This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.
After a few months of holiday-induced rich food, we crave different food to balance it out. You might call it a "detox," but that word has negative connotations and we refuse to restrict flavor or joy from our plates. Rather, it's time to celebrate our leafy green friends in the kitchen!
Greens are the best way to cleanse post-indulgence, and January is the perfect time of year to resolve to eat more greens! We realize that sometimes cooks don't know what to do with these vegetables, and this class will offer delicious, fun alternatives to the classic sautéed greens (which we still love and enjoy!).

Camila Loew holds a Ph.D. in Humanities and is a certified nutrition consultant. 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. Since 2014, Camila has been sharing her love of regional Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines at 18 Reasons. For more information visit her website www.sobremesa.life
