A hands-on, collaborative cooking class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.

This month, 18 Reasons' 10th Anniversary coincides with something big in Camila's life: her imminent move back to Spain, where she lived for 15 years before joining us at 18 Reasons. To celebrate and commemorate, Camila will prepare some Catalan cuisine classics that attendees to her classes have loved in the past. This will also celebrate that she will continue to work with us from afar, with her Spanish culinary tours and occasional visits back to the Bay Area! 
Pan con tomate with Spanish Ham and Manchego Cheese
Catalan Style Peas with Sausages
Spinach with Chickpeas and Pine Nuts
Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Anchovies and Goat Cheese
Grilled Leeks with Romesco Sauce 
Crema Catalana  
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.
