Although the tomato is native to the Americas, Spanish cuisine can barely be understood without it. Come join Camila to celebrate the tomato at the peak of its season, late summer! It's the best time of year to eat it at its prime.  Learn, cook, and devour tomato-rich recipes from the Spanish repertoire, classic and modern, for a tapas style summer feast.

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  and
