This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

Take a trip to Barcelona's world-famous Boqueria Market and explore the world of mushrooms with Camila! In the very back of this bustling food market is a legendary stall, Bolets Petràs, that serves a variety of mushrooms to local residents and the famous chefs in the city. In this class, we will cook recipes inspired by Petràs's brand new book, Comer Setas (Planeta Gastro, 2020) which means, "Eating Mushrooms."  

We know that mushroom varieties vary per store and region, so there is room for substitutions. If you're looking to incorporate more mushrooms into your repertoire, or learn a new approach to your favorite fungi, this is the class for you! If you need some mushroom shopping help, please don't hesitate to send us a note!

Having lived alongside the Mediterranean for almost two decades, she believes 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 Culinary Tours, through which she offers delicious cultural and culinary experiences abroad for fellow food-lovers, Camila founded and directs the Food Studies & Gastronomy program at the University of Barcelona, and teaches academically about Mediterranean food culture to American students abroad.
