As January rolls around, and the glow of the holiday feasts and festivities die down, it's the perfect time of year for foods that are soothing, nourishing, and also delicious! Start the new year off right with some of Camila's favorite Winter Grain Bowls that can easily be incorporated into a new weekly meal prep routine, or add some flair to an old one. All of these dishes can be made in large batches to allow you to mix them up into different combinations throughout the week.

Cook along with Chef Camila from the comfort and warmth of your own kitchen, as you learn to prepare hearty bases of amaranth, oats, and quinoa. The fun is in the toppings! Add spice, crunch, tang, and sweetness to customize your bowls just the way you like them. From a game-changing Tahini Curry Dressing to Ume Toasted Sunflower Seeds, you’ll be amazed by how delicious whole grains can be! 

Besides delicious food, here's what you can expect from an online class with Camila: Chef Camila has a broadcast-quality multi-camera setup with professional microphone and lighting, creating top notch video quality. Some visuals and graphics are included for clarity and visual aid. The class is fully interactive; Camila can see your home setup and respond to questions in real time on substitutions, cookware, technique, and the recipe. Classes are paced so that you can cook along in real time, or, if you prefer, sit back, watch, enjoy, and learn. Registrants will have access to the class video to rewatch as many times as your heart desires! Click here to see a sample video of what to expect in class.
