Our resident Spanish instructor published a cookbook during the pandemic, and we're so proud! While the rest of us might not have been as productive as Camila while sheltering in place, we can still benefit from Camila's creativity and passion in this class! 

The Sobremesa Cookbook follows Camila's philosophy of emphasizing shared meals at the table, with simple and high quality seasonal ingredients. Though the book offers 45 Spanish-influenced recipes for home cooking, we have chosen a few for this class, which fit the season and have been some of readers' favorites so far.

Check out the book's details and buy it online (hard copy or e-book) on Camila's website here. If you register for this cooking class, we will email you a discount code to purchase the cookbook!

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
