way she conveys in her classes, along with the concept of sobremesa, which happens to be the name of the company she runs. Sobremesa is the leisurely time we spend gathered around the table. In addition to running Sobremesa and Sobremesa Culinary Tours (through which she offers food-centric journeys across the ocean for fellow food-loving travelers), Camila teaches her love of regional Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines at The Cooking School at Cavallo Point, Ramekins Culinary School, and Bauman College as well as 18 Reasons. She also teaches Eating for Healing at the Cancer Support Community. For more info visit sobremesa.us and sobremesa-tours.com.
