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

For this class, chef Camila will return to her mother country of Argentina, and offer us a twist on her mother’s recipe from Camila's childhood. Camila will be cooking alongside her kids, and we'd love to have you do the same! 

We will make the dough from scratch, using butter or oil, instead of the traditional suet. We will make two options for filling the empanadas: a traditional meat filling and a veggie option, too.

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
