Fish and seafood play a very important role in Mediterranean cuisines; after all, the Mediterranean region is named after a sea! Nowadays, there is much debate on how much and how often we should eat fish and seafood, for our own health and the planet’s. In this class, Camila will highlight sustainability from the sea, sharing with us the better options to cook with. The menu will be complemented with a vegetable dish and a dessert typical from the Balearic islands, which Camila considers the epitome of Mediterranean cuisine.


Tombet – Mallorcan Summer Vegetable Stew

Calamari with Onion

Minorcan-Style Mussels

Menjar Blanc: Almond Milk Pudding

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 works at the Torribera Mediterranean Center, 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
