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 works at the Torribera Mediterranean Center, and teaches academically about Mediterranean food culture to American students abroad.
