We enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day in May with Camila's Argentinian empanada class, where Camila and her children shared Camila's mother's recipe. With this June class, we hope to teach folks who weren't able to attend that class, which sold out in a heartbeat. In this class, we will prepare two types of empanadas: the large pie-type empanada (called "empanada gallega" in Spain) and the individual dumpling-style empanada as known in Latin America (which in Spain is called empanadilla). They are all popular, simple, and admit infinite variations. This is a perfect technique for creative home cooks and bakers!



Empanada Gallega: Spanish pie-style empanada, filled with bonito (or tuna) 

Empanadillas or Empanadas Argentinas, with a traditional corn and bechamel filling known as humita.

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
