This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our registration policies here

This cozy class offers recipes to get you through January—the longest, coldest month—with a loving, comforting, boost. In the crisp start of the year, we feel sluggish from all of the excesses of the holiday season, and tight on budget from all the gift giving. Here we offer traditional recipes from different parts of Spain that are all nourishing, warming, inexpensive, and most importantly, just plain delicious. Cozy up with these dishes to bring warmth to your start of 2023!



Roasted Garlic Soup, with optional topping of Green Olive Toast

Simple Tasty Rice with Clams

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
