A hands-on class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.
Are you somewhat broke after the holidays, but still feel like entertaining? Not to worry: tapas can lend themselves to hearty tasting, light-on-the-pocket group meals that can still impress friends coming over to chat over a few glasses of wine. In this class, Camila will share with you some of the recipes that the American college students she taught in Spain loved to eat when they went out, not only because they were filling, delicious, and Spanish, but also inexpensive!
Patatas Bravas - Fried Potatoes with Spicy Mayo Sauce
Arroz con Mejillones - Rice with Mussels
Espinacas con Garbanzos - Spinach with Chickpeas
Pan con Tomate - Bread with Tomato and Manchego Cheese
Chocolate Montaditos - Chocolate Crostini with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Maldon, and Citrus Zest
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.
